since then the government has made some silly mistakes, However,the ups and downs of Pakistan’s nerve-racking match against Sri Lanka,it is coach Mickey Arthur’s expressions — from having his face buried in his hands to celebrating in joy after Sarfraz Ahmed hit the winning runs Pakistan’s turnaround since the tournament opener against India has been remarkable Though most of the batsmen have been found wanting the bowlers have shouldered the responsibility ably Meanwhile the team havedoubled their intensity on the field to ensure that the tournament doesn’t end up asa damp squib Despite this experts have prophesied a one-sided match when England lock horns with Pakistan at Cardiff But if there is one thing that this year’s Champions Trophy has taught us —barring the unpredictability of English weather and Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method —it is that no clash is predictable Ahead ofthe first semi-final here’sa look at the key players who could make the difference in the all-important clash: Fakhar Zaman Pakistan Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman AFP Pakistan are a side that lack power hitters They don’t even have the likes of Ben Stokes or Kedar Jadhav or Hardik Pandya to provide the much-needed 20-30 extra runs late in the innings Owing to this the first Powerplay becomes crucial for Pakistan If Fakhar had not scored a brisk fifty against Angelo Mathews’ men the situation could’ve been far more difficult for Sarfraz and Mohammad Amir In spite of being a rookie the southpaw has displayed maturity and seems to have a sense of calm under pressure a trait which is rarely found in Pakistani batsmen With Azhar Ali asked to play the anchor role the onusto provide a fast and steady start will fall on Fakhar Joe Root England England’s first drop Root is probably one of the biggest reasons for England’s revival in ODI cricket With Root at the centre other batsmen feel free to play their natural game as he anchors the innings exceptionally well It wouldn’t be wrong to say that England’s batting revolves around Root Come Wednesday he will have to adopt a similar role to allow his teammates to continue what they do: fire on all cylinders He had an off day against Australia as he scored only 15 but hewill be raring to bounce back in the semi-final Sarfraz Ahmed Pakistan It is still a mystery as to why Sarfraz arguably Pakistan’s best batsman bats at No 6 Logically speaking there could be two reasons either the team isaware of the fickle nature of their batting and want someone reliable down the order or he as the captain yearns to take theresponsibility absorb the pressure and finish games off His knock against Sri Lanka may not have been the best but it was important He didn’t panic and batted according to the situation to steer his side home with an unbeaten 61 In this high-octane game Pakistan will need his tranquility both as a skipper and batsman Ben Stokes England Englands Ben Stokes celebrates scoring his half century Reuters Stokes is considered to be the world’s best all-rounder for a reason The unbeaten 102 against Australia probably encapsulated his importance tothe side When he came in to bat the score read 35/3 Any other batsman would have gone into the shell whilecoming toterms with the chase But not Stokes He took the attack to the opposition and befuddled Steven Smith and his bowlers His bowling has not been as clinical as his batting an area he would like to improve on but his athleticism and outrageous fielding make up for it As England finally look to finish their long wait towin an ODI title Stokes would like to put in impactful performances in the business end of this event and bury the ghosts of those four towering sixes West Indies’ Carlos Brathwaite hit off his bowling in the World T20 Hasan Ali Pakistan Hasan has been Pakistan’s most consistent bowler (in terms of wickets) since the 2015 World Cup His ability to bowl cutters with superb control has helped him scalp the likes of Faf du Plessis and Kusal Mendis England are a side that don’t take the foot off the pedal even in the middle overs This is where the pacer will have to step up and curb the opposition’s flow of runs He surely has the ability to do that but pressure got the better of him in front of India If he is able to surpass that we shall witness a lot of downward fist pumps Adil Rashid England Rashid has gone strength to strength after being snubbed for the first game of the Champions Trophy He is now England’s second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament and bowled at an economy of 444 Eoin Morgan and Co have one of the best bowling attacks in the Champions Trophy but against Bangladesh it looked toothless After the leggie returned the tourney favourites have managed to assert control in the middle overs too Pakistan are a side that historically play spin well but Rashid has it in him to bewilder them through his dangerous googlies and subtle variations Suzuka: Mercedes lodged a protest against Red Bull’s Max Verstappen after an aggressive move that prevented Lewis Hamilton from snatching second place at the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday However Formula One’s governing FIA said its investigation into the incident will not take place until the next race in Austin Texas in two weeks Both teams have agreed to the ruling File photo of Max Verstappen AFP Verstappen went on to take second behind the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg and in front of Hamilton at Suzuka Hamilton clawed his way back through the field after a horror start left him in eighth place and was swarming over the back of Verstappen’s Red Bull in the closing stages But when the triple world champion tried to duck around the Dutch teenager approaching the chicane he slammed the door by blocking off the inside forcing the Mercedes to take evasive action Hamilton claimed Verstappen had moved in the braking zone but the Briton refused to elaborate after the race Stewards met after the race but agreed the incident could not be resolved until the F1 paddock sets up at Austin as Hamilton and Verstappen were unable to attend "After hearing initial comments by representatives of Mercedes the stewards decided that in order to ensure fairness and afford both drivers the opportunity to be heard the matter should be deferred" the FIA said in a statement "In accordance with article 1192s of the International Sporting Code the stewards delegate their authority to the stewards of the 2016 United States Formula 1 Grand Prix "Both team representatives agreed to this" Written by Shubhra Gupta | New Delhi | Updated: October 9 2015 2:48 pm The Walk review: The film and Gordon-Levitt shines in this final act as we watch with our hearts in our mouths breath suspended waiting for him to come back safely to the other side Related News In the early 70s a young French boy lost his heart to the Twin Towers in Manhattan He had already begun walking the wire stringing it up wherever he found space: between trees over a shallow pond between trees in Paris honing his skills as he went along But his heart’s desire was to get to New York and cross the space between the two towers ‘The Walk’ begins slowly and more than a tad stodgily as it follows Phillipe Petit’s (Gordon-Levitt) journey from little boy to young man cast out from home because of his desire to do what he wants his passage through the hands of celebrated high wire artist Papa Rudy (Kingsley) and his meeting up with the beautiful musician Annie (Le Bon) These two and a bunch of others become his partners in crime – because what he was about to attempt was not only dangerous but completely illegal — which leads him to the ‘other’ greatest city in the universe (the first being Paris of course) The Twin Towers were coming up at the time and we feel a frisson when we see them tall rising to the sky the light shining from its hundreds of glass windows That place is now Ground Zero and after 9/11 the world is a different place but back then in August 1974 for Petit it was paradise Gordon-Levitt turns in a showy if effective performance as a man with an inexplicable obsession His French sounds a little exaggerated lapsing into occasional flat American twanginess But given that there are so many people speaking in so many tongues in this film – Kingsley stops just this side of being a ham with his extravagant gestures and a polyglot accent and Le Bon is charmingly and authentically French – that it finally doesn’t matter What matters is the wire and the man on it; the void below and his sheer infectious joy as he conquers it The film and Gordon-Levitt shines in this final act as we watch with our hearts in our mouths (despite knowing that it is all computer graphics and digital wizardry even if the bulky 3D glasses make everything too annoyingly dark) breath suspended waiting for him to come back safely to the other side But you can’t help comparing this film to the 2008 documentary ‘Man On Wire’ featuring the man himself That one based on Petit’s book ‘To Reach The Clouds’ is all verite all tight with not one wasted moment This new one is a somewhat hokey representation of that truth but oh that jaw-dropping walk Like the unbelievably fearless Petit at this high point you feel you are soaring weightless high above the world Star Cast of The Walk: Joesph Gordon-Levitt Charlotte Le Bon Ben
