Champions Trophy triumph can boost Pakistan on and off field - Sarfraz Ahmed

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed believes his side?s crushing victory over India in the Champions Trophy final would serve as a catalyst to bring back global cricket back home. Hopefully, this win, everyone will remember not [just] today or tomorrow, but for a very long time.When we arrived here, we were ranked 8th, and now, we are the champions.

Kohli said Pakistani players were more intense and passionate in the final which also helped them outplay the India team in every department of the game.

In reply, India were all out for 158 runs in 30.3 overs. Good cricket, positive cricket, and we will win.

"We scored some great goals and when we score the type of goals that we did today, that is what makes a coach happy".

That was in response to a spate of recent ballistic missile tests which violate United Nations sanctions. Analysts say the latest test appeared to be aimed at keeping up pressures on Moon to wrest concessions.

Nicknamed "soldier" by his team-mates - he was once a sailor in the Pakistan navy - Fakhar, might have been out on three when caught behind but Jasprit Bumrah was denied a wicket by a no-ball after replays showed the pace bowler had over-stepped. Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed will also look to use his team's bowling strength to do the damage against an in-form Indian batting line-up.

"All credit goes to my bowlers, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Shadab, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, they bowled really well".

Amir (three wickets for 16 runs), still winning his sport over again after his criminal role in the 2010 spot-fixing saga enacted seven years ago and just a handful of miles away at Lord's, then reduced India to 33 for three - a perilous situation from which the overwhelming favourites were unable to recover, despite some astounding hitting from number seven Hardik Pandya (76).

Pandya scripted the fastest half-century in a world One-Day International (ODI) final, reaching the landmark in 32 deliveries with three consecutive sixes off leg-spinner Shadab Khan. We have a young team and credit to my boys.

"We played like we had nothing to lose, now we are champions". My advice is to play like this.

"Names of bigger bookies who were helping them have come out during interrogation and we are investigating the matter", Verma said.

Fakhar hit 12 fours and three sixes before skying a catch off Hardik Pandya but Pakistan had the flawless platform to make the highest total in a Champions Trophy final.
