5 talking points from Pakistan's miracle win

The previous ICC World T20s have been held in South Africa, England, West Indies, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India

Azhar played his part, outscoring his aggressive partner for much of his half century, before a run out threatened to derail Pakistan's great start.

"When players like that get going on their day, it becomes real hard to stop them because I think 80 per cent of his shots were high-risk and they were all coming off", said Kohli. The 2015 World Cup-2017 Champions Trophy period saw both Jadeja's and Ashwin's economy rates rise, though this was partly because economy-rates rose in general during that period. Khan told his team could have chased the total of 339 if they wouldn't have lost early wickets, which neither happened by chance nor brilliant bowling from pacer Mohammad Amir.

On the other hand, youths in Kashmir burst into rapture at Pakistan's victory in the one-sided cricket final of the ICC Champions Trophy.

From Fakhar Zaman to Hassan Ali and Shadab Khan, Pakistan has shown the world its rich talent and pedigree.

An inspired Pakistan hammered a blundering India by 180 runs to lift the ICC Champions Trophy, riding on a scintillating hundred from rookie opener Fakhar Zaman and a sensational bowling spell from Mohammad Amir.

This is the second match between the sub-continent rivals at this year's tournament, with India having thrashed Pakistan in their opening group outing.


"I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an unbelievable tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have", he said.

Hafeez, who made an unbeaten 57 off 37 balls, said the win was for the Pakistan public. Agreed, not all days are alike when you can win but a team is at least expected to play a normal cricketing game and put up some resistance. Amir's arrangement means he will play County Championship fixtures for the current Division One leaders, as well as NatWest T20 Blast matches.

Hafeez, like Azhar Ali was a completely different player with a totally different outlook hitting boundaries nearly at will lifting his strike rate to a remarkable 154.05. The 27-year-old never looked back from then on and went on punishing Indian bowlers for Bumrah's folly. "Huge congratulations need to go to Mickey Arthur, Sarfraz Ahmed, the support staff and players for showing great character and turning the team's fortunes around".

"We have no hesitation or shame to admit we didn't play our best game. It seems players are not convinced and they don't want it to change", he said.

"The fact is that World T20s do attract a lot of interest, they generate significant revenue for the television companies, but most importantly from our point of view they provide us with an opportunity to give more opportunities to more teams".
