Pakistan win outcome of nation, family's prayers: Sarfraz

Following are five key moments that helped Pakistan win the Champions Trophy for the first time with a crushing 180-run victory over holders India at The Oval in London on Sunday.

Pakistan punched above wight after losing their first game to India by 124 runs.

Pakistan opening batsman Azhar Ali has been run out in comical fashion during the final of the Champions Trophy against India at The Oval.

Pakistan has gained four points to move to 95 points as their wins over higher-ranked opponents in the tournament included the one in the final against India and an eight-wicket semi-final victory over England.

"Fakhar Zaman, Rumman Raees, Shadab Khan, Fahim Ashraf - all new boys and it is very good sign for Pakistan cricket the way Hasan Ali played", he continued.

Hundreds of fans gave Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed a hero´s welcome as he arrived home carrying the Champions Trophy early on Tuesday.

Even Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the leader of the Kashmiri separatist Hurriyat Conference, checked in via Twitter to express his satisfaction at Pakistan's extraordinary and unexpected win in Champions Trophy final, the second-most prestigious event in world cricket, behind only the Cricket World Cup.

"So hopefully that starts paving the way for future tours".

The India Today website quoted police as saying that the men were charged because of the anti-India slogans and not because they were cheering for Pakistan.

"We just had to keep believing. they kept on believing, trusting their roles (and) trusting the game-plan that "Saffy" (Sarfraz) and I had set up", said Arthur for whom this was a first major tournament success after spells in charge of both his native South Africa and Australia.

At least 10 mobile phones, two laptops, two televisions and registers were recovered during the raid, which began at 7 p.m. on Sunday and went on till late night, the police said.

"In the end. you have to accept and admire sometimes the skill of the opposition", Kohli added sportingly.
