Pakistan pays India back in same coin in Champions trophy final

Pakistan pays India back in same coin in Champions trophy final”

The caption of the photo read, 'Pakistan supporters burst crackers in downtown Srinagar to celebrate Pakistan cricket team's victory over India in the Champions Trophy final on Sunday'.

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

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 worldwide nations.

The final margin of 180 runs was the largest run victory by either Pakistan or India in head-to-head One day global matches, and the largest margin of defeat for a full ICC member in a Champions Trophy competition.

The 180-run loss was also the biggest margin of defeat in an International Cricket Council tournament's final match.

Only The Indian Express full-throatedly acknowledge that Pakistan had out-classed India on Sunday.

In reply, India were all out for 158 runs in 30.3 overs.

"Rarely have I seen Pakistan deliver such a clinical performance in a tournament decider and annihilating hot favourite India came as a pleasant surprise", he added.

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".

For a country that has not played worldwide cricket at home against any top cricketing nation, the Champions Trophy triumph was necessary to "identify their heroes", feels Pakistan's chief coach Mickey Arthur.

"They outplayed us, they were more intense and passionate on the day", he said.

"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".

India captain Virat Kohli, who was one of three batsmen dismissed in a devastating opening spell from Mohammad Amir, accepted his side had been a distant second best. They need victories like these.

And that's why, the 28-year-old India skipper said he was hoping for a very well contested Champions trophy final.

"(We won) thanks to Allah and the prayers of the whole nation", said Ahmed amidst loud cheers of "Long Live Sarfraz".

"With the ball, we could have had more wicket-taking opportunities".

They said Pak team outclassed India in the final with the extraordinary performance.

13 Wickets for Hasan Ali, which makes him the joint leading wicket-taker in any Champions Trophy tournament. Zimbabwe is the only nation to have toured Pakistan two years ago.
