  • Morgan unbowed as befuddled England fluff their lines

Paul Collingwood is still confident Eoin Morgan's England can become world-beaters on home soil in 2019, despite their failure at the semi-final stage in this summer's Champions Trophy.

England hit 211 runs, which Pakistan chased down with 77 balls to spare, and Morgan believes that his team were at fault.

In his coloumn on a foreign news website, the former English cricketer said that the speculations on the Cardiff pitch was disrespectful to Pakistan as the side played well and adapted to the conditions.

"I thought we bowled OK but certainly defending 200 we have to produce a well above-par bowling performance".

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

England skipper Eoin Morgan said that his team didn't adapt to conditions, coming from Edgbaston to a used wicket.

Morgan is the only survivor in England's now much-admired white-ball team from the one Collingwood led to this country's only global trophy to date - at the ICC World Twenty20 in 2010. "Now we are in the final". Between the two significant wins, they also brushed aside Asian rivals Sri Lanka. "Our bowlers probably tried to chase the wickets too much and served up too many half-volleys". It may have been nerves, but mostly "the skill, variety and verve of Pakistan's fast bowlers proved to be too good for England's batsmen, who were confounded by a mixture of reverse-swing, yorkers, bouncers and slower balls".

"I don't think we were simply used to it. The ball also doesn't swing in cold weather and bowlers' hands get stiff so they find it hard to swing the ball", added Mahmood.

When the members of the Republican team were announced, mention of Scalise's name drew a standing ovation throughout the stadium. Most say they don't need extra security, while others say for certain events, they wouldn't mind the extra security.

They then beat South Africa by 19 runs on Duckworth-Lewis formula and edged out Sri Lanka by three wickets to finish second in Group B. They then upset title favourites England by eight wickets in the first semi-final. And depending on how the grounds come back from the first three games that they play determine which pitches they use, but they're not allowed to prepare all of them.

"I think it depends on what the ICC want to get out of the tournament", the 30-year-old added.

While Bangladesh is underdogs in this match but we can not underestimate their performances in the last few years.

Morgan's opposite number Sarfraz Ahmed hailed Pakistan's near flawless performance.

"I'm just very disappointed", Root said.

"It's a big challenge jumping from venue to venue but we're going to have to do that with the World Cup so it's important for us to go through games like today for our experience".

They were completing a remarkable turnaround after losing so heavily 10 days ago to India, who will bid to join them in the final when they take on Bangladesh in Birmingham on Thursday.
