Edgbaston to Cardiff too much of an ask to adjust to - Morgan

15 Juin 2017

Their opposite number Bairstow - brought in to open for the first time in global cricket in place of the out-of-form Jason Roy - had responded with a battling 43, but on a used pitch that precluded fluent strokeplay as the ball swung, England could never get a foothold and folded tamely in their attempt to set a defendable total.

Chasing a total of 212, Pakistan were absolutely spot on with the bat right from the beginning as Azhar Ali and Fakhar Zaman put up an opening stand of 118 runs. Bangladesh seized that lifeline with both hands to orchestrate an extraordinary run-chase against New Zealand, so there is no denying the fact that they deserve their place in the semi-final.

India play Bangladesh in the second semi-final in Birmingham on Thursday.

In 30 overs of the first Powerplay - first ten overs - in this tournament, India have lost only one wicket.

Pakistan will face the victor of tomorrow's/Thursday's semi-final between India and Bangladesh, meaning we are guaranteed an all-Asian final.

Morgan believes that experience, on the same strip prepared for Wednesday's match, played its part - and spelled out that England did not take unpredictable Pakistan lightly.

Mohammad Amir, who is suffering from back spasm, has been left out and Rumman Raees has replaced him.

"You are always comfortable with a partner who goes hard up front", Azhar said.

"There was certainly plenty of good work with the ball carried out by Bangladesh's bowlers as they held New Zealand to a modest 265 for eight in Cardiff last time out". From 33/4 we could win against the Kiwis. We have seen during the league stages itself that a lot of teams have surprised the opposition. "It was a wonderful performance".

Here is what Bangladesh fans need to say ahead of the Champions Trophy semi-final against India. We like that pitch.

Asked how self-belief had been restored following a defeat by India greeted with widespread condemnation back home, Sarfraz explained: "After the India match, we just motivated the guys".

Miandad was eventually recalled, but Pakistan still struggled, winning just one of their first five matches. That helped us. Both teams are playing really well, all the best to them (India and Bangladesh). "Now we are in the final".

"Credit to the youngsters for performing on their first big tournament".

However, Pakistan's power-packed line-up of fast bowlers is offset to some extent by the lack of too much firepower in their batting.

England's £1.7million man therefore had little option but to delay his charge deep into the last 10 overs - and his patience was not to be rewarded significantly before he mistimed an attempted big hit into the off-side ring off Hasan to go for a highly untypical 34 from 64 balls, having hit no boundaries. So I don't have to think that since it's India, it's a grudge match.

"All credit to Pakistan today, they were too good for us", Bayliss told Sky Sports. Mashrafe Mortaza admitted to brain freeze in those games, particularly in Bangalore previous year, but suggested the way out for them would be to not think of it as a maiden semi-final appearance in a global event.

They have come close a couple of time but failed to deliver the knockout punch.
