England set 212-run target for Pakistan

Google celebrates the ICC Champions Trophy with doodle, game

Hasan's 39 wickets are the most for a Pakistan bowler after 20 matches; Sarfaraz Nawaz had 36 after 20 games.

The final will take place on June 18th at the Oval, in London. "If you're playing a world class team, definitely, you play more positive cricket against England", Sarfraz said. "I think this (his emergence) is something marvelous for Pakistan cricket".

"I was thinking that if I play 50 overs, we would win", he explained.

But Sarfraz Ahmed, who had already distinguished himself with two fine catches behind the stumps, steadied the innings, steering them home to 237-7 in the 45th over with a match-winning innings of 61 from 79 balls.

"But certainly today it was - coming from Edgbaston (against Australia), it was obviously a big jump in pace and bounce and too much of anask for us to adjust to really".

Captain Eoin Morgan and Joe Root added 48 runs for the third wicket before the latter departed for 46.

In the end, it was all-rounder Ben Stokes' 34, which helped England cross the 200-mark.

Rumman Raees earlier picked up the wicket of opener Alex Hales (13) in the sixth over of the innings.

And all that was done without their most risky bowler Mohammad Amir, who had to sit this semifinal out with a back spasm. "We have to discuss what happens", Arthur said, responding to a question about the fragility of the team's batting lineup. "Obviously he's our main bowler". He can bat and bowl, he is a good batsman and we were confident when he was there.

"Credit goes to the bowlers", Sarfraz said. Pakistan is a team that historically have relied on their pacers to see them through and this time it is no different.

Morgan then failed in his attempt to dominate Hasan at the start of a spell, edging behind from up the wicket when the seamer pushed the ball wider. Hasan Ali has picked up the crucial wickets, and comeback man Junaid Khan has filled the void left by enforcer Wahab Riaz. The southpaw ended hitting seven fours and a six, that came off a top edge over the wicketkeeper.

India captain Virat Kohli surpassed South Africa captain AB de Villiers and Australia vice-captain David Warner to reclaim the top spot in the ICC ODI batsmen rankings. Unable to hit out with the ball at the risk of England not using all its overs - despite constant temptation from Pakistan's well-drilled attack - Stokes did worse with the ball, going for 0-38 in his 3.1 overs.

The job was completed by Babar and Mohammad Hafeez after Pakistan's other opener was bowled by Jake Ball for 76.
