Morgan vows England will 'stay true' to beliefs after Pakistan heartbreak

June. 15 (ANI): Following England's painful ouster from the Champions Trophy at the hands of an aggressively impressive Pakistan, skipper Eoin Morgan was left lamenting a lack of home advantage, asserting that the reused Cardiff pitch led to England being bundled out.

There was growing optimism, after a flawless group campaign this month, that England were at last about to add a maiden one-day global title at their 19th attempt since the first World Cup in 1975.

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

Speaking to Press Association Sport while taking part in the final leg of broadcaster Jeff Stelling's March for Men for Prostate Cancer UK, Collingwood reflected on England's disappointing Champions Trophy exit, but insisted they came up against opponents at the top of their game and are good enough to fare much better in their home World Cup in two years' time.

Zaman, playing only his third ODI, went for the big shots and even though he mishit a lot of them, kept on playing in the same vein. "You guys have been thrashed fair n square by Pakistan", Younis tweeted.

"I think the pitch was very good for both teams", he said.

Chasing a below-par 212, the Green Brigade 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 stand to set their date with the victor of the second semi-final between India and Bangladesh, on Sunday.

According to the source, the company wants injection of new capital, and this has been suggested to the majority shareholder. We are going to resolve it amicably. "The CBN and NCC are working towards resolving it amicably", the CBN source said.

Even usually big-hitting all-rounder Ben Stokes - fresh from an unbeaten century against Australia at Edgbaston - took 64 balls to make a 34 that, remarkably, did not include a solitary boundary.

"The wicket was obviously slow and low and hard to get away to start with", Morgan said.

"Pakistan bowled well but we didn´t manage to adjust with the bat".

If, two years ago, in the aftermath of the woeful World Cup, a semi-final place in this tournament had been offered, it may have been accepted as a decent stepping stone in the rebuilding process.

"I don't think there was any home advantage. They adjusted to conditions extremely well". "That's why we won today", he added.

Morgan is the only survivor in England's now much-admired white-ball team from the one Collingwood led to this country's only global trophy to date - at the ICC World Twenty20 in 2010.

Morgan, though, remained confident that this defeat would not stunt the development of the one-day side ahead of the 2019 World Cup, which will also be held in England.
