We haven't won final, just lost a game of cricket: Kohli

We haven't won final, just lost a game of cricket: Kohli”

"Some people in Mohad village raised slogans in favour of Pakistan and also burst crackers on Sunday night after Pakistan defeated India in the finals of the Champions Trophy", Sanjay Pathak, officer in-charge of Shahpur police station, told IANS.

But, after last night's defeat, despite it was a humiliating loss by a mammoth 180 runs, rarely a hate message was seen against Team India. Outplayed and out of sorts, Pakistan looked like a side unable to adapt to the demands of modern limited overs cricket.

Pakistan, entering the tournament ranked eighth out of the eight teams in the tournament, stunned arch-rivals India on Sunday to win the 2017 International Cricket Council Champions Trophy final by 180 runs at Kia Oval in London, England.

"It's a great team effort. I think we played very well and that's why we won".

"We showed great character".

Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day global hundred laid the foundations for Pakistan's formidable total of 338-4.

Rohit Sharma (0), Shikhar Dhawan (21) and Virat Kohli (5) were snuffed out by Amir in a devastating first spell with three brilliant deliveries.

"After the first game I said there is a big gap between Ind & Pak these days". But far from his lack of experience counting against him, or Pakistan's in ICC finals - Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Amir the only holdovers from their last, the 2009 World T20 win on English soil - it was the most decisive factor in their success.

As the second biggest tournament of ICC's curtain was raised, Australia, England, and South Africa were the teams expected to reach the final with fan favourite India to be considered too (for their formidable batting line-up and consistent performance).

Provincial governor Mohammad Zubair said he was proud of "son of Sindh" Ahmed and hoped the victory will ignite more energy into youngsters playing the sport.

"That was an aberration".

Talking to media after the team outclassed India, skipper Sarfraz said that the perception about Pakistan team should be changed. Credit goes to my boys.

For all these players, the Champions Trophy is turning out to be a bonanza in financial terms.

Overall, the pitch seemed to have nothing to offer to the bowlers, and became batting-friendly.

Gilchrist backed Australian captain Steve Smith despite his team's early exit in the Champions Trophy.

"I want to congratulate Pakistan first, they had an awesome tournament". The way they turned things around speaks volumes of the talent they have in their side.

He added: "The fact is that World T20s do attract a lot of interest, they generate significant revenue for the television companies, but most importantly from our point of view they provide us with an opportunity to give more opportunities to more teams".

"Just before I flew out of Perth yesterday, I saw the toss happening".

"The extras are something that's never a good feeling to concede so many".

This wonder boy played his first ICC tournament and went on to score more and more runs beautifully in the four games that he played.
