ICC could axe Champions Trophy for more T20 World Cups

Fast bowlers Junaid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hassan shared 28 wickets between them in the tournament, while wrist-spinner Adil Rashid finished with seven wickets with an economy rate of 4.73.

"Let's take no credit away from Pakistan, though, for the way they bowled that day and then followed it up again on Sunday in the final".

"We've got two years until the 2019 World Cup". Hopefully, this win, everyone will remember not [just] today or tomorrow, but for a very long time.When we arrived here, we were ranked 8th, and now, we are the champions.

Sarfraz was right to highlight one of the hurdles his side have overcome in recent times, with the country starved of global cricket since the terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in 2009 at Lahore that has left them playing nearly exclusively on neutral grounds. We have got enough points and now we do not have to go through qualifying, we want to work hard from here.

Akram, who played a crucial role in their sucessful 1992 World Cup campaign-including a hat-trick against England in the final- also praised the team for their performance.

Mohammad Amir picked up the wickets of Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma to dent India in the ICCChampions Trophy 2017 final.

Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya's fighting spirit was the only positive that came out of the team's heart-wrenching defeat to Pakistan in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy at Oval.

"Congratulations to Team Pakistan on their great performance in winning #CT17 And how wonderful to watch Fakhar's raw talent in action", Pakistan cricket great Imran Khan tweeted.

"I wasn't feeling well yesterday, I was thinking I wouldn't be able to play, but the physio said I would be fine in the morning".

Waqar said the victory will help serve the cause of cricket at home where worldwide cricket is not being played for many years. I dedicate this win to the people of Pakistan. For what they've been through - you talk about our players not playing at home. Lot of credit also goes to senior players like Hafeez bhai (Mohammed Hafeez) and a brilliant spell from Amir, said Sarfraz.

Registering their largest margin of victory in the 129 one-day matches Pakistan has played against India, the victory had fans in Pakistan dancing in the streets, waving Pakistani flags and setting off fireworks.

"Pakistan played what seems to be a ideal game of cricket". We don t get the home advantage like other teams.

"If captain Sarfraz Ahmed had come in earlier instead of Imad Wasim to lead the final charge, perhaps the total would have even gone beyond 350", Sangakkara wrote in his column for the International Cricket Council (ICC), describing the heroics of Fakhar's batting. No one cared for those syntax errors due to language limitations.
