Root confident England can win 2019 World Cup

Rumman Raees

Cardiff felt more like Karachi on Wednesday as Pakistan fans dominated the 12,500-strong crowd and watched their team thrash the tournament hosts by eight wickets to progress to the final.

Morgan suggested being asked to play on a pitch used two days previously for Pakistan's final group game, created problems for his side.

"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".

"I don't think there was any home advantage", he added. We did prepare like we were going to play on a used wicket.

Pakistan's rise means they will automatically qualify for the 2019 World Cup, leaving the race between West Indies and Sri Lanka. Pakistan relied heavily on the bowlers but yet again the batsmen let them down and eventually a bowler had to take the responsibility of finishing the match off with the bat.

Sarfraz Ahmed, seemingly lost for words after the heavy loss to India, maintained faith in the younger players in the squad and it paid off in one of the most lopsided semi-finals in the tournament's history. "They adjusted to conditions extremely well", he said.

England made a solid start as they reached 128-2 but they suffered a collapse to lose eight wickets for the addition of just 83 runs.


"So it was a big challenge and one that was too far for us". "We knew that coming into the tournament", Morgan said of the pitch. We bowled okay but 200 was well under par.

Pakistan will now play the victor of the second semi-final between India and Bangladesh to be played tomorrow in Birmingham. "Whenever he comes on he's getting wickets".

Their only comparable limited overs success came when they won the 2010 ICC World Twenty20 in the Caribbean.

Bayliss, meanwhile, said Jos Buttler is still very much in contention for the first Test against South Africa on July 6 despite being selected for England's three match Twenty20 series next week.

Pakistan, of course, started this tournament with a woeful display against India at Edgbaston. Number three Babar Azam played sensibly for his unbeaten 38 off 45 balls and so did Mohammad Hafeez (31 off 21), who hit the winning boundary to spark wild celebrations. But just three days later Pakistan, the lowest-ranked side in a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide teams bounced back to defeat number one South Africa.

The captain was thrilled with the performance of the youngsters in the team: "I'm very happy about my youngsters performing, especially Hasan who is improving day by day".
