Follow ICC Champions Trophy semi-final score live

Damon Campbell | 15 June, 2017, 02:23

England were bowled out for 211 and Pakistan eased to their target with 12.5 overs to spare.

For Pakistan, the star of the day was Hasan Ali, who picked up three crucial wickets and contributed to England's sluggish run rate.

Openers Azhar Ali (76) and Fakhar Zaman (57) then helped knock off the inadequate total with nearly 13 overs and eight wickets to spare as England bowed out of their own tournament at the semi-final stage.

Fakhar reached his 50 off 49 balls before being stumped by Buttler off Rashid for 57 but Azhar and Babar Azam calmly continued to milk runs all around the ground as England's bowlers ran out of ideas.

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.

Still young in his global career, Hasan Ali has already shown that he could potentially be an asset to the Pakistan side for years to come.

The ICC Champions Trophy is one trophy which both England and Pakistan have not won, with England finishing runners-up, twice, in 2004, and 2013, both at home. Today as well they told us to not think about the match and just play the natural game. Sarfaraz's men, after beating South Africa and Sri Lanka, were confident about their winning momentum against unbeaten hosts England.

Meanwhile Sarfraz said: "England are a good team so we have to play positive cricket against them".

"I think it was a great win", Sarfraz said. After the India game, the credit goes to the team management how they boosted us.

Even after a chastening defeat which ended England's interest in a tournament for which they were many people's favourites, their captain made it clear he is not for turning.

"One thing we didn't do was adapt to conditions, which I thought Pakistan did extremely well", said England captain Eoin Morgan. He scored 76 before Jake Ball got the better of him with a slower bouncer. Rumman Raees, Junaid Khan each got two wickets while Shadab Khan claimed the vital Joe Root wicket.

Replacing the out-of-form Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow's wicket held a charmed life from the outset. The Aussies were 44 runs ahead of the Bangladesh on DLS calculations, when the match was called off due to rain, needing just four more overs to force a result.

Root was caught behind off 18-year-old leg-spinner Shadab Khan for a busy 46 and Morgan played a loose waft to edge Hasan and depart for 33.

However, Bairstow top-edged one off Ali and Hafeez took an easy catch at deep square leg, leaving England at 80 for two.

Stokes, fresh from his career-best 102 not out against Australia, took 64 balls to score a 34 that, remarkably for the usually big-hitting all-rounder, did not include a single boundary.
