"The Champions Trophy 2017 has been a memorable event and Pakistani fans will remember it for a very long time indeed".
He removed India's top three batsmen - Rohit Sharma (0), Shikhar Dhawan (21) and Kohli (5). Sri Lanka's early exit in the tournament caused them to swap places with Pakistan, as they toppled from No. 6 to No. 8 in the rankings.
India won the toss and chose to put Pakistan into bat - a decision that turned out to be a bad call.
Things didn't improve from there, with India all out for 158 in the 31 over, as Pakistan posted a massive 180 run victory.
Besides the Indian trio, the jury comprising the likes of former English captain Michael Atherton, India's Sourav Ganguly and Ramiz Raja of Pakistan, among others, selected four Pakistanis, three Englishmen and one from Bangladesh with New Zealand's Kane Williamson as the 12th man.
This is the second time Pakistan have won a global title in the 50-over format after their triumph at the 1992 World Cup.
The last instance of Pakistan openers adding more than 100 for the first wicket in two consecutive matches was in 2003.
"It's disappointing for us but I have a smile on my face because I'm very proud of how we've played in this tournament". But India, who put in a solid display of cricketing skills right through the tournament, would go home heads held high as the runner-up. "They were more intense and more passionate".
With its win, Pakistan, which came into the tournament ranked No. 8 in the world, has clinched its first Champions Trophy victory.
In Champions Trophy history 2013 has been the only edition in which the team batting first won the final.
"I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an awesome tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have". A guy hitting a good shot is something that after a stage it s not in your control as you have already bowled the ball but conceding extras is something that we can control as a team, he said.
