Champions Trophy Final: 'Passionate' Pakistan outplayed us, says Virat Kohli

Champions Trophy Final: 'Passionate' Pakistan outplayed us, says Virat Kohli”

Their answer to Virat Kohli has never developed into anything more than Mohammad Kaif let alone Kohli, he is still selected in the squad - oh wait - he has failed a fitness test and is flying back home.

Meanwhile, Pakistan would consider it as a golden opportunity to avenge their first match defeat against India and clinch their maiden title.

"For years now, Pakistan is playing home matches in Dubai". Aamir bowled brilliantly all tournament, and so did Junaid, Shadab, Imad, Hasan, they all bowled very well. Oh wait, Pakistan have suffered another blow, their most experienced fast bowler has been ruled out of the tournament due to an injury. Pakistan were 183 for one in 30.1 overs at that stage.

- Hasan Ali, with three wickets, leads a brilliant bowling display as bottom-ranked Pakistan hold the top-ranked Proteas to 219.

It was in twenty third over when Pakistan lost their wicket as a result of misunderstanding between Azhar and Fakhar. "Hopefully this win will boost up Pakistan cricket".

Tournament favorites, England, are next up, they should win this match comfortable. Pakistan storm past England without breaking a sweat, England were supposed to do this to Pakistan not the other way around. I would like to congratulate all the Pakistani people all over the world. Fakhar makes a confident 31 on ODI debut and Pakistan are well ahead of where they need to be, at 119 for three off 27 overs, when rain sees them win under the Duckworth/Lewis rule. The last 10 yielded 91 runs for Pakistan as India were left with a daunting task.

Kohli, the world's top-ranked one-day batsman, had been dropped off the previous delivery in the slips and the India fans looked shell-shocked as he trudged off.

Q. Just wanted to ask, what have you been telling the youngsters in the team through the campaign, Hassan Ali is obviously a few ODIs old, Fakhar Zaman also, so what have you personally been telling the youngsters on the team coming into the campaign for such a big tournament, especially after that loss?

Leg spinner Shadab Khan trapped Yuvraj Singh right in front but the umpire denied Pakistan's appeal.

Down in the dumps chasing a modest 237, Sarfraz smashed an unbeaten 61 which helped Pakistan recover from 137/6 to an incredible three-wicket victory. "Credit to the boys for the way they played, controlled their aggression". We've got a group of young players who are fantastic. They have been waiting for this for a long, long time. A year ago I wasn't in the side but I worked hard and believed in myself, and thankfully gave a good performance.

"It was disappointing. Congos to Pakistan. But it is, you know, it really is", a smiling Arthur said. In Sarfraz, they have a leader who can relate to them, he is just as exuberant as them.

The focus after tomorrow is certainly going to be on the 2019 World Cup. It feels like deja'vu after winning the 1992 WCup. 11 years later, Sarfraz has won the ICC Champions trophy, he is here to stay, these young kids from Pakistan are here to stay; they make their own miracles.
