Here is what Misbah said about Sarfraz after Pakistan's victory over England

"This was a golden chance to win a tournament at home, and I think all we can do now is keep looking towards that World Cup and use this as a really good platform", Root added.

Well though Pakistan bowled, the knowledge they had struggled to get to 237 in seeing off Sri Lanka in the Welsh capital just two days earlier was a stark reminder to England of what might have been had they managed to set a total of around 250-270.

"Hopefully, he will recover for the finals", Sarfraz said. We must give credit to the selection committee for selecting these players from the domestic circuit and their performances in the PSL.

"Credit goes to the bowlers". Rumman played unexpectedly today but did well. The Pakistani pacer, who also happens to be the highest wicket-taker of the tournament after his triple-strike against England, dismissed opponent skipper and one of the consistent performers Morgan, which led to the middle order collapse and an eventual defeat for England. 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. They have got huge strength in depth as well.

"I think it will have to evolve in whatever manner the game does over the next two years in the lead-in to the World Cup, but certainly I think we're moving in the right direction".

It wasn't a faultless performance in the field with a couple of catches going down in the first half of England's innings, although they were long forgotten by the end as Fakhar pulled off a stunning catch at deep square to remove Moeen Ali and substitute Ahmed Shehzad ran out Adil Rashid with a direct hit. "My heart aches to hear these sounds again in stadiums of my Pakistan!" he further said referring to the fact that Pakistan don't play their home matches at home but in Dubai.

On Sunday, Pakistan will take on India in the final.

"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)". They were very motivated.

Talking about India rematch in the final, he said, "Both teams (India and Bangladesh) are playing well, so we will play whoever gets through". We continue to learn, everything we did was calculated, but Pakistan had played on the wicket previously and that helped. "May the better team win".
