It's a massive boost for Pakistan cricket: Mickey Arthur

Ever since a terror attack on Sri Lanka's team bus in 2009, no major cricketing nation has tourned Pakistan for a series and they had to play all their "home" matches outside the country.

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

Kohli only had praise for the 23-year-old who stood up against the fierce Pakistani bowlers and clobbered them all around the park - something none of the top order batsmen could do.

Bottom-ranked Pakistan produced a breathtaking display at London's Oval on Sunday to inflict a 180-run defeat upon arch rivals India, the title-holders, in the climax of a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day global nations.

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

A century from Fakhar Zaman helped Pakistan post 338-4 before a stunning opening burst Mohammad Amir set them on their way to a 180-run win that few would have believed possible even a few days ago. But also the fans not identifying with heroes because they just don't see worldwide cricket.

"India was a bit lacklustre in their chase once Kohli was dismissed".

"Pakistan was the underdog coming into the final but there was a feeling of destiny about it. Tournament play is all about peaking at the right time and after a poor start to the tournament, most pundits gave it no chance of winning", Hussey wrote in his column for ICC.

India captain Virat Kohli said: "Pakistan had a good performance, I congratulate them".

Dhawan and Hasan had won the Golden Bat and Golden Ball trophies respectively for finishing as the most successful batsman and bowler. He added, "we tried to show our best performance but were just outclassed by both batting and bowling of Pakistan side".

"They [Pakistan] deserved to win".

Pakistan was seeded eighth out of the eight teams in the tournament.

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. Messages like "Win or Loss, We're with You", "We still love our Indian players", "you were sublime throughout the tournament, this was just one off day" etc. were flooded on internet. "We can not take anyone lightly but they were more intense and passionate on the day", Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony, as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.

All the boys were confident and they contributed for the superb victory, he said and added that each one of them played for the team not for themselves individually.
