Cricket players from Pakistan were devastated by the outcome of their DRS appeal against South Africa at the 2023 Cricket World Cup

On Friday, the South African cricket team survived a late charge from Pakistan to pull off a thrilling one-wicket win and move closer to the semi-finals of the Cricket World Cup 2023. Aiden Markram hit a solid 91, and at 206-4, South Africa was well on course to comfortably chase down a 271-run target. However, it was left to the last pair of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi to score 11 runs while surviving 11 balls. Shamsi survived a leg-before appeal that went to the umpire's call-off fast bowler Haris Rauf with eight needed before Maharaj hit spinner Mohammad Nawaz to the square-leg boundary to pull off the win in 47.2 overs, sparking wild celebrations in his team's dressing room.
Maharaj, seven not out, also added 10 runs for the ninth wicket, with Lungi Ngidi four, but Rauf took a stunning catch off his own bowling to send Ngidi back. The win took South Africa to the top of the table with 10 points from five wins in six matches.
