Pakistan deserved to win Champions Trophy 2017: Virat Kohli

Afridi also pointed out Pakistan had just about made it into the qualification spots for the Champions Trophy. But just when it seemed that he was blazing towards a first worldwide century, he was run out after a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja.

Mohammad Amir then reduced India to 33 for three by dismissing their much-vaunted top three, with Rohit Sharma out for a duck and opposing skipper Virat Kohli, the world's top-ranked ODI batsman, falling for just five.

Amir and Hasan took three wickets apiece, while Shadab snapped up two and Junaid Khan claimed one.

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.

While the final of the ICC's secondary 50-over competition attracted an estimated televised audience of hundreds of millions as Pakistan crushed India at The Oval, the governing body is keen to capitalise on the exponential rise of its shortest format.

After man of the match Fakhar finished on 114, Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Amir ripped the heart out of the India batting line-up with the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. This is what happens in sport. Throughout the tournament, Pakistan's strength has been its bowling unit, spearheaded by Hassan Ali who today walked away with the Golden Ball, having taken 13 wickets.

"Small margins can be massive but we've only lost a game of cricket, we need to move forward and learn from our mistakes".


"We wanted to bowl first".

"The joyous scenes reminded me of our World T20 win in 2009 where I was lucky to play a match-winning role for my team in the semi-final and final", he wrote.

Banks, government and other organisations ran full-page advertisements congratulating the team for their historic win.

"Fakhar is a great impact player, he played like a champion batsman". So, you understand those dynamics as a team when, you know, things are not happening and you win a tournament like this.

"It's been an up and down ride for us but I'm so proud of the boys", Arthur said. "It has played as though it has nothing to lose, with a freedom to express its skills, which is commendable considering the situation it found itself in", Hussey, who has played 79 Tests and 185 ODIs for Australia amassing 6235 and 5442 runs respectively, added. Amir today. Hasan Ali throughout the tournament.

Hasan's mercurial rise has left many perplexed, including himself as he admits he never really thought he would emerge as the player of the tournament.
