Pakistan jump to sixth place in ICC ODI rankings

"However, by the time it lifted the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at The Oval, it was undoubtedly playing its best cricket".

Their defence of the title they won in England in 2013 foundered against the team who began the campaign ranked below all other competing nations at eighth, and lived up to that billing in an opening group match in which they lost to their greatest rivals by 124 runs.

They were eventually dismissed for 158 in reply to Pakistan's 338 for four, which featured Fakhar Zaman's 114, the left-handed opener's maiden one-day worldwide hundred coming in just his fourth match at this level.

"I want to congratulate Pakistan and their supporters", he said.

"They had to earn their win, credit to them they outplayed us today in all departments".

"Hopefully this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all playing nations will come and play us", said Sarfraz, 30.

He heard the ball pouched behind him and knew he was dismissed before he'd really got started in the biggest cricket match of his life on Sunday. "But these youngsters are remarkable and highly committed", he added.

Amir also had Shikhar Dhawan (21) caught behind with a cross-seam delivery, teenage leg-spinner Shadab Khan trapped Yuvraj Singh (22) lbw on review and India were doomed when MS Dhoni (4) was caught on the pull for four off Hasan Ali - the tournament's leading wicket-taker.

According to Sportskeeda, Kohli said he was more than satisfied with Hardik Pandya's performance throughout the Champions Trophy.

"A lot of people had vibes that we might not be able to defeat India, that their batting is too strong for us to handle".

Amir took out all three of India's premier batsmen, bowled a maiden for figures of 6-2-16-3, then watched as his teammates mopped up.

The flamboyant cricketer, nicknamed Boom Boom further insisted that just like the 1992 World Cup win gave Pakistan a new generation of match winners, this Champions Trophy victory will also put the country's cricket back on track.

Arthur said on Sunday: "It's been an up and down ride for us, but so proud of the boys".

Addressing the pre-match press conference, Kohli said he had never tried his hand at hockey but is confident that the Indian team will come out with flying colours.

"Certainly, it's not about me and my career but it's about 15 unbelievable players in that dressing room, who have been absolutely fantastic for the past year".

It was an all-round performance from the Men in Green and they only got better with every game in the tournament.
