Cape Town - Following their 19-run Duckworth-Lewis loss to Pakistan on Wednesday, the Proteas must beat India in London on Sunday to ensure progression to the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy.
The Proteas were poor with both bat (with the exception of David Miller) and ball (with the exception of Morne Morkel), but Pakistan were full value for their win and have now thrown themselves right back into the playoff mix.
India and Sri Lanka meet at The Oval on Thursday, and what happens there could have a major say in South Africa's fortune.
Remaining fixtures in Group B:
Thursday, June 8: India v Sri Lanka
Sunday, June 11: South Africa v India
Monday, June 12: Sri Lanka v Pakistan
And, this is how the pool looks at the moment, with the top two qualifying for the semi-finals.
