Sarfraz Ahmed named captain of ICC Champions Trophy XI

The ICC named Sarfraz Ahmed as the captain of the team.

Tennis star Sania Mirza has congratulated both the countries for their victories in cricket and hockey games as Pakistan romped home to a 180-run victory over India in Champions Trophy final to claim the glittering silverware for the first time.

Having helped to lift Pakistan from the brink of an embarrassing group-stage exit to their first major ODI trophy in 25 years, Arthur was keen to put the focus on a previously unheralded group of players who have beaten the world No.1, the tournament favourites and the defending champions in less than a fortnight.

Former Australia wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist has said India were undone by a Pakistan team that got everything right. Global cricket has been suspended in Pakistan since a failed terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009, forcing Pakistan to play its worldwide games in the United Arab Emirates.

Earlier in first innings, Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day global hundred was the cornerstone of Pakistan's 338 for four as they set title-holders and arch-rivals India a stiff chase to win the Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday.

Believed to Have Died in London High-Rise Fire
Providing an update on the situation Monday morning, police said that the death toll may rise further. Cundy said the death toll may still change, but not as significantly as it has in recent days.

Pakistan posted 338 runs for the loss of four wickets in 50 overs and then went ahead to bowl out the neighbours for 158 runs in 3.

Earlier, Mohammad Amir tore apart the famed Indian top three, shaking India to the core as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan headed back to the pavilion.

From there on, the Pakistani bowlers cleaned up the tail and eventually won the match.

"You learn with every cricket game that you play", Kohli said.

"India couldn't even make half of the score, whole team booked in 30.3 overs", the Daily Jang said.

Real Madrid hailed as "Masters of the Universe" after crushing Juve
We haven't just got a great 11, we have a great squad, so if any injuries come along there are other people who can do a job. I want to continue adding things to my game, to my style. "(Winning in Cardiff ) was a special occasion for me.

In India nearly all print media went easy on Kohli and his team, crediting Pakistan's performance though the front-page of the Hindustan Times screamed "Obliterated at the Oval: India humiliated by Pak". The opening match of the Champions Trophy 2017 saw England chase down 306 against Bangladesh while Sri Lanka overhauled India's 321 at the Oval, the highest total ever chased in the Champions Trophy.

This is India, though, and Pakistan will have to banish the demons of defeats past: in the last six matches in ICC events, it is India which has triumphed.

"Hopefully this win will boost up Pakistan cricket and hopefully all playing nations are coming to Pakistan". "We all know their struggles of not getting any worldwide cricket back home", Gilchrist told reporters in New Delhi. They hate to play it like the sport that it is and they behave as if it is a war.

After three years on the outer at worldwide level, Arthur took the reins at Pakistan a little more than 12 months ago and helped to guide them to the world No.1 Test ranking just four months later.

Something similar may be football matches between Germany and the Netherlands, or Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, but despite the furor associated with these games, they are never as "hostile" as Indian-Pakistani cricket matches.
