Pakistan deserved to win Champions Trophy 2017: Virat Kohli

The outstanding Fakhar only made his one-day worldwide debut in the win over South Africa last week, but the 27-year-old had already made up for lost time with half-centuries against Sri Lanka and England.

Azhar also continued his fine form in the tournament, reaching his fifty off 61 balls before he was run out following a mix-up with his partner.

Sarfraz Ahmed's side suffered a shambolic 124-run loss to India on DLS in their first match a fortnight ago but closed the campaign a team transformed with their fourth win in a row. Once he got that reprieve, he took his time to get settled in before taking the attack to the Indian bowling, hitting as many as 12 fours and three sixes.

Indian media reported that soon after the end of the match against Pakistan, as many as eight policemen were deployed outside former Indian captain, Mahindra Singh Dhoni's house in Ranchi, India in fear of possible public retaliation.

Kohli accepted his side had been second best as he acknowledged Pakistan's "amazing tournament".

Sarfraz Ahmed hailed Pakistan's Champions Trophy victory as historic, hoping that it would encourage teams to tour the nation hereafter.

Captain Sarfraz hopes Champions Trophy triumph ends Pakistan's exile
This squad is built around exciting young talent and has an astute and passionate leader in Sarfraz. In a country where he was shamed, put behind bars for spot-fixing, Mohammad Amir redeemed himself.

Hasan Ali, the player of the tournament who kickstarted Pakistan's revival in their group-win over South Africa, then ended the match with 19.3 overs to spare.

In a video, uploaded by PK Tv Talk Shows on video sharing site You Tube titled "Amir Liaqat Blasting Message To SEHWAG, RISHI KAPOOR, VIRAT KOHLI Pakistan India Final 18 June 2017", anchor Amir Liaqat can be seen using improper language as he was "overexcited" after Pakistan register a mammoth victory over India. "We knew the calibre of players we had so we just had to keep believing".

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. But for a guy like Zaman, it becomes really hard to stop players like him, because I think 80 per cent of his shots were high- risk and they were all coming off.

"The extras are something that s never a good feeling to concede so many". One big partnership would have been the key to set it up nicely, but credit to the opposition. "I mean, 25 extras is a bit too much in a game like that, and that s something that we certainly need to take care of in the future".

"It's always a bad feeling when you get out or the batting doesn't work collectively and everyone feels bad about not having contributed to the team in any way", said the top-ranked one-day batsman.
