The Green Shirts tremendous win ensures a final berth in the mega event where they await the victor of the second semi-final between India and Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Thursday (tomorrow). For an addition of another 63 runs, the team lost another 5 wickets and before everyone thought that Pakistan will choke to defeat, Sarfraz gave the crucial stand the team needed.
Openers Azhar Ali (76) and Fakhar Zaman (57) then helped knock off the inadequate total with nearly 13 overs and eight wickets to spare as England bowed out of their own tournament at the semi-final stage.
Pakistan certainly made far harder work than they ought to have done of getting to the knockout stage in a winner-takes-all clash given they bowled Sri Lanka out for 236, with pacemen Junaid Khan (3-40) and Hasan Ali (3-43) doing the bulk of the damage.
Requiring under five runs an over, Pakistan set about their task in clinical fashion as Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali delivered a 74-run opening partnership.
And their fans could have been forgiven for thinking the worst when Pakistan suffered a 124-run thrashing by arch-rivals and title-holders India in their Group B opener, with Arthur himself branding the team's performance "shambolic".
When asked how Pakistan managed to score at 5.7 runs an over on the same surface that England had managed just 211 on in nearly 50 overs, Morgan replied: "I think the explanation is they played two days ago on it".
Last year, England has thrashed Pakistan 4-1 in an ODI series at home and host will look to repeat this in this match.
Tensions did rise for Pakistan when Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez and Ali all fell within 18 runs of one another, and coach Mickey Arthur's side hit a mid-match lull in tempo that threatened to throw off their pursuit. When asked how Pakistan were preparing for a game against the hosts and tournament favourites, he played down any possibility that they were daunted by the challenge.
Gausman has permitted at least eight hits in five straight starts - not the ideal recipe to slow New York's hard-thumping lineup. He broke the game open with a three-run 450-foot bomb in the first inning to make it 5-0, the longest homer of his career.

The first-period goals chased Rinne from Nashville's net; however, backup Juuse Saros ended up not faring any better. Schultz's shot from the point went through the legs of Nashville forward Auston Wilson and goaltender Pekka Rinne.
Despite being on the losing side, James was one of the stars of the Finals, scoring 41 points in Monday's game . Warriors fans had to suffer through watching their team blow a 3-1 series lead past year .
He was gassed, and the Cavs couldn't keep up as the Warriors scored 132 despite 20 turnovers. "That's not our game". Two of the greatest one-on-one players in the league went to work, James finishing with 39 and Irving with 38.
