Pakistan deserved to win Champions Trophy 2017: Virat Kohli

Pakistan deserved to win Champions Trophy 2017: Virat Kohli

It was only on June 4 that India launched their Champions Trophy title defence with a thumping 124-run win over Pakistan at Edgbaston.

Dhawan and Hassan had already won the Golden Bat and the Gold Ball trophies for finishing as the most successful batsman and bowler, respectively.

Revelation and redemption helped Pakistan turn world cricket's order upside down as Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day global century and Mohammad Amir's brilliant new-ball spell underpinned a landslide 180-run win over India in the Champions
Trophy final.

Earlier in the day, the Uttarakhand Government has imposed Section 144 in Dehradun's Clock Tower and nearby area. In the end, they beat India by 180 runs to win the title.

"At the start they were bowling very well".

Arthur said: "I'm sure that the nation of Pakistan is really happy tonight - they deserve it. In Sarfraz (Ahmed), it now has a captain who can perhaps take the team to unprecedented glory in the years ahead", opined Afridi.

They piled up 338 for four, with Fakhar Zaman making a dashing 114 - the left-handed opener's maiden hundred in just his fourth match at this level since a debut in Pakistan's group-stage win over South Africa.

The 37-year-old further said that at present, Pakistan have got a team that has the ability to develop into one of the top three teams by the time the 2019 World Cup is played in England.

No team was expecting eight ranked Pakistan to bring such a laurel in the tournament, the legendary cricket said, adding that Pakistani youngsters proved it otherwise. "They have been brilliant, and my fellow coaching staff and management team have been fantastic, as well", a sense of satisfaction was palpable in his voice.

But after the victims were remembered with a minute's silence by a capacity crowd, fans at The Oval were soon engrossed by an extraordinary match.

Hasan Ali picked up the award for man of the tournament with his 13 wickets, including three in India's collapse, and the victory was cathartic for Amir in particular after he spent five years banned from the sport for his role in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal at Lord's. "You will have failures, and one team has to lose on the day, and today was our day to lose because the opposition played much better than us".

"Winning this tournament was a great morale booster for us", says Shah. "Its a young team, credit goes to my boys, this tournament can be a great booster for us".

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 and Mohammad Hafeez, who made an unbeaten 57 off 37 balls, said the win was for the Pakistan public.
