Probably the most impressive things about England making it this far is how weakened their squad is. Wood, Topley and Archer are three first-choice bowling options all out (Wood's probably been the bowler of the tournament so far), and missing Roy, Bairstow and Malan.

I thought the 7-match Eng-Pak series was overkill, but now it just looks like a comprehensive dress rehearsal.

Eerily similar to the 92 World Cup - which would mean, if you're into signs and wonders, that Pak will win a terrific final, with Shaheen MOTM playing the modern Wasim substitute.
