Aamer Sohail alleges Champions Trophy matches were fixed in Pakistan's favor

Pakistan fined for slow over rate against Sri Lanka

Pakistan fined for slow over rate against Sri Lanka

Since their woeful first-round exit at the 2015 edition, England had won plaudits for the dynamic way they had re-invented themselves as a "white-ball" side and they came into this match having won 11 of their previous 12 ODIs.

Eoin Morgan (33) and Root, who was the one England batsman to play fluently on the pitch, then added 48 runs for the third wicket before Root top edged a delivery from leg-spinner Shadab Khan through to keeper Sarfraz Ahmed.

According to SportsCafe, Sohail said Pakistan's victory in the Champions Trophy so far was because, "someone [from outside the team] is winning them matches".

Talking about India rematch in the final, he said, "Both teams (India and Bangladesh) are playing well, so we will play whoever gets through".

On the back of their tremendous wins over world number one South Africa and world number four England, Pakistan have now climbed to seventh in the ICC one-day internationals rankings updated on Wednesday. "But that won't wash with me", Hussain wrote in his Daily Mail column. I would like to praise all new players including Fakhar Zaman, Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees, Faheem Ashraf for playing a positive role in rebuilding Pakistan team.

The former cricketer said that his comments came following Sarfraz's refusal to dedicate his performance against Sri Lanka to Javed Miandad, saying that their former coach criticizes the team a lot. "In fact, it was timid".

Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was practicing with the House members, described hearing "dozens and dozens and dozens of shots fired". Reps Joe Barton , Kevin Brady , Mike Conaway and Williams - that attended the practice.

England will host the next World Cup in two years' time and Root, who is expected to assume one-day captaincy before that, said it was important for the side to keep improving.

He said: "We've stayed true to what we believe in and what's worked for us the last couple of years, and I think that's the continued formula for the future".

England have never won a major ODI trophy despite appearing in 19 global events at this level since the inaugural World Cup back in 1975.

Trevor Bayliss is confident England will reach their peak for the 2019 World Cup despite their crushing Champions Trophy disappointment.

Now Pakistan could have a chance for revenge against India in Sunday's final at the Oval if the title-holders beat Bangladesh in Thursday's second semi-final at Edgbaston. "I think those 15 overs in the middle when we lost quite a few wickets was vital". "We've played some really good cricket throughout the whole of this summer, and it was frustrating not being able to do it (in the semi-final)".
