Pakistan media hails cricket team's 'stunning triumph' against India

Opener Tamim Iqbal is the only Bangladeshi cricketer who got berth in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 team announced by the International Cricket Council on Monday.

In the end, Pakistan's green army won the the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at the Oval on Sunday, beating the Men in Blue by 180 runs.

He didn't start the tournament on the best note as he conceded 70 runs and took just one wicket against India in Pakistan's first group stage match.

"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", Sarfraz said in an International Cricket Council statement.

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.

Pakistan has gained four points to move to 95 points as their wins over higher-ranked opponents in the tournament included the one in the final against India and an eight-wicket semi-final victory over England.

"Credit to everyone for standing up and showing that resilience and reaching the finals - (but) we were outplayed in all departments".

He celebrated with an extravagant twirl of his bat and kissed the turf as the Pakistan supporters sensed an unlikely win.

"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". Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali played shots all over the field, leaving the Indian team baffled. "Cricket is really about the performance of the batsmen as well as the bowlers", says Shah. He said, "The win shows that on Pakistan's day, they can defeat any team".

Cricket fans should be able to see more of Amir during the second half of the summer, as he is due to take up a deal with Essex.

All the boys were confident and they contributed for the superb victory, he said and added that each one of them played for the team not for themselves individually.

India captain Virat Kohli could do little more than praise an opponent who did everything right on the day, reported the ICC. Whether that gets changed, the consideration has been given to changing to two T20s in a four-year cycle which would mean swapping the Champions Trophy for a World T20.

After the initial response from Pakistani fans, Rishi made a decision to tone down his verbal attack but decided taunt Pakistani fans by bringing the issue of terrorism into the fray.
