Pakistan army mocks India after Champions Trophy victory

Pakistan army mocks India after Champions Trophy victory

The turnaround began when Lady Luck shined down on Pakistan and the green-shirts were able to secure a win against South Africa through the DL method.

Chasing a challenging total of 339 runs, India was bowled out for 158 runs in 33.3 overs.

Naturally, the newspapers of Pakistan went on the celebration mode. The last time Pakistan won a major 50-over ICC tournament was also during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month, when Imran Khan led his team over England in the 1992 final at Melbourne, Australia. Fakhar Zaman's innings and Hassan Ali's spell with the ball played crucial roles in the win. That skill is one that will make him a truly potent force as long as he stays fit. In the 26th over when Pandya called for a single and started running, Jadeja took a couple of steps ahead only to go back to the crease, thereby costing Pandya his wicket.

After India had won the toss, Fakhar, on three, was caught by wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni off a Jasprit Bumrah no-ball and the 27-year-old left-hander took full advantage to make his first global century.

As Pakistan beat India in the recently concluded Champions Trophy final in London, some television sets were broken in India, while the situation was quite different in Kashmir.

He shared a fluent century opening partnership with Azhar Ali (59), the pair unleashing a barrage of crisp attacking strokes all around a sun-kissed ground. We trusted the players.




"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". As Virender Sehwag and others were confident of their team's win even before the match and were already tweeting about it being Father's day and that Pakistan being the son will give their father a gift.

Lauding Pakistani batsmen, the great cricketer said that they played every ball the way, it deserved.

The night ended on a sombre mood for Indian sports fans with majority of the people disheartened after the cricket team's loss but they still had something to cheer for in the hockey team's victory.

"So you can only do so much, as I said, as a bowler and as a captain when that is happening, Kohli did sound a tad helpless trying to explain Zamans performance".

"Pakistan had to earn their win and they made us make mistakes".

Reflecting on their response to the adversity of their initial setback against India two weeks ago, and the culmination of their hard work, he said: "It sort of feels surreal really".
