Triumphant Pakistan have core to target further glory

ISLAMABAD-The 600 people of the Dawoodi bohra community were supposed to be gathering to have food together in a hall soon after breaking a 15 ½ -hour fast on Sunday.

Champions Trophy winning captain Sarfraz Ahmed and Rumman Raees Tuesday reached Pakistan with the trophy, and were warmly welcomed by Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair and Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhter at the Jinnah International Airport along with thousands of fans.

The victory was made even more remarkable when recent form is taken into consideration as Pakistan had also lost their last seven matches against India in ICC events before the final.

They came into the Champions Trophy as its lowest-ranked team, players missing through corruption scandals and poor fitness and somehow managed to go downhill from there, losing to India by 124 runs in a contest that it feels generous to describe as one-sided.

Jubilant fans spilled onto the streets dancing and distributing candies soon after Hasan Ali claimed the last Indian wicket in the 31st over.

Ahmed was ecstatic to be named as the captain and said, "To be appointed as captain of the Team of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, which includes some of the finest and most attractive cricketers of this generation, is the flawless icing on the cake".

The national media on Monday heaped praise on the team.

"There is no easy lesson to be drawn from Pakistan's triumph, no blueprint to be replicated; just a victory for talent, moments seized, and a team balanced and bonded with rare skill on the hoof".

India vs Pakistan, ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Final: Sunday belonged to Pakistan
After the South Africa game, the way we played, I think that was outstanding. "That was an aberration". If he plays like this, he will make his country proud.


"We're scheduled to have a World XI in Pakistan in September for three Twenty20 games".

"This was a young team", Sarfraz said.

Fans spilled onto the streets dancing and distributing candies soon after Hasan Ali claimed the last Indian wicket in the 31st over.

Just after Pakistan confirmed their place in the final following their facile win over host England in the first semi-final at Sophia Gardens on Wednesday, there were a lot of talks among the fans of the sub-continent arch-rivals as to whether they would get to see their beloved teams in the final.

The Daily Dawn noted Amir's three wickets in his opening spell, which included the key wicket of Virat Kohli, while describing Fakhar's century in only his fourth ODI as scintillating.

Hundreds of posts by Pakistani social media users used Father's Day to taunt India and express their superiority over Indians.

It was Pakistan's first global 50-over trophy since winning the 1992 World Cup.

Imran, who is now a seasoned politician, felt that the captain and the management should now build on the Champions Trophy win and start preparing for the 2019 World Cup.
