Pakistan will face South Africa in a must-win Super 12 match in Sydney at the T20 World Cup on Thursday. The maximum number of points Babar and his side can now reach is six. They need one of India and South Africa to drop points in their final games.

A loss for either side - or a no result for South Africa - would then give Pakistan the opportunity to snatch a top-two spot with a win over Bangladesh.
