    I had the impression Morgan was a good captain, but today I realized he is just an average who like to find lame excuses for their defeats.

  • Ms.Cricket on June 15, 2017, 2:20 GMT

    Morgan is a good captain when things are rosy but when there's trouble he is as clueless as Alicia Silverstone's Cher.

  • Anand_S on June 14, 2017, 22:31 GMT

    The batting line up which boasts of maximum power hitters failed to hit a single six and every batsman in the fragile line up managed to clear the boundary at least once.

    Pakistan won because of captainship of Sarfraz had the guts to debut 3 players leaving out even Amir khan well luck of winning toss was another factor

    Except for India's captainship of Kohli there is no other weak factor I am 100% sure if it will come to india vs Pakistan then india will win hands down like Pakistan against England

    It was't a mismatch, rather some people over rated England Team. Pakistan have always beaten them in crunch games.. Its not an upset rather its routine win

    Well, England have been playing well without a doubt. But I think they are a little over rated. They played most of the games at home. And they haven't won anything significantly yet. They just choked under pressure. They aren't even the number 1 side in the world in ODI cricket. Pakistan played well and absorbed pressure better than England. It was just about time England played like England. This over attacking strategy will only work when the pitch is flat and a batting paradise. On challenging wickets, application is needed. This wicket wasn't even greatly challenging I guess. It's always good to lose at least one game before the knockouts to get that wake up call. England were complacent and very untidy in their approach. Their body language was very poor too

    Great clinical comprehensive annihilation of previous tournament favourites.

    It's mentioned as "Stats highlights from the Champions Trophy semi-final between Bangladesh and England in Cardiff". The match was between Pakistan & England.

    Thats why this win was so good. It was a perfect show by Pak. Suoerb bowling, good fielding and no issues in batting. No ifs and buts in this win. Something missing from recent wins

  • chintu2005 on June 14, 2017, 18:03 GMT

    I believe the semifinal match was between England and Pakistan not bangladesh as mentioned on main heading
