Pakistan's record-breaking 180-run win over arch-rivals and title-holders India in the Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday completed a remarkable turnaround for Sarfraz Ahmed's side in the space of just a few weeks.

Pakistan continue to hold their own in global cricket, even though they have not played a major worldwide team in their own country since March 2009, when the Sri Lanka team bus was attacked by terrorists while en route to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The Pakistan bowling corps engineered a spectacular collapse of India's top order, sending Rohit Sharma, Kohli and tournament high-scorer Shikhar Dhawan back to the dressing room within the first 15 overs. He can be heard saying, "when they say it we accept so when we say, why can't they?" "So, hopefully, this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all [cricket] playing nations will come to Pakistan", the Dawn quoted Sarfraz, as saying.

"Congratulations to Team Pakistan on their great performance in winning #CT17 And how wonderful to watch Fakhar's raw talent in action", Imran Khan, who led Pakistan to their only One Day International (ODI) World Cup triumph, tweeted after the win.

Kohli's dismissal for five following a golden run in the tournament prompted gloom among the India supporters.

With very little exposure to playing in lucrative Twenty20 league across the world and lack of worldwide cricket at home, the Champions Trophy win on Sunday was a remarkable feat for the young Pakistan side.

In Champions Trophy history 2013 has been the only edition in which the team batting first won the final.

Hasan Ali was responsible for taking the last Indian wicket, leaving the Blue Shirts with 158 runs from 30.3 overs.

India, the defending champions, were never in the game after falling to 33-3 and then 54-5 in their chase of Pakistan's 338-4.

So when he was dropped by Azhar Ali in the slips off Mohammad Amir in the third over, huge cheers erupted around the arena. "They were more intense and more passionate".

"You learn with every cricket game that you play", Kohli said.

"Congratulations to Pakistan. The way they turned things around, it was awesome", Kohli said.

Meanwhile, Pakistan would consider it as a golden opportunity to avenge their first match defeat against India and clinch their maiden title.
