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

Before the Champions Trophy, the last time India and Pakistan played a one-day worldwide was during the 2015 World Cup.

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.

According to Harbhajan Singh, Pakistan worked after India defeat to defy the odds.

Chasing a below-par 212, Pakistan on Wednesday rode on a brilliant 118-run opening stand between Azhar Ali (76) and Fakhar Zaman (57) before Babar Azam (38 not out) and Ali helped the team with a 55-run second-wicket partnership to set their date with the victor of the second semi-final between India and Bangladesh, on Sunday.

But legendary Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis said blaming the pitch was a "lame excuse and former England captain Hussain agreed".

It's a huge gain for us that Jason plays in tomorrow's Royal London One-Day Cup semi-final at Worcestershire.

Pakistan, who were not given much of a chance in the competition, have put together a run of three consecutive wins to propel themselves to the final of the prestigious tournament, where they face arch-rivals India. And they did so in style, despite being without injured left-arm quick Mohammad Amir because of a back spasm.

"I never said that Sarfraz follows someone else's agenda". He understood a great chance for England to win their first ever global 50-over tournament had gone begging. "We adapted to conditions, we knew if we restrict them we could easily chase it down", he added.

"Any team can have a low point, which we did after that India loss, but the main thing is that we have (a) management that stepped forward to support us, and helped us believe in our own abilities". Everyone would have seen us fight as a team and play together as a gelled unit.

It was sheer luck that got Pakistan a win against South Africa in the group stage as the result was decided under the D/L method.

"I think we need to continue playing exactly as we are and just get better at it", he said. "And after that match we have bowled well, fielded well and today the batting clicked as well". "Now we are in the final". After England's semifinal loss to Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy yesterday (June 14), it is hard to find much comfort from a desperate performance made all the more dispiriting because an in-form England team, which had a very real chance of winning the whole tournament, bombed when it mattered most.

"The other thing I said was that the facilitators of the win can not be named".

There is the scope for putting big runs on the board batting first, but the pitch ensured that it would be a battle of skill. "We hope whoever comes through we manage to beat". He confessed that he had spoken this before the semi-final clash between Pakistan and England.

"Sarfraz was asked after the Sri Lanka match whether he wanted to dedicate the win to Miandad".

"There will be a lot of talk about the Cardiff pitch after Pakistan dumped England out of the Champions Trophy. We have to be sensible about it - and if there's someone else who deserves to be in the team then we have to look for that", said Trevor Bayliss, the England head coach.
