ICC CHAMPIONS TROPHY 2017
ICC Champions Trophy Day 14 wrap 15 June 2017
After spending a night full of celebration in Cardiff, Pakistan took the road to London brimming with confidence ahead of their Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday.
Openers Azhar Ali (76) and Fakhar Zaman (57) then helped knock off the inadequate total with nearly 13 overs and eight wickets to spare as England bowed out of their own tournament at the semi-final stage. "After two years of positive one-day batting, that is the biggest disappointment", read his column. Now we are in the final.
"Today was a ideal performance from all departments", said Ali.
"What I meant that day on your programme was that people should stop confusing Sarfraz otherwise we will see a good talent go to waste", Sohail insisted.
England captain Eoin Morgan said Pakistan "played brilliantly" but he appeared unhappy with the wicket. "At this level, all teams have quality bowlers and quality attacks. It was a wonderful performance".
"Credit goes to the bowlers and the batters who finished it very well", Sarfraz said. Everything we did play was quite calculated.
Asked how self-belief had been restored following a defeat by India greeted with widespread condemnation back home, Ahmed explained: "After the India match, we just motivated the guys".
'We are building up to that World Cup, ' said Bayliss in the aftermath of their eight-wicket thrashing in Cardiff. "We did prepare like we were going to play on a used wicket", said the former Ireland batsman. "Now we are in the final".
If India win the match then fans must be overjoyed as they will witness the two rivals facing each other in the final of the tournament. "Every game is a knockout game and I told my boys to play their game and not worry about the result". "It was my first big event as captain".
But none of that dash or even much in the way of cricket know-how was on show as they failed to adjust to the demands of playing on a used pitch against Pakistan in Cardiff on Wednesday.
Pakistan has pulled up a surprising yet a convincing win against the powerful England team upsetting the home crowd. Debutant Rumman Raees claimed 2 for 44 and the recalled Shadab Khan nabbed the key wicket of Joe Root as a collective display from the bowlers shackled an England batting lineup renowned for its destructive capabilities. "It is also the responsibility of the senior players to encourage and advise the younger players so that they can give good performances for Pakistan which will help us all in the long run".
