ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Final


Worldwide cricket has been suspended in Pakistan since a failed terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009, forcing Pakistan to play its global games in the United Arab Emirates.

Some of the tweets by Major General Asif Ghafoor, the director of the Pakistani military's Inter-Services Public Relations department, even showed people in India-administered Kashmir celebrating Pakistan's victory.

During the match and following India s defeat, Pakistani fans wasted no time in getting back at Rishi Kapoor.

For him, Pakistan cricket has gone through rough times. "And this is.Srinagar!" he wrote.

Going into the final as heavy underdogs after India had beaten them in the first game of the tournament, Pakistan took no notice of how things were supposed to unfold as they posted a commanding total of 338/4 after being in to bat. "United we shall defend Pak against all threats our enemies hatch".

Pakistan celebrated one of its biggest cricket victories on Sunday, defeating archrival India in the Champions Trophy final in London. Both the teams were pumped up for the match and the Green Army got the better of Men in Blue to win their maiden Champions Trophy title.

He reached his century off 92 balls by sweeping Ravichandran Ashwin for four and launched the spinner for six in his next over before aiming a huge blow off Hardik Pandya to leg only to top-edge into the off-side - ending a 72-run stand with Babar Azam. He was delighted to see that Pakistan is still producing brilliant young talent.

Authorities identify man who shot nurse at Ocala hospital
Gignac had been arrested earlier in the day at Mile Marker 341 on Interstate 75 in Marion County where he had been walking. A man who allegedly shot and wounded a nurse at a Florida hospital has been charged and held without bond.

India lost their nintht wicket when their score was 156 in ICC Champions Trophy final here.

Mohammad Amir, whose pace and swing overpowered Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan and broke the back of Indian batting, has climbed 16 slots to reach 21st place, while Junaid Khan has moved up nine places to 47th position. This was Pakistan's largest margin of victory, by runs, in 129 ODIs against India, surpassing their 159-run success at Delhi in 2005.

"Our team has presented us with a best gift in the holy fasting month of Ramadan", said Shabbir Ali Asghar, a 14-year-old student, as he watched the final with friends on television in Rawalpindi.

"The teams that might have taken Pakistan lightly in this event will never dare to repeat such a mistake again and whatever the lead-up to the 2019 World Cup may be like; Pakistan will be a serious contender for the trophy". He can be heard mocking Indian players by repeatedly asking "Baap Kaun Hai (who's the father)". Yes, in 2009 militants attacked a bus carrying the Sri Lankan cricket team and injured a few of the players.

"The 1992 World Cup win gave us a new generation of match winners and this win ranks very close to that".

And on Wednesday they knocked previously unbeaten tournament hosts England out of the competition with a comprehensive eight-wicket win in Cardiff.
