First up, a message from the Prime Minister, who knows a thing or two about comebacks.
Congratulations to the Pakistan cricket team for a great win and for coming back into form after a poor start in the warm up matches and the first WC match. You have the talent, all you need is the self belief that you can go all the way.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) June 3, 2019

Ian Bishop is not prone to hyperbole in the commentary box, but such was the scale of Pakistan's turnaround.
Sarfraz Ahmed could turn around the World economy of you allow him, surely. What confidence, character and inner strength he must possess.— ian bishop (@irbishi) June 3, 2019

Great game for both teams.. Pakistan's unpredictability side makes an appearance. England will be a bit disappointed but will draw confidence from a good chase as a reference so early in the comp.— Herschelle Gibbs (@hershybru) June 3, 2019
