Morgan, who was one of Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali's three victims, refused to completely absolve his batsmen of any blame as they lost their final eight wickets for the addition of just 83 runs.

Pakistan bowled and fielded tightly to restrict the hosts to a paltry total of 211 all out and the lowest-ranked team in the tournament knocked off the runs in style with a massive 12.5 overs to spare.

His England counterpart Eoin Morgan said his side failed to adapt to the conditions in Cardiff.

He said: "We will have to evolve in whatever manner the game does over the next two years in the lead-in to the World Cup, but certainly I think we're moving in the right direction".

A good start was needed from the home bowlers for them to stand any real chance of victory, but after Mark Wood's first ball of the innings went down the leg side to be given as a wide, the tone was set.

"We left ourselves short adapting to conditions".

"Nobody recognised us, nobody thought we'll qualify for the final", said Sarfraz after defeating England in the first semifinal.

They collapsed, however, on a sluggish pitch from 128 for two in sunny conditions which normally favour batsmen and the bowlers failed to fix the damage as Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali shared a stand of 118 to lead Pakistan to their target. I think, going into today's game knowing that we were going to play on a used wicket potentially brought Pakistan's game closer to their home. If he again gets wickets in the final, that will help us.

He added: "The fact we've produced brilliant performances in this tournament and then play like that on this wicket is extremely disappointing".


Pakistan are now placed at number eight spot in the ICC ODI team rankings.

He confirmed that, despite their setback, England's long-term ambition to win the 2019 World Cup remains on track.

The Yorkshireman added: "We know we re not the finished article".

EOIN MORGAN: I don't think there was any home advantage, if that's what you're asking. Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first on a slow and abrasive pitch which saw the England batsman battle to find any fluidity.

England hit only one boundary in the final 10 overs and there was not a single six in the innings!

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

He wrote that he had said that it would depend which kind of Pakistan turned up for the match and the team answered that one emphatically.

Imran Khan, the legendary allrounder who guided Pakistan to victory in the 1992 World Cup final, predicts an Indo-Pak final even though Virat Kohli's men still have to overcome Bangladesh in the semi-final.
