Mohammad Hafeez: Champions Trophy triumph is for all of Pakistan

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:49

Pakistan celebrated one of its biggest cricket victories on Sunday, defeating archrival India in the Champions Trophy final in London.

To avoid unnecessary and unwelcomed tensions, security personnel were deployed outside cricketer M. S. Dhoni's residence soon after the match.

The rookie opener cashed in on a lucky reprieve as Virat Kohli's decision to bowl first proved costly for India in ICC Champions Trophy final at Kennington Oval, London.

The now fit-again Amir removes all of India's top three as the champions slump to 33 for three in nine overs before being dismissed for just 158.

Pakistan used their maiden ICC Champions Trophy win to make a politically sensitive statement on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, the Uttarakhand government has imposed Section 144 in Dehradun's Clock Tower and nearby area.

Ashwin took one wicket in three games, and went for 70 in the final.

Sarfraz added: "When we arrived here, we were No 8 [in the world] and now we are the champions".

Like many people, Pathan also believes the Virat Kohli-led India's strength lies in its batting while Pakistan would bank on its superb bowling attack in the summit clash.

Sarfraz was right to highlight one of the hurdles his side have overcome in recent times, with the country starved of global cricket since the terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in 2009 at Lahore that has left them playing nearly exclusively on neutral grounds.

Mohammad Amir was hailed as Pakistan's man for the big occasion as he enjoyed redemption here seven years after his darkest moment.


"Fakhar is a great impact player, he played like a champion batsman today", Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said at the presentation ceremony.

"Sometimes, you have to sit and say, the guy is good enough on the day to tackle anything".

180 run-win for Pakistan, their biggest margin against India in ODIs batting first.

"This performance will be remembered long by both Indian and Pakistani fans Pakistan 've made this #CT17 truly memorable", Afridi said.

With his bat tucked under his arm, Fakhar begins the long walk back to the pavilion as the Indians celebrate grabbing their first wicket with only four Pakistan runs on the board.

Instead Amir wreaked havoc at the start of the reply, trapping Rohit Sharma lbw with his third ball and then inducing a leading edge from Kohli one ball after the skipper had been put down at slip by Azhar. I hope the Indian team win. "They motivated us, and it passed on to my boys".

Pakistani batsmen kept scoring runs at rapid pace and did not give Indian bowlers much chance to exert pressure on them.

"We knew we were better than what we showed in the first game against India".

Amir finished with three for 16 in six overs and Hasan Ali, who kick-started Pakistan's revival in their group-win over top-ranked South Africa, ended the match when he had Jasprit Bumrah caught by gleeful captain and wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed.

The omens weren't good at the toss as India made Pakistan bat first.
