Sarfraz chosen skipper, 3 Indians in ICC team of tournament

No ICC World T20 In 2018 Edition In 2020

"We put India on the back foot and that certainly gave us the upper hand".

"We showed great character".

"Hopefully this win, everyone will remember - not today, not tomorrow, but for a very long, long time", said Sarfraz, the wicketkeeper who held the final catch that sparked wild celebrations. "This is the least we could do".

Along with the Indian trio, the jury comprising former English captain Michael Atherton, India's Sourav Ganguly and Ramiz Raja of Pakistan, among others, selected four Pakistanis, three Englishmen and one from Bangladesh with New Zealand's Kane Williamson as the 12th man.

The decline cost Azhar Ali the captaincy and Sarfraz Ahmed, the Twenty20 skipper, was elevated to the role in February. They were more intense and more passionate.

The tournament has seen Pakistan stage an fantastic turnaround - from suffering an embarrassing loss against India in the first match to inflicting a ruthless defeat on the same opponents in the final. After India's win over Pakistan in ICC T20 World Cup 2016, a journalist asked about what India to that they beat Pakistan in all the World Cup games as the score is till date 11-0.

In India nearly all print media went easy on Kohli and his team, crediting Pakistan's performance though the front-page of the Hindustan Times screamed "Obliterated at the Oval: India humiliated by Pak".

"It's a very important boost for us to win this". We knew the calibre of the players we had.

"I'm disappointed but I have a smile on my face because I'm proud of how my team has performed in the tournament overall". 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.

Amir also had Shikhar Dhawan (21) caught behind with a cross-seam delivery, teenage leg-spinner Shadab Khan trapped Yuvraj Singh (22) lbw on review and India were doomed when MS Dhoni (4) was caught on the pull for four off Hasan Ali - the tournament's leading wicket-taker.

Pakistan pace bowler Hassan Ali and rookie opener Fakhar Zaman are among those to make huge gains. "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.

The Indian team, considered to be one of the favourites to defend the title, have played to their potential in all the games till now, except the one against Sri Lanka, who surprised the Men in Blue in the group stage. We have to keep this momentum going.

The Telegraph also played the hockey win big, though it was also acknowledged Pakistan's win.

But some officials believe the eight-team event is now too similar to the World Cup which the ICC, controversially, has decided should be contested by just 10 teams from the 2019 event in England.
