Sarfraz Ahmed’s brilliant 61-run knock secured a semi-final berth for Pakistan, who beat Sri Lanka by 3 wickets in the final Group B game in Cardiff. Sarfraz rescued Pakistan from a precarious position of 162/7 while chasing 237, to set up a semi-final date against England.

We win that time, we chased 300, so definitely our confidence is very high playing in Cardiff.”
