Arthur is confident the India "aberration" is now behind Pakistan, who've also lost all three of their previous knockout matches at International Cricket Council tournaments against their fiercest foes. Things are not happening and then you win a tournament like this.

"Pakistan has surprised everyone in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 after being ranked eighth coming into the tournament, and was well and truly beaten in its first match against India".

"We dusted ourselves off after the defeat to India at Edgbaston and came back superbly", added the South African after Pakistan s first major global tournament success since they won the 2009 World Twenty20 in England. "We need to move on and learn from our mistakes", Kohli said.

Donald Trump tweets his frustration with Russia investigation
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel following Comey's ouster in early May. Trump has not backed down from removing Mueller from the investigation , The New York Daily News reported .

Like any meeting of the two countries, the final will attract enormous interest in the cricket-mad sub-continent, but the experienced Kohli is treating that just as matter-of-factly.

"You have to make that sort of effort to stay in a good zone and a good mindset".

"We played like we had nothing to lose, now we are champions".

Lawyer says Trump isn't under investigation
President Donald Trump spent Father's Day weekend with his family at the presidential retreat Camp David in Maryland. I'm under no illusion that many Republican House and Senate members have any affection for, or loyalty to, Trump.

One of the key players during Pakistan's successful campaign at the 1992 World Cup, Sohail's most infamous moment on the cricket field was at the 1996 World Cup when he got into an altercation with India pacer Venkatesh Prasad before being bowled off the very next delivery. Let's hope we can put our "A" game again tomorrow, because if we can, and I said it before the England game, if we put our "A" game together and do the basics well, we can beat anybody. It wasn't the norm because we had prepared properly.

This is India'sforth Champions Trophy final, and Pakistan's first ever appearance in the same. So, out went Ahmed Shehzad, in came Fakhar Zaman - a 27-year-old left-hander with a List-A average in excess of 50, but yet to feature in an worldwide fifty-over game. Two of those have been in this tournament, one by England past year and the other was by India in 2007.

I want to thank the people of Pakistan. Later Mohammad Hafeez helped his side to post 300 plus total with 57 from 37 balls. There's only so much you can do as a bowler.Watching from the sidelines, you have to accept that, yes, this was a high-risk shot and I can accept getting hit for 4 on a short like that. We all know what happens behind the scenes.

Trump's Attorney: President To Address Comey Tapes This Week
What we know is what James Comey said, the last thing we know is when he testified just a couple weeks back. But a former federal prosecutor, Brad Simon, told The Post those assertions were "somewhat fanciful".

Babar Azam joined Fakhar, who lofted Ravindra Jadeja over long-on for six and got to three figures by sweeping Ravichandran Ashwin to the boundary.
