Pakistan qualify for ICC Champions Trophy final

What made Wednesday's win all the more impressive was that it came just 10 days after Pakistan launched their Champions Trophy campaign with a woeful 124-run hammering by rivals India.

It seemed Pakistani batsmen were batting on a different pitch during the chase as they cruised to complete the target in 37.1 overs, after openers Azhar Ali (76 off 100) and Fakhar Zaman (57 off 58) provided a flawless start. "We played against some really good sides recently, and we've managed to beat them", he said.

A good start was needed from the home bowlers for them to stand any real chance of victory, but after Mark Wood's first ball of the innings went down the leg side to be given as a wide, the tone was set.

Unlike their Pakistan counterparts, England's bowlers struggled to adapt to the conditions and were too often short and wide, allowing easy runs to be picked up.

"I thought we bowled OK but certainly defending 200 we have to produce a well above-par bowling performance".

On the prospect of a rematch with India in the final, Sarfraz smiled and said: "Best of luck to both of them". He added: "One of the things about knockout cricket is that you have to adapt to conditions".

Pakistan would bowl brilliantly restricting the flow of runs and knocking England over for 211, a target they chased easily.

Even usually big-hitting all-rounder Ben Stokes - fresh from an unbeaten century against Australia at Edgbaston - took 64 balls to make a 34 that, remarkably, did not include a solitary boundary.

For Pakistan Hasan Ali took 3 wickets. "We knew that we were going to play on a used wicket at some stage in this tournament, and certainly we found out the other day that today was going to be on a used wicket", said Morgan. "Now we are in the final", he said. "Every game is a knockout game and I told my boys to play their game and not worry about the result", he added.

"I don't think we were simply used to it".

While India-Pakistan is one of the world's biggest sporting rivalries, Bangladesh are fast emerging as a worthy competitor.

Former Pakistan skipper Imran Khan, under whose leadership the nation had won 50-over World Cup in 1992, tweeted: "Now the whole nation awaits our team making amends in the final against India - if they defeat Bangladesh".

"I'm very happy about how my youngsters are performing". "I think all the three games [against South Africa, Sri Lanka and England] are the best games when I was captain". "That's why we won".

"We played very well".

According to India Today, the Bangladesh camp believes that Yuvraj Singh is India's weakest link and that they can target the southpaw in the field owing to his slightly iffy fielding.

Bairstow, brought in the team to replace out-of-form Jason Roy, hit 43 off 56 balls and he and Joe Root were looking all good before Hassan burst into the scene to send the opener back to the dressing room.
