Pakistan's media on Monday showered praise on the country's cricket team for their remarkable victory against archrivals India to clinch a maiden Champions Trophy title.

Fakhar Zaman neatly summed up the glorious chaos from which Pakistan seems to draw its cricketing strength, having begun the Champions Trophy as an uncapped drinks carrier and ended it with a maiden one-day worldwide hundred in just his fourth appearance, an average of 63 and a shiny winner's medal.

Having gone into Sunday's showpiece at The Oval as underdogs, Pakistan produced a sensational all-round performance to comprehensively defeat their great rivals by 180 runs and win the 50-over event for the first time.

Amir struck just three balls into India's reply when, after bowling two outswingers to Sharma, he had him lbw with a superb inswinger.

India had thrashed Pakistani side by 124 runs in their tournament opener at Edgbaston on June 4.

"We spoke about it in the team meeting", the South Africa-born coach said. As Virender Sehwag and others were confident of their team's win even before the match and were already tweeting about it being Father's day and that Pakistan being the son will give their father a gift.

The two spinners Ravichandran Ashwin (0/70 in 10 overs) and Ravindra Jadeja (0/67 in 8 overs) were then taken to the task with not a single wicket-taking delivery being bowled by the duo. Captain Sarfraz Ahmed said: "We are now the champions, so hopefully this win will boost Pakistan cricket".

"It says a lot about his personality. but what I do know is that Mohammad Amir is a big-match player", said Arthur.

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. He went for 18 in his first two overs as Pakistan helped themselves with a strong foundation. At the half way point of their innings, Pakistan were 134 for one with Zaman and Babar Azam in the middle.

"This is one victory that Pakistan fans will remember for long. We have no hesitation or shame to admit we didn't play our best game today", the Indian skipper added.

"We can't take anyone lightly but they were more intense and passionate on the day".
