ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Points Table Updated: Pakistan Moves to Number Six After Defeating England by 14 Runs in CWC19 Round-Robin Match.
England skipper Eoin Morgan after winning the toss elected to field, which did not prove to be a good decision for the English side. As Pakistan went on to post a mammoth total of 348/8 in 50 overs. Pakistan openers Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman gave their team a good platform by an opening stand of 82 runs. This was well converted by fifty each from Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez and Pak skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed.

England inning did not kick off well as they started their chase on bad note. They lost both their openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy in first 10 overs, where Roy was dismissed by Shadab Khan and Bairstow became the victim of Wahab Riaz. Even England skipper Eoin Morgan and last match hero Ben Stokes did not contribute much from the bat.
However, at one moment it looked England will cruise easily to home when Joe Root and Bairstow was on crease, but it did not happen as both got dismissed after scoring a century. Root got dismissed on 107 by Shadab Khan while Butler got out by a fine delivery by Mohammad Amir. Today all pacers contributed equally for Pakistan as well as a spinner. Let us have a look on some Twitter reaction after Pakistan victory over England.
Great Comeback By Pakistan!!!

Someone has rightly said:
"Form is temporary but class is permanent."
You just can't underestimate them.

Every Pakistani bowler came in and chipped in with a wicket today. However, Wahab Riaz and Shadab Khan strike wickets at the right time for Pakistan. Wahab Riaz although economically was expensive but he took crucial wickets of Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes at the right time. While Shadab Khan had the figure of 2/63 in 10 overs. Mohammad Hafeez was awarded the player of the match for his fine inning of 84 from 62 balls and for taking an important wicket of Eoin Morgan, as he had bowling figures of 1/43 in 7 overs.
