The platform was there.

Latif, however, praised the sporting spirit of Indian captain, Virat Kohli. At 54 for five, he had all the freedom to go out all guns blazing and hit the ball hard. "Just an incredible performance by Pakistan".

"I am just happy to see that this victory has been possible with a young and inexperienced side and a new captain". "I was hoping a team in green and gold would win". It feels like deja'vu after winning the 1992 WCup.

Ten years later, here we are.

The Indian innings was off to a disastrous start with Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir producing a fiery opening spell. The wickets of Rohit Sharma and Kohli in the first and third overs were the setbacks from which India could not recover. It was all about momentum. Younis, Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Yousuf all tried their hands at captaining the side with Younis leading the team to the 2009 World T20 triumph.

"We can't take anyone lightly but they were more intense and passionate on the day". The Pakistan win was given once India let them post a total 338 for four. "It will only boost the morale of Indian squad as this is not the end of the world and the team India would definitely make a comeback", Mehboob said. Its also expanding now and more teams are coming.

Even after the special convoy escorting Sarfraz Ahmed from the airport got within sight of his Karachi home in the early hours of the morning, it took the Pakistan captain almost a half-hour to get from the vehicle to his house as a throng of adoring cricket fans clamored for photographs. So I thought I have to calm myself and this is what I did. And this performance was exceptional. ICC event win - nothing gets bigger than this.

"He is the son of Sindh province and we are here to accord him warm welcome", Zubair said.

"We showed great character". Plus our fielding is fantastic.

The decline cost Azhar Ali the captaincy and Sarfraz Ahmed, the Twenty20 skipper, was elevated to the role in February. We've got the monkey off our back in terms of qualifying. The whole group came together and kept believing and that was a superb thing. It changed the course of the game for one more time. "It has been a remarkable achievement", said Arthur. We have to keep this momentum going. Worldwide cricket has been missing a team like this current side under Sarfraz and we can only hope that they continue to entertain like this for a long time to come. We have got two years until 2019. Azam, who was previously supporting Zaman, now took the charge and played freely.

No one expected us to play Bangladesh in the semifinals. While cricket continues to rule the heart of Indians, soon after India's defeat, displeased Indian fans took to the streets to express their anger across India and in Karnataka, too.

Hasan Ali: I wasn't in the side previous year but I relied on hard work and self belief. Pakistan played like winners and now are champions of the world. Zaman (114), playing his first ODI against India, fourth in his career, went after the bowlers trying to play the inside-out shots.

"Fakhar, Shadab, Hasan. they all did well and we are heading toward right direction", he said.

"This was a young team", Sarfraz said.

"I think it's a very proud moment for me, my team and my country".

President Mamnoon Hussain, former Pakistan captain turned politician Imran Khan, Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the Chief Justice of Pakistan were among those who appreciated the huge win for Pakistan cricket.
