ICC CHAMPIONS TROPHY 2017 ICC Champions Trophy Day 14 wrap 15 June 2017

#Pakistan was thrashed by 124 runs by defending champion #India in the first group match in the eight-team tournament but rebounded quickly to beat #SouthAfrica and #SriLanka to qualify for its third Champions Trophy semi-finals. Pace bowler Hasan Ali took three wickets as Pakistan dismissed England, the only unbeaten team left in the tournament, for a mere 211. Pakistan chased down the target with relative ease, winning the match by eight wickets with 77 balls remaining. Shadab is also improving day by day, and now today Fakhar Zaman.

"More very disappointed", was Root's reaction when asked if he felt shell-shocked at being beaten by a team that most, including some Pakistani supporters themselves, had written off. Pakistan will now play the winners of tomorrow's second semi-final between India and Bangladesh. "They have been brought to the final due to external factors and not on the basis of their performances", Sohail said. "And after that match we have bowled well, fielded well and today the batting clicked as well". Mohammad Amir wasn't playing but Raees came in and did well.

"We looked at the game they played previously, 250, 270 would have been a good score".

England's other Test players have been rested for at least one of the T20 games against South Africa so they can gain pink-ball experience for their counties in day-night matches but Buttler will join them after the third game. "So that's why credit goes to the bowlers and team management". "It was a wonderful performance". His sole wicket against India was the risky Yuvrav Singh (53), followed by 3-24 in eight overs against South Africa, where he bowled Faf du Plessis for 26.

"We will have to evolve in whatever manner the game does over the next two years in the lead-in to the World Cup, but certainly I think we're moving in the right direction". "They put the ball in good areas and made it hard for us to get any sort of partnership going and we just didn't respond well enough today".

White House denies Trump wants Mueller out, but heat's on
Shortly after Trump fired Comey, a Justice Department official tapped Mueller to take up the investigation as a special counsel. Despite Spicer distancing the White House from Ruddy's allegations, Trump does have the power to sack Mueller.

"I don't think there was any home advantage", said Morgan. If we play good cricket, definitely we will win this tournament.

"Now we are in the final".

"Having watched the game against Sri Lanka, we actually didn't think it was that bad", he said. "It was my first big event as captain".

The fan support in Cardiff is particularly valuable for a team that, due to security concerns, has played just five global matches on home soil since 2009. A sequence of three straight wins, including a semifinal victory over a confident host, means Pakistan are the first team to qualify for Sunday's final.

"We adapted to conditions, we knew if we restrict them we could easily chase it down", he added.
