A fantastic all-round performance by Pakistan in the semi-final of the 2017 Champions Trophy saw them beat tournament favourites England by eight wickets.
After an excellent bowling performance despite the absence of Mohammad Amir, the batsmen cruised to the target of 212 for the loss of just two wickets. Sarfaraz Ahmed’s side will meet the winners of the second semi-final between India and Bangladesh on Sunday.
Here are some of the reactions!
Triumph for Pakistan Cricket Team, congrats on getting into the finals of the icc champions trophy.

England blitzed in Cardiff. Pakistan outbowled them, outbatted them, outthought them. This will hurt England. Well played Pakistan! #CT17

What was more unexpected? Pakistan keeping England down to 211, or winning by 8 wickets? Long live cricket.
