Resurgent Hasan Ali starring for Pakistan at Champions Trophy

England crash out of Champions Trophy as Pakistan charge into final England crash out of Champions Trophy as Pakistan charge into final

Contrary to everyone's expectations, Pakistan stunned favourites England by registering a resounding eight-wicket win to enter the finals of the ongoing Champions Trophy here at the Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Wednesday.

"I think, going into today's game knowing that we were going to play on a used wicket potentially brought Pakistan's game closer to their home (conditions)".

England captain Eoin Morgan said his team did not simply adapt to the conditions.

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

"All we can do now is keep looking towards that World Cup", said Root.

"But coming from Edgbaston (where they beat Australia on Saturday), it was obviously a big jump in pace and bounce and too much of an ask for us to adjust to really". Hasan Ali was again instrumental with the ball in hand for the former World Champions as he returned with figures of 3 for 35 to restrict England to a paltry score of 211 in the semi-final.

Although Pakistan "bowled pretty well" on a surface which was "a little bit two-paced and went up and down" when the ball got softer, England should have been able to post a more competitive total than the 211 all out they mustered. "They boosted us really well and credit goes to the players as well. Credit to Pakistan, they played brilliantly".

Trump Administration Revokes Program To Protect Immigrant Parents
According to The New York Times , the DACA program decision impacts about 800,000 people in the U.S . The program was launched in 2012 and has protected about 787,000 young immigrants from deportation.

But the star batsman, England s Test skipper, is determined to put the hurt the white-ball side feel now to good use when the country stages the 2019 World Cup.

Nasser wrote in his column in The Daily Mail, "There will be a lot of talk about the Cardiff pitch after Pakistan dumped England out of the Champions Trophy".

Both India and Bangladesh have faced one defeats each in the tournament so far.

"Certainly not, not over confident", he said. When you look at other teams, you think of Kohli, Smith, Amla, Williamson, Root etc; when you think of Pakistan, you think of its bowlers.

Not a single six was hit in their innings. The match vs India was Pakistan's attempt at making a low budget superhero movie, the plan was to contain and outscore India; it was like watching superman vs the Green Arrow, we all know who wins that fight. Then Hasan came in, and he took a wicket.

India play Bangladesh on Thursday at Edgbaston in the other semifinal match with India the clear favorites - but so were England. Before the final group match against Sri Lanka, Mickey Arthur had called Hasan one of the "beacons" of this Pakistan side and they were sentiments echoed by Sarfraz who praised the youngsters that have come good. And now that they're in it, Pakistan fans want a rematch against India.
