England crash out of Champions Trophy as Pakistan charge into final
England crash out of Champions Trophy as Pakistan charge into final
19 Junio, 2017, 14:59
England one-day captain Eoin Morgan has criticised his team for failing to adapt to the conditions following a shock loss to Pakistan in the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy.
However, Morgan did give credit to the Pakistan bowlers for restricting England to 211 in 49.5 overs.
"I thought we bowled okay but certainly defending 200 we have to produce a well above-par bowling performance". "We knew that we were going to play on a used wicket at some stage in this tournament".
Ben Stokes, usually one of the most destructive batsmen in world cricket, needed 64 balls to scrape together 34 runs and he failed to muster a single boundary on a pitch Morgan described as hard to bat on.
While Pakistan look ahead to Sunday and a possible reunion with India - Virat Kohli's side take on Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Thursday - England must reflect on how the bubble of their two-year resurgence burst. But certainly today, coming from Edgbaston, it was obviously a big jump in pace and bounce, and too much of an ask for us to adjust to, really.
While Pakistan's bowlers thrived on the slow wicket at Sophia Gardens, the same could not be said for England as all their key batsmen got in before throwing away their wickets.
He confirmed that, despite their setback, England's long-term ambition to win the 2019 World Cup remains on track.
Joe Root top-scored with 46 off 56 balls before being caught behind off Shadab Khan, but England's innings - for once in this tournament - never really accelerated.
"I don't think there was any home advantage", Morgan said. His opening partner, Azhar Ali, said Fakhar's freedom alongside him has made a huge difference.
The Ashes-winning skipper added: "Here they had every facet covered with 10 of the 11 players in form and the side playing a style of cricket that makes them a match for any team in the world, so to play that badly in a semifinal, with everything riding on the game, was terribly disappointing".
Pakistan, as they had when defeating England in an ODI at Cardiff previous year, received plenty of crowd support. "I think we played very well and that's why we won".
Pakistan had collapsed to 162 for seven chasing 237 against Sri Lanka but, two days on, there was no repeat of that batting slump.
"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".
Abbas also heavily criticised the English team for blaming the Cardiff pitch for their defeat to Pakistan in the semi-finals.
"I felt like we were trying to take a positive option against them", said Morgan.
