Pakistan made it to their first ever Champions Trophy game final thumping down the home side, the favourites, England in the semi-final by chasing down the 212-run target for the loss of just 2 wickets and with as many as 77 balls to spare. Some tight and clever bowling helped Pakistan to restrict England to just 211 and chased down the target without breaking a sweat as their openers scored the fifties and gave a brilliant start in a small chase.
