ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Final

ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Final

Pakistan have been starved of worldwide cricket in their own country since an attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in 2009, forcing them to play their "home" series at neutral venues. "Overwhelming love and affection though", Sethi tweeted".

Amir, who missed Pakistan s eight-wicket semi-final win over England with a back spasm, finished with three wickets for 16 runs in six overs.

"As a bowler and as a captain when that is happening ... sometimes you have to sit and say "the guy is good enough on the day to tackle anything".

Indian all-rounder, Hardik Pandya, gave a brief flicker of hope to the Blue Shirts, handily knocking 76 runs off 43 balls.

The former captains were of the view that success in the Champions Trophy widely speaks about the rise of cricket in Pakistan despite the fact that foreign teams are not visiting the country for nearly one decade.

It all left India needing to set new tournament record for a team batting second to win if they were to retain the title they won in England four years ago. "Well played, deserved winners and a great result for Pakistan cricket", former Indian opener Virender Sehwag said.

Leg-spinner Shadab took a wicket with his sixth ball when Yuvraj Singh (22) was lbw, although it needed a Pakistan review of an original not out decision.

"They were more intense and passionate today, they deserved to win".

Having lost its first match against long-standing rival India by 124 runs, Pakistan completed an extraordinary turnaround to reach the final, where they beat the same opponents by 180 runs. Some Pakistan supporters even mocked India captain Virat Kohli along with a few other players, who didn't respond to the comments. "We played very well and know we have won the final", Ahmed said.

He removed India's top three batsmen-Rohit Sharma (0), Shikhar Dhawan (21) and Kohli (5). "The way they turned things around speaks volumes for the talent they have in their side", Kohli said.

"We can be very proud of that as a unit and we leave here with our heads held high because we understand the kind of expectations and pressures we face as a team". "We played like we had nothing to lose, now we are champions", said Sarfraz.

Overall Pakistan had been the better side in every respect: batting better, fielding better and bowling better. Kohli only had praise for the 23-year-old who stood up against the fierce Pakistani bowlers and clobbered them all around the park - something none of the top order batsmen could do.
