"Some teams might not have the best starts and come back amazingly, which Pakistan have done", Kohli said on the eve of the much-anticipated, high octane clash.

Fans welcomed their heroes with chants of "Pakistan Zindabad" and showered petals upon the cricketers' cavalcade when they headed towards their respective houses.

Pakistan had come into the tournament as the lowest-ranked team and lost heavily to India in their opening group match but they beat South Africa and Sri Lanka to make the semi-finals where they knocked out hosts England.

"We just had to keep believing. they kept on believing, trusting their roles (and) trusting the gameplan that "Saffy" (Sarfraz) and I had set up". The way we showed character, this is for the nation.

Pakistan made 338 for four, with Fakhar Zaman's 114 - the left-handed opener's maiden ODI hundred - the cornerstone.

Chasing 339, India's top-order were undone by some brilliant bowling from Mohammad Amir who dismissed the in-form trio of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Shikhar Dhawan.

India, looking to retain the Champions Trophy, went down without a fight as they collapsed to 158 all out and Amir felt his spell was crucial.

"(We won) thanks to Allah and the prayers of the whole nation", said Ahmed amidst loud cheers of "Long Live Sarfraz".

For a country that has not played global cricket at home against any top cricketing nation, the Champions Trophy triumph was necessary to "identify their heroes", feels Pakistan's chief coach Mickey Arthur.


Mohammad Amir's average against Rohit Sharma in worldwide matches. We knew we'd prepared well, we knew that game was an aberration, we knew we were better than that.

"That was an aberration".

Director of England cricket Strauss told Sky Sports News HQ: "We'd earmarked it as an opportunity for us but I think it's worth saying this is the halfway point for us and the big focus is the 2019 World Cup".

India captain Virat Kohli could do little more than praise an opponent who did everything right on the day, reported the ICC.

"So that's fantastic. But the credit goes to the players".

The player of the match was, quite correctly, awarded to Pakistani batsman, Fakhar Zaman.

The ICC side was selected by a panel that included former captains Michael Atherton (England), Sourav Ganguly (India) and Ramiz Raja (Pakistan) as well as the Editor of Wisden, Lawrence Booth, and AFP cricket reporter Julian Guyer, with the ICC's general manager of cricket, Geoff Allardice, the chairman. "I am confident that the faith and trust of the Pakistan cricket team will be strengthened with this performance of the side".

Players begin to return separately to their hometowns after unavailability of tickets barred them from boarding a flight together.

"Everyone desires composure, not just me".
