Auckland- This was the game this World Cup needed. This is the team this World Cup needed. It was getting pretty bland out here without the Pakistan bowlers. Defending only 231 in 47 overs at the small Eden Park, their left-arm quicks turned it on like only the ones from that part of the world can. Under pressure of the chase South Africa crumbled yet again, except for one man, captain AB de Villiers, who scored 77 off 58 and threatened to single-handedly steal the game, but once he became the ninth man to get out with 32 to get, Pakistan were assured of a win.
