These numbers indicate their utter dominance in the two biggest games of the tournament, against two of the toughest opponents: they beat England by eight wickets with 77 balls to spare in the semi-finals, and thrashed India by 180 runs in the final.

Pakistan, ranked eight in the tournament, had opened the group stage campaign with a huge loss of 124 runs via Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method.

Often we find fans from either side mixing a game of cricket with political instability and tension the two nations share. We would like to congratulate Pakistan for their great victory. "This is the least we could do".

It was Pakistan's first global 50-over title since the 1992 World Cup and a sweet moment for a team who have been unable to host worldwide cricket in recent years due to security concerns.

The Pakistan Observer called the team not just champions, but "legendary champions". It got inexorably out of hands for Virat Kohli's side once Mohammad Amir dealt lethal blows in his first two overs.

With their inability to host top worldwide sides on home soil due to security concerns and a spot-fixing controversy blighting their domestic T20 league, Sunday's win provided the country's cricket fans with some much-needed cheer.

India head into Sunday's Final as the rightful favourites to reclaim the ICC Champions Trophy against their traditional rivals. As Virat Kohli said in the post-match conference, it was just the probing, aggressive bowling display by Pakistan that did the Indian batting in.

"It's a very important boost for us to win this". No matter the conditions, you have to play good cricket. Credit goes to my batsmen, my bowlers and the team management.

From "no-hopers" at the start to champions in the end, former captain Shahid Afridi feels Pakistan have become serious title contenders for the 2019 ODI World Cup with their stunning Champions Trophy triumph. Mohammad Amir & Hassan Ali will be key if Pakistan manages the win.

India captain Kohli conceded Pakistan were worthy winners and, while he claimed to be proud of his players, his admission that the new champions played with more passion was a damning indictment.

Babar Azam (46) was then joined by Shoaib Malik (12) but the veteran couldn't help himself when Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave him some wide filth outside off and he holed out to deep extra cover to leave Pakistan 247/3 and threatened to derail their effort.

"We don't take any opposition for granted and we are looking to play some great cricket here".
