Virat Kohli named in Team of Champions Trophy, Pakistan's Sarfraz Ahmed skipper

Pakistan have won the Champions Trophy cricket final after beating their arch-rivals India by 180 runs at the Oval ground in Britain's capital, London. "Hopefully, we can post more than 300", Sarfraz said. After losing their opening game against India by 145 runs, they staged a remarkable turnaround, winning their next three games against Sri Lanka, South Africa and England, in the semifinal, quite convincingly.

Afridi said the celebration of yesterday's win in Pakistan was similar to the "unbridled joy" that the country's fans felt after the team's 1992 World Cup triumph and 2009 World T20 title win.

A number of former cricket captains on Monday said the historic victory of Pakistan cricket team has given a new identity to Pakistan cricket and re-established its status as one of the best cricket teams in the world.

He appreciated collective team efforts for the scintillating win, adding that Pakistan Young guns proved their mettle.

Actor cum director Kamal Rashid Khan, who is popular for his controversial remarks, alleged that the Indian captain Virat Kohli should be behind bars for "fixing the Champions Trophy final", after India received crushing defeat against Pakistan by 180 runs.

Thanks to powerfully and intelligently placed goals by Talwinder Singh, Harmanpreet Singh and Akashdeep Singh, each of whom got two, India completely routed the Pakistani side.

Then one ball after Kohli, the world s leading ODI batsman, was dropped at slip off Amir, the bowler had him caught at point by Shadab Khan.

"When players like that get going on their day, it becomes real hard to stop them because I think 80 per cent of his shots were high-risk and they were all coming off", said Kohli.

Apart from Pandya, no other Indian batsmen could play freely and were found struggling against a steaming Pakistan bowling attack.

"I'm really happy for all of Pakistan because they've been waiting for this for a very long time". India were at the receiving end at The Oval, just as they were in Johannesburg in 2003 in the World Cup final against Australia, when they lost by 125 runs, which was the previous highest margin (in terms of runs). When we arrived here, we played like we had nothing to lose. We wanted to be a lot more consistent.

This was Pakistan's maiden victory in the International Cricket Council Champions Trophy, one of the major global cricket tournaments conducted by the ICC.

"The desire is to give the cricket-starved Pakistani supporters the chance to see some of the world's finest players in live action". We knew we'd prepared well, we knew that game was an aberration, we knew we were better than that.
