After intense final, Pak-India players enjoy spirit of cricket

Lucia Summers | 20 June, 2017, 01:45

One of the main concerns is that it is too similar to the World Cup, which will now have 10 teams instead of 14. This is the story of Pakistan and their cricket team.

The South Asians arrived in Britain for the eight-team, one-day global tournament as the lowest-ranked side, packed with players still trying to find their feet at the highest level and given little hope of emerging victorious. The wickets of Rohit Sharma and Kohli in the first and third overs were the setbacks from which India could not recover. However, the turnaround was spectacular. "Harbhajan Singh has helped Pakistan a lot in the past".

Bangladesh ended the tournament on the seventh spot they started it on. Against England in Adelaide, they managed to salvage one point after being bowled out for 74 when the game was abandoned due to rain. He finally tweeted his congratulations for the Pakistani team.

128 The opening stand between Azhar Ali and Fakhar Zaman, Pakistan's first century stand for the first wicket against India in an ICC ODI event.

The Indian captain had come into the match with an astonishing batting average of 253 runs in this year's tournament, having been dismissed only once in four matches. The 27-year-old made his ODI debut in the tournament and went onto amass 252 runs, which included two fifties and his maiden hundred in the final.

Guns kill nearly 1300 US children every year
In all, about 19 children die or are wounded each day from firearms, either by homicide, suicide, or unintentional shootings. ". The incidents were spread across the United States but disproportionately higher in rural areas compared to urban ones.

The war of words between former India cricketer Virender Sehwag and former Pakistan wicket-keeper Rashid Latif has been an ongoing process through the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The teams clashed again in the semifinal and Pakistan won by four wickets to enter the final.

While Fakhar Zaman claimed a century for Pakistan and was awarded Player of the Match, Muhammad Amir, Junaid Khan and Hasan Ali annihilated India's batting order. Here's a look at some of the newspaper clippings from Pakistan. In the final, Inzamam chipped in with a vital 42 off 35 balls. He said: "Not just today, not just tomorrow, this day will be remembered in Pakistan for years to come". When we arrived here, we just played like we have nothing to lose. Pakistan beat India in the summit clash that was held on June 18 and thus lifted the trophy for the very first time. With England on course to get past Pakistan, Akram produced two magic balls that derailed England. Amir, fired up, got Sharma lbw.

The next over, Dhoni top-edged a pull off Hasan to deep square leg and, at 54-5, Indian fans began to leave in droves. His spell of 6-2-16-3 had delivered Pakistan the title.

"They made us make those mistakes because of the way they were bowling and the way they applied the pressure in the field and we have no hesitation or shame to admit that we could not play our best game today". It is like the West Indies winning World T20 despite their issues with the cricket board.

"The desire is to give the cricket-starved Pakistani supporters the chance to see some of the world's finest players in live action".
