Sublime Fakhar leads Pakistan to 338-4 in ICC final

Sublime Fakhar leads Pakistan to 338-4 in ICC final

Hasan Ali drew inspiration from his fellow fast bowler to take three wickets and, supported by tigerish fielding which has not always been a feature of Pakistan cricket teams, they bowled out India for 158 to win the trophy for the first time.

"It's a great team effort".

Pakistan, due to security reasons, currently can't host worldwide cricket, but is now the ICC Champions Trophy holder, a feat that has far-reaching implications.

Dhaka: An Indian cricket fan from Jamalpur in Bangladesh has committed suicide after his favourite teams crushing defeat to Pakistan in the 2017 Champions Trophy, a media report said.

Virat Kohli said Pakistani players were more intense and passionate in the final which also helped them outplay the India team in every department of the game.

Amir bowled Pakistan to a shock victory over India in the Champions Trophy Final at The Kia Oval yesterday - less than five miles from his darkest moment as a sportsman. "I have never tried my hand in it but they are pretty good, so they will be fine", Kohli said.

Zaman scored his maiden century after he was handed a reprieve earlier in the innings when Jasprit Bumrah had him caught behind off a no ball while Amir picked the in-form Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Kohli inside the first powerplay to dent India's hopes. Kohli also said he backed his boys to chase in the title clash.

Arthur continued: "We want to be a little more consistent as a team".

"Not just today, not just tomorrow, this day will be remembered in Pakistan for years to come", said a beaming Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed as he made a passionate plea to other nations to play worldwide cricket in their country.

"Hopefully this win, everyone will remember, not just for today, not just for tomorrow, but for a very long, long time", added the wicket-keeper/batsman.

"We're happy with the brand of cricket we're playing".

"They had an unbelievable tournament".

Pakistan pacer Hassan Ali, who was named Player of the Tournament after finishing with 13 wickets including hauls of 3/19 in the final and 3/35 against England, has gained 12 positions to reach the No.7 position. Alongside a photo of the hockey team, the paper featured an image of Kidambi Srikanth, who won the Indonesia Superseries Premier badminton tournament earlier in the day.

"The 1992 World Cup win gave us a new generation of match winners and this win ranks very close to that".
