That's totally different to Pakistan, who have used some players in bizarre fashion and are often not playing the best eleven. Mohammed Sami has been yo-yoed in and out of the side confusingly. Fawad Alam has no defined role. The youngster has not bowled and he is batting at eight, which leaves one wondering if he is only there to trample grass.
Similarly, Abdul Razzaq has swung from opening the bowling to not bowling at all. What they need to do is settle on a more coherent plan for certain players and the results should flow from there.
Pakistan beat South Africa in the semi-final last year, by just seven runs, thanks to a heroic performance from their captain. They don't look like a team with the same drive this year. They've just lost that winning feeling, although they may regain it now that the situation is dire. South Africa are desperate to progress. They know that an early return home will not be tolerated by their fans and will force them to hear a word that hurts more than any defeat - choke.
