Pakistan bowled England out for just 211, in an era where 300 is considered a ODI 'par score', after captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and fielded. They then cruised to their victory target finishing on 215 for 2 with a massive 77 balls to spare. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-champions-trophy-2017-200395/live-scores/england-vs-pakistan-live-cricket-score-1st-semi-final-match-181418-full-scorecard.html" target="_blank"><strong>Full Cricket Scorecard, Pakistan vs England, ICC Champions Trophy 2017, 1st semi-final, Cardiff</strong></a> <p></p> <p></p>"Coming from Edgbaston which was a good wicket to a used wicket, we didn't adapt very well," Morgan told Sky Sports. That prompted Pakistan fast-bowling great Waqar and he came back with a fierce tweet <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en">Stop giving that lame excuse Eoin Morgan regarding the used pitch,,,,You guys been thrashed fair n square by Pakistan <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/CT2017?src=hash">#CT2017</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/PakvsEng?src=hash">#PakvsEng</a></p> <p></p> waqar younis (@waqyounis99) <a href="https://twitter.com/waqyounis99/status/875040832155463681">June 14, 2017</a></blockquote> <p></p>Pakistan had played in Cardiff on Monday, beating Sri Lanka in what was a virtual quarter-final, and Morgan added: "Pakistan did that (adapt) extremely well and full credit to them. They outplayed us today on this wicket. I don't think we were simply used to it. We did prepare like we were going to play on a used wicket. Pakistan bowled well but we didn't manage to adjust with the bat. Two hundred isn't a competitive score", stated Morgan. <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan could face arch-rivals India in Sunday's final at the Oval if the title-holders beat Bangladesh in Thursday's second semi-final at Edgbaston.
