Posted June 25, 2017

Meanwhile, there was a sombre mood among India fans - in Delhi some of them left screenings of the match early after screaming anti-Pakistan slogans, despite the team being praised for being gracious in defeat.

In the past, cricket fans have been arrested in both India and Pakistan for supporting rival teams or players. Each member deserved to be applauded for bringing glory to Pakistan.

"This victory means a lot to Pakistan cricket because we went through a pretty hard phase over the past several years". "We've got the monkey off our back in terms of qualifying".

This was Pakistan's maiden Champions Trophy silverware, and they now have all the three ICC trophies; the ODI World Cup from 1992, T20 World Cup from 2009 and now the Champions Trophy in 2017.

It is a similarity between two of its biggest events that has led to a rethink, while Richardson expressed his hope that future World Twenty20s could become more inclusive with up to 20 nations invited to participate. Currently, Pakistan hockey team had only won their last group match against Scotland by 3-1in the World Cup Hockey qualifiers while in the first match Netherlands defeated Pakistan by 4-0.

"But to achieve our goal, all of us have to work extra hard and not just sit on our laurels".

"The Champions Trophy has also been great for the younger players in our squad".

Pakistan was cruising at 0-128 in the 23 over with Azhar on 59, when he was involved in a farcical mix-up with opening partner Fakhar Zaman. Famous Pakistan builder Riaz Malik has also promised one million rupees each besides giving them plots of land. "We had made a decision to shift Pakistan Hockey Federation's (PHF) headquarter in Islamabad as to provide the players with all sort of best facilities here", he said.

"I am shocked... we thought we would have them for dinner, but it has turned the other way", Amit Sharma told news agency AFP at Delhi's Connaught Place.
