Champions Trophy final an all South Asian affairs

Champions Trophy final an all South Asian affairs

Such was Pakistan's control that Ben Stokes's 34 took 64 balls and did not include a single boundary.

Amir has been replaced by Rumman Raees.

And all that was done without their most risky bowler Mohammad Amir, who had to sit this semifinal out with a back spasm. Since his debut, all of Pakistan's remaining bowlers have a combined seven three-fors.

"I am under no pressure and looking forward to ending ICC Champions Trophy as the best bowler of the tournament", Hassan had told Geo.tv before the commencement of the eight-nation tournament.

But Ahmed wasn't taking anything away from his bowlers' performance on Wednesday.

While the middle order batting remains a concern, Sarfraz said Pakistan will address it so that the likes of Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik click when the situation demands. They bowled really well.

Pakistan will be hoping that combination of luck and brilliance in 1992 gets them past England again tonight.

House Intel Committee requests Comey tapes from the White House
Comey also said Trump and his administration tried to "defame" him by spreading "lies, plain and simple", about his firing. Trump added that he would "100 percent" testify under oath and answer questions from special counsel Robert Mueller.

The pace of the wicket proved England's undoing as the previously used track was superbly exploited by seamers Junaid Khan and Rumman, while Hasan Ali was able to extract enough movement to remove all three of the hosts' dangermen.

Eoin Morgan's men were favourites to win the tournament, but were comprehensively outplayed in the Welsh sunshine in front of a crowd full of noisy and energetic Pakistan supporters.

Three-time World Cup finalists England have been trying for the past 42 years to lay claim to a trophy in a major 50-over tournament. All those boundaries were only fours and no sixes. Junaid (3-40) added to the mid-order carnage as Sri Lanka, who had begun breezily to reach 82-1 from 14 overs, could do little more than see out their overs to post a disappointing 236 all out, with Hasan Ali also weighing in with 3-43. He is No. 7 in the ICC all-rounder rankings but had an all-round miserable game. England are the only team to have 3 players in the Top 10, when you look at the top scorers after the world cup.

Babar Azam, 4. Mohammad Hafeez, 5.

England made one change from the team which beat Australia in the group stage, bringing in Bairstow for out-of-form opener Jason Roy. Bairstow opened the batting for the first time, and survived a close-call for leg-before in the first over and two dropped chances afterward.

It was an outcome which confounded nearly all predictions after England had breezed through the group stages - while Pakistan began their campaign with a landslide defeat against India and sneaked into the last four only when they beat Sri Lanka by three wickets at this same venue two days ago.
