Pakistan hope Hasan will shine again in CT final

Saturday, 17 Jun, 2017

The call Sarfraz had to make on winning the toss was whether to bat first, put runs on the board and then back his bowling attack to defend whatever total it might stack up, or to hope for the bowlers to do the job up front so that the batsmen didn't have too many to chase.

The sensational accusation by Aamer is going viral on internet and is inviting a major chunk of suspicion on Pakistan's journey in CT-2017.

"I need to tell Sarfraz that you have not created a wonder here.We are going to congratulate you when you play well but we'll also criticise you when you don't", Sohail told during an interview to a Pakistani news channel. We all know what happens behind the scenes.

Morgan had publicly highlighted the advantage Pakistan had in returning to a slow, low pitch they had played on only 48 hours earlier but there has been no official complaint to the International Cricket Council, which allocated three pitches per ground and oversees the preparation, due to an acceptance they were thoroughly outplayed. Comments like this will apparently impact their team's morale'. "Pakistan should be proud that they have cricketers that can not speak English", says writer and columnist Aakar Patel. "They have worked really hard to get this far and I feel so bad when people work so hard and the ex-captains or ex-players talk bad about the team", Harbhajan told India Today.

Chasing a below-par 212, Pakistan on Wednesday 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 partnership to set their date with the victor of the second semi-final between India and Bangladesh, on Sunday. "If you do something wrong we will say it and if you do something right we will appreciate it. Keep yourself settled or you wouldn't last for long".

For all but possibly Liam Plunkett the World Cup in 2019 is a feasible target and there will be plenty of time for younger players to force their way into the picture before, then including in next week's T20 series against South Africa when England will blood a raft of exciting rookies. Stuart Broad will be in Notts ranks but he went for 83 off 10 overs just two days ago in their play-off fixture at Taunton. If we play good cricket, definitely we will win this tournament.

Pakistan will now meet the winners of India vs Bangaldesh match in the final on Sunday.

"Their coach Trevor Bayliss has always asked for them to play smart cricket, not just gung-ho cricket". "But the simple fact is we are still an improving side and getting to a state of play that we think we're capable of, but these guys are mostly 26 or 27 so they should be around for another five or six years".

The skipper added: "I was not expecting we would bowl them out for 210".

Morgan, however, did give credit to Pakistan for their victory, especially their bowlers.

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