Champions Trophy 2017: Glimpses of Pakistan's historic title win over India

"It's the final so it looks magnified to everyone, but we have won before, we have lost before, and we have always learnt things from all those games".

India were the lopsided favorites to win a record third Trophy in a record fourth final, but Pakistan blew away all predictions and expectations with a win of stunning ease.

He said,"Both our batsmen and bowlers did not perform well".

"Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli have been in tremendous form so I was looking for early wickets - and I did it", said Amir.

Pakistan then prove it's possible to bat on a used pitch, with Fakhar making his second fifty in as many matches, as they cruise to victory with 77 balls to spare. The way they turned things around, it was incredible.

"These two lads, plus (leg-spinner) Shadab Khan, are the future of Pakistan cricket and I sincerely hope they will only go in the upward direction from here". After the India match, I said to the boys that the tournament doesn't finish here. When we arrived here, we played like we had nothing to lose. From Fakhar Zaman to Hassan Ali and Shadab Khan, Pakistan has shown the world its rich talent and pedigree.

Amir took out all three of India's premier batsmen, bowled a maiden for figures of 6-2-16-3, then watched as his teammates mopped up.

"I think this is something we wanted to do because the millions of people at home were waiting for this".

India, losing finalists of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, have three players in the eleven picked by a jury which included three former national skippers, Sourav Ganguly, England's Mike Atherton and Rameez Raja of Pakistan.

It's described as one of the greatest rivalries in any sport, a match that stops the nations, but few expected the latest clash to end like this. "It has been an up and down ride".

"We can be very proud of that as a unit, we leave here with our heads held high because we understand the kind of expectations and pressures we face as a team". We knew we were better than that. They kept on believing. We wanted to be a lot more consistent. So to dust ourselves off and come back from that has been a remarkable achievement.

Afridi said that the current team can develop into one of the top three teams in the world by the 2019 World Cup.

"We wanted to bowl first". We are on the right track, everything is going right at the moment. I hit five or 10 balls and said to the coach, 'I don't want to practise today as I'm not feeling well'.

"He is working hard at it now and everyone can see the way he is bowling". In the 26th over when Pandya called for a single and started running, Jadeja took a couple of steps ahead only to go back to the crease, thereby costing Pandya his wicket.
