Virat Kohli named in Team of Champions Trophy, Pakistan's Sarfraz Ahmed skipper

To avoid unnecessary and unwelcomed tensions, security personnel were deployed outside cricketer M. S. Dhoni's residence soon after the match.

In the Super Sunday clash between India and Pakistan, Sarfraz Ahmed and team thrashed Virat Kohli and co by 180 runs in the ICC Champions Trophy final on Sunday. India eventually collapsed to 158 all out as they suffered their heaviest defeat in terms of runs in 129 ODIs against Pakistan.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said being named skipper of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) team of the Champions Trophy was the "perfect icing on the cake" of his side's stunning title triumph. "You will have failures, and one team has to lose on the day, and today was our day to lose because the opposition played much better than us".

Pakistan had entered the tournament ranked eighth on the ICC ODI Team Rankings, but courtesy its victories against higher-ranked sides, finished in sixth place, which means it now looks well set to qualify automatically for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

The tweet provoked many Pakistani fans and they responded harshly.

Some Kashmiris came out of their homes and celebrated Pakistan's victory by bursting crackers and dancing on the streets. "But I am more happy and delighted for players like Fakhar Zaman and Hassan Ali, who impressed their peers through their talent and performances, and found their way in the side".

The district court agreed with the challengers that the map was drawn for partisan reasons and resulted in "wasted votes". The Republican party now controls a majority of state legislatures and, thus, re-districting in most states .

"Pakistan had a dream run in the tournament, but doubts remained over its ability to tackle the pressures of an India game, let alone that of a final".

For the teams, and the fans and former cricketers turned experts, it was nearly a given that the two teams would turn out for the final and India will win. With the ball we could have had a few more wicket-taking opportunities. "Ably supported by Azhar Ali, and a telling cameo from Mohammed Hafeez, the final total of 338 was a daunting one". "And the players nearly drove that conversation, which for us was very new, but also showed a maturity, and the way they turned it around was unbelievable", Arthur said.

"India was a bit lacklustre in their chase once Kohli was dismissed".

"We went back to the hotel and they treated me very well".

"At the start they were bowling very well". That skill is one that will make him a truly potent force as long as he stays fit.

Reflecting on their response to the adversity of their initial setback against India two weeks ago, and the culmination of their hard work, he said: "It sort of feels surreal really".
