The Men in Blue who were then unbeaten in the tournament; lost their first and only match in the league stage against the hosts. A win against England would have increased Pakistan’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals of the on-going World Cup 2019 tournament. However, the hosts defeated the Men in Blue by 31 runs in that game, slimming down Pakistan’s hope for the semis.

A lot of fans and former Pakistan cricketers were in the belief that India lost deliberately against the Eoin Morgan led side and did not give their best in that match. However, the Pakistani Skipper, Sarfaraz Ahmed believed that it’s is not right to say that India lost because of Pakistan and it was England who outplayed India on that day. “No, no, it is not right to say this. I don’t think India lost because of us. England played well to win,” Sarfaraz added.

In the press conference, a journalist was seen using the term ‘Bengalis’ addressing Bangladesh while asking the Pakistan Skipper of their match against them. Sarfaraz responded to this by requesting her to not use this word as it could be an issue for her on social media. “I think you should address them as Bangladesh. You are using an objectionable word,” the Skipper added.

The Skipper also praised the Pakistani stalwart, Shoaib Malik who announced his retirement from One Day Internationals and said that even though he did not have a good World Cup, he has served the country a lot. He further added that his presence in the team was very good for all of them.
