Cardiff pitch gave 'home advantage' to Pakistan: Eoin Morgan

With ten wickets, Hasan is now the leading wicket-taker of the tournament.

But within touching distance of a first global 50-over title after three victories in the group stage, they crumbled limply to 211 all out and the bowlers failed to fire as Pakistan strolled to their target with almost 13 overs to spare.

"We played really positive smart cricket, so there are some big positives to take". "Yes, I will have that India Under-19 game in mind", he said.

The basic flaw is that England's one-day team is very good at hitting rather than batting; and the particular Achilles heel in this Champions Trophy was their opening partnership.

"Now the whole nation awaits our team making amends in the final against India - if they defeat Bangladesh", Khan posted on Twitter as he congratulated Pakistan on its semifinal win over England. The future is bright for captain Eoin Morgan and his team. "The team management also kept motivating us". They outplayed us today on this wicket. "I think those 15 overs in the middle when we lost quite a few wickets was vital". We did prepare like we were going to play on a used wicket.

All-rounder Ben Stokes tried to steer the team to as respectable a score as he could, but he fell for 34 with 2.2 overs remaining, a period of the game where England could have done with some of his trademark lusty blows to the boundary.

"The wicket was obviously slow and low and hard to get away to start with", Morgan said.

"It's the way the tournament is". We know we're not the finished article.

Hasan Ali hasn't been the same since he was hit for 70 runs by rival India in Pakistan's crushing defeat in their Champions Trophy opener. You have to be able to be good in all conditions.

"I don't think there was any home advantage", said Morgan. "No one thought we'd reach the final". Everything we did play was quite calculated. We did try and adjust to the wicket.

"It s disrespectful to Pakistan, who played brilliantly and made the best of the conditions".

Their chase was spearheaded by Fakhar Zaman (57) and Azhar Ali (76), who laid a solid foundation by sharing a 118-run opening stand.

England's hopes rested on taking early wickets, but they were punctured by the strokeplay of Fakhar, who threw everything at the new ball.

Meanwhile England coach Trevor Bayliss reckoned a semi-final exit was consistent with an ODI ranking of fourth. "But the simple fact is we are still an improving side and getting to a state of play that we think we're capable of, but these guys are mostly 26 or 27 so they should be around for another five or six years". 250-270 would have been a good score. There wasn't too much wrong.
