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

Following are five key moments that helped Pakistan win the Champions Trophy for the first time with a crushing 180-run victory over holders India at The Oval in London on Sunday.

After leaving India reeling on six for two following the dismissals of Sharma and Kohli, Amir's figures read 1.4 overs, four runs, two wickets.

"Today's win shows that no one is favourite when it comes to India v Pakistan match in global cricket", said a beaming Mohammad Ashraf, who distributed candies among people on a street in Rawalpindi.

Opening batsman Zaman struck 114 off 106 balls to receive the man of the match award as Pakistan thumped their rivals to claim their first Champions Trophy title. But also the fans not identifying with heroes because they just don't see global cricket. Virat Kohli also said that the green brigade can upset any team on their day.

"Furthermore, the terrorists can not win and cricket must not give up on Pakistan".

"I congratulated them [Pakistan] in the post-match [presentation]. They were more intense and more passionate", he said. Mixing attacking boundary options and smart strike rotation, he anchored the Pakistan total with the most important innings of his life. Pakistan made sure it did not turn out to be a costly mistake, though, as Amir dismissed him with the next ball. From Fakhar Zaman to Hassan Ali and Shadab Khan, Pakistan has shown the world its rich talent and pedigree. The team was ranked at a lowly No 8 in One Day Internationals and had already been defeated by India in an earlier game in the tournament.

Mohammad Amir best friend believes he will become one of cricket's greats after the Pakistan star achieved redemption on the biggest stage.

"Congratulations to Pakistan. The way they turned things around, it was unbelievable", Kohli said.

"Certainly, it's not about me and my career but it's about 15 unbelievable players in that dressing room, who have been absolutely fantastic for the past year".
