England crash out of Champions Trophy as Pakistan charge into final

They looked like a team that wanted to win the championship, winning all the group stage match easily but in the end, when it mattered the most, they failed, simply outplayed by Pakistan.

Despite Pakistan's dismal record against India across ICC tournaments where the record is a whopping 13-2 in favour of "Men In Blue", the current Pakistan skipper has a reason to smile.

As for Pakistan, this wasn't meant to be their day or them tournament, but they are in the finals, call it luck or sheer brilliance, the side stuck together, believed in themselves and now anything can happen.

Two of the damaged compartments house the sleeping quarters, for more than 100 crew members, many of whom were likely asleep. Aircraft and vessels have been looking for the missing personnel since the two ships crashed in the pre-dawn hours Saturday.

Former opener Aamer Sohail has clarified that his statement with regard to alleged match-fixing by Pakistan was completely misunderstood.

"Sarfraz needs to be told that you have not done anything special. Don't wish to get into the details on who won them the games", Sohail said during a programme on a Pakistani channel. If asked, I will say that the prayers of the fans and God have won them the games. They have been brought to the final due to external factors and not based on on-field performance.

Sohail was himself at the heart of the match-fixing scandal that rocked Pakistan cricket in the late 1990s. Sometimes, the opposition does play very well.
