The tournament hot favourites England, who until now had thrashed each and every side in this tournament were expected to dish out a similar treatment to Pakistan in the semifinal.
It all started to go pear-shaped for the home team when Pakistan bowling came into their own in a hot sunny day at Cardiff on a dry surface. First the bowlers and then the Pakistani batsmen led by attacking opener Fakhar Zaman put on a show and hammered the hosts out of the tournament.
After such a huge upset, many England fans along with experts were made to eat a humble pie as twitter left no stone unturned in trolling England and praising Pakistan on such an unexpected result.
Here is all the cracking action from the twitter:
Extraordinary to watch possibly the strongest ever England ODI team being dismantled by possibly the weakest ever Pakistan ODI team #PAKvENG

England surrenders and goes away leaving India, Pakistan and Bangladesh behind to fight among themselves. I have read that script before.

What was more unexpected? Pakistan keeping England down to 211, or winning by 8 wickets? Long live cricket.

Tournament favorites dropping 1 by 1. Incredible, crushing win by Pakistan. That first match against India seems a long time ago… #CT17
