"The incident occurred during the 14th over of Pakistan's innings when Roy used an audible obscenity after misfielding which was clearly heard by the umpires". Pakistan's bowling eventually clicked after nearly a dozen games and the resulting victory is a testament on how an attacking mind-set is much more rewarding in inducing wins as compared to a strategy that might be geared towards run containment.

"We've gone from probably one of our best performances in the field at The Oval to not extremely bad, but it's cost us probably about 15 or 20 runs in the field, which is a lot in a one-day game", Morgan told reporters.

In a tournament where England is considered to be the joint favourites along with India, Pakistan emerged out as a victor by defeating the hosts by 14 runs.

England will hope that Morgan escapes a ban this time around.

"It's tough to take because we could have done something about it". After winning the toss England made a decision to bowl first but Pakistan set such a massive target of 349 runs in front of the hosts that they couldn't able to reach despite smashing two big centuries. The entire team only got 23 runs more than that against the Windies.

It was the spinners who struck next, England captain Eoin Morgan (nine) bowled by Mohammad Hafeez before Pakistan captain and wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed held an edged cut by all-rounder Ben Stokes (13) off Shoaib Malik.

Pakistan's performance against England genuinely underscores the narrative that success in this World Cup, going forward, would only come as a result of collective team effort along with structuring wins around the strengths of the team.

All three players admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Jeff Crowe of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing. "We ar every confident, our team is very good and balanced", he further added. When you play Pakistan you expect everything from them. "We're bitterly disappointed to be on the wrong end of the result". We got that kick.

"Joe and Jos kept us in the game".
