Aamir Sohail backtracks on match-fixing allegations

Joe Root, who top-scored for England with 46, spoke afterwards of his extreme disappointment but hopes he and the team can learn from the setback as they eye the chance to lift the World Cup on home soil in 2019.

Although Pakistan showed a clinical performance against England, they struggled against Sri Lanka during their three-wicket victory. Right from the beginning of England's innings, Pakistan stuck to their plan and didn't try to do much.

All-rounder Ben Stokes tried to steer the team to as respectable a score as he could, but he fell for 34 with 2.2 overs remaining, a period of the game where England could have done with some of his trademark lusty blows to the boundary.

From there on, the Men in Green were in cruise control as they chased down the target in just 37.1 overs with Babar Azam (38* off 45 balls) and Mohammad Hafeez (31* off 21 balls) at the crease at the end.

But Morgan promised lessons would be learnt for two years' time.

"I think it [today] was the best game because it was a semi-final, no one recognised us". "You have to adapt in knockout cricket, so it's an important lesson".

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". They adjusted to conditions extremely well, and the wicket was obviously slow and low and hard to get away to start with.

Mohammad Kaif, for instance, pointed out that only teams from the sub-continent have made it to the final leg of the tournament.

Trump keeps much of Obama's Cuba policy
The policy memo directs the Treasury and Commerce Departments to begin the process of issuing new regulations within 30 days. Critics of the rapprochement said Obama was giving too much away without extracting concessions from the Cuban government .

"Coming from Edgbaston which was a good wicket to a used wicket, we didn´t adapt very well", Morgan told Sky Sports.

So happy was the 30-year-old, he labelled the victory as the best of his 74-match one-day global career. "That's why we won".

England coach Trevor Bayliss thinks that exiting the tournament at this stage is probably correct when considering the hosts' ranking in world cricket.

"We did prepare, Pakistan bowled well but we didn't adjust and 200 isn't competitive, 250-270 would be a good score".

"There's a number of our guys who haven't been at this level before and it is a learning curve".

"Having watched the game against Sri Lanka, we actually didn't think it was that bad".

"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".
