Morgan insists complacency isn't to cause England's woe


But the real damage was done when England collapsed to 211 all out after Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed sent them in to bat on a used pitch.

"The turnaround is built on the inclusion of youngsters and it could only be done by a Pakistan team", said Ramiz Raja, an ex-Pakistan captain who now works at a cricket commentator.

With expectations high before the Champions Trophy along with the fact that England will also be hosting the 2019 World Cup, the loss comes as a big blow to the team. "That's why we won".

Earlier, Pakistan bowlers led by Hasan Ali put up a quality display to restrict England to 211 runs in 49.5 overs. They outplayed us today on this wicket.

"This was a golden chance to win a tournament at home, and I think all we can do now is keep looking towards that World Cup and use this as a really good platform". 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". "Pakistan did that well and played better".

England's squad for the first Test against South Africa at Lord's is due to be named after that round of Championship matches. You have to be able to be good in all conditions.

"I thought they bowled really well. There's plenty to look forward to this summer and certainly still plenty to play for". "It's a big frustration because I think we've played some great cricket in this tournament so far, and we weren't anywhere close to it today". Birmingham wickets have anyway helped the batsmen and a fresh track means there will be true bounce and the batsmen can happily play on the bounce. We did try and adjust to the wicket.

Fakhar hit Mark Wood for the first six of the match in the opening over of Pakistan's innings and he and Azhar played some delightful strokes in a fluent partnership.

Pakistan belied their reputation as a poor fielding side, with Fakhar holding a brilliant diving catch at deep square leg to dismiss Moeen Ali, while substitute Ahmed Shehzad ran out Rashid with a direct hit.

Many wondered if a tricky chase might nonetheless be on the cards, but openers Azhar and Zaman made a mockery of that notion in a stand of 118.

"Stop giving that lame excuse Eoin Morgan regarding the used pitch".

However, England coach, Trevor Bayliss echoed Morgan's sentiment that the direction of travel remained positive.
