Sarfraz hopes Champions Trophy win will bring global cricket to Pak

The News, in a piece headlined "Champions", said: "When Pakistan was thrashed by India in its opening match of the Champions Trophy, the obituaries were already being written".

"When we arrived here, we were number eight [in the ICC one-day global rankings], and now we are the champions".

However after being set 339 to win, India slumped to 158 all out as Hasan Ali claimed three for 19 to spark wild celebrations and an unlikely win following a poor start to the competition.

"That's why the coach wants the national selectors to pick more youngsters from the domestic circuit so that Pakistan have a bigger pool of players for World Cup 2019", the source said.Arthur has been buoyed up by the fact that nearly all of the new faces tried by Pakistan in the last one year or so have made their presence felt at the worldwide level.

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". Some Pakistan supporters even mocked India captain Virat Kohli along with a few other players, who didn't respond to the comments.

"I think this is something we wanted to do because the millions of people at home were waiting for this". "All the credit goes to the entire team, they all worked really hard", the Pakistan captain said.

"It was about the team doing well and we have done well to be in the final", Kohli said. We dusted ourselves off after the defeat to India at Edgbaston and came back superbly. The whole group came together and kept believing and that was a superb thing. We knew we were better than that. "It has been a remarkable achievement", said Arthur.

"They made us make those mistakes with the way they were bowling, creating that pressure", Kohli told reporters.

He added, "Unbelievable moment and keep supporting again Pakistan". "I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an wonderful tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have".

"We can be very proud of that as a unit and we leave here with our heads held high because we understand the kind of expectations and pressures we face as a team".
