England have made 'huge strides' but need improvement, says Joe Root

"The way Pakistan team played against England gives us an impression that they are now in a position to do something special for the country in the all-important match", Zaheer said on Thursday. "It became easier for me to play the shots". I don't. Just let's wait, watch and enjoy this cricketing festival! Though he did cite conditions as one of the key factors in the match, he also credited the way Pakistan's bowlers hit the correct lengths for the pitch. With two half-centuries in the tournament so far including an excellent performance of 76 in the semi-final, Azhar seems to be answering his critics with the bat in style. Is that the best they've played with in any of the ODIs that you've been involved in? So I was very happy for my team performance, and all the credit goes to my team management and my players. The manner in which Fakhar confronted the much-vaunted South African bowling attack which comprised of the top ranked ODI bowler Kagiso Rabada surprised many.

He even went on to add, "We all know what happens and what not, and I can't tell you how they have won the games, I can't name them". That is what tournament play is all about, that's why it's so hard to win these ICC tournaments. "The boys now need to be level-headed and focus on playing good cricket".

Now that Pakistan are in the final, we can safely say that Pakistan has inflicted another Brexit upon England, and has jumped into another possible Armageddon against India. Then Junaid Khan, Rumman Raees.

The former Pakistan captain asserted that the way the team made a comeback after the defeat in the opening match has given him hope that they will be able to overcome the poor record against India in ICC tournaments and win the title. To Azhar, it is important that the younger players are given ample opportunities and guidance so that they can continue their success for the benefit of Pakistan. If you do something correct, we will appreciate you.

Everyone from media to cricket fans clearly picked England to reach the finals for second straight time and they had a valid reason for that, England side was superior in nearly every aspect and looked risky in the tournament with their fearless batting style and on the other hand, Pakistan, the side which was not supposed to reach even the knockout stage given their new look side and how they began the tournament, losing badly to arch-rival India in the opening game but they turned things around, defeating South Africa and Sri Lanka.

The top 18 players on the leaderboard going into the weekend have combined for zero majors. His schedule will pick up immediately. "I feel like I'm striking it very well".

"It was a golden chance for us to win something and all we can do now is keep looking towards that World Cup and use this as a really good platform", Root said.

"I think he (Amir) has a little bit of back spasm".

"But Morgan chose the wrong moment to attack Hasan Ali, who in the absence of Mohammad Aamer was Pakistan's biggest threat, especially when he was finding reverse swing from round the wicket against the left-handers".

After a stasis of Misbah and Azhar captaincy eras, Pakistan needed a jolt. Everyone would have seen us fight as a team and play together as a gelled unit. "Throughout the whole time, Morgs [Eoin Morgan] and the rest of the guys know that we're not the finished article but we have made huge steps and huge strides".
