Sarfraz hopes Champions Trophy win will bring global cricket to Pak

20 Juin 2017

India captain Virat Kohli says Fakhar Zaman s cavalier approach was hard to counter as 80 percent of his "high risk shots" came off well during the Champions Trophy final against Paksitan, here today.

The Men in Blue have won all three of their previous matches against Pakistan in the knockout stages of International Cricket Council (ICC) tournaments to date and it is but obvious that they would start going into the finals as favourites.

Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) of 1973 empowers a magistrate to prohibit an assembly of more than four people in an area.

Kohli's dismissal for five following a golden run in the tournament prompted gloom among the India supporters.

India captain Kohli conceded Pakistan were worthy winners and, while he claimed to be proud of his players, his admission that the new champions played with more passion was a damning indictment.

Arthur, like others, also want that cricket loving fans in Pakistan, get to see their heroes play global matches. Farhan Akhtar tweeted, "Yaar. the Hardik run out was heartbreaking. well played man" and Shashi Tharoor said, "Don't understand why @imjadeja didn't sacrifice his wicket when he saw @hardikpandya7 at his end".

"Small margins can be massive but we've only lost a game of cricket, we need to move forward and learn from our mistakes".

This change in mindset of fans will boost the morale of our players and motivate them to do better.

"The joyous scenes reminded me of our World T20 win in 2009 where I was lucky to play a match-winning role for my team in the semi-final and final", he wrote.

"Cricket is not about doing well in every game that you play", reasoned India captain Kohli in his post-match news conference. We can see MS Dhoni right behind Shami taking back him into the dressing room to stop the heated interaction. "They have been brilliant, and my fellow coaching staff and management team have been fantastic, as well", a sense of satisfaction was palpable in his voice.

Pakistan piled up an impressive 338 for four after being put in to bat and India's much-vaunted top order of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli were blown away by an inspired opening burst by Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir.

Pakistan pacer Hassan Ali, who was named Player of the Tournament after finishing with 13 wickets including hauls of 3/19 in the final and 3/35 against England, has gained 12 positions to reach the No.7 position.

And that's why, the 28-year-old India skipper said he was hoping for a very well contested Champions trophy final. Zimbabwe is the only nation to have toured Pakistan two years ago.
