Pakistan can upset any team on their day, says Kohli

338 Pakistan's total, their highest in any tournament final, and their second-highest in an ODI against India. "Even with the ball, they were very aggressive", he added. "Well played, deserved winners and a great result for Pakistan cricket", former Indian opener Virender Sehwag said.

As the final wicket fell, Oval, immersed in a'Sea of Green', was euphoric in its celebration along with those eleven on the field.

However, the Indian fast bowler had overstepped the front line and Zaman was recalled having scored just three runs off seven balls.

Along with senior pro Azhar Ali (58 off 71 balls), Zaman set the platform with a 128-run partnership for the opening wicket and consolidated it further with a whirlwind 72 off 63 balls with Babar Azam (46 off 52). A nation that was written off before the start of the tournament managed to win hearts with the spirit of the youth.

"Fakhar is a great impact player, he played like a champion batsman".

"As I said last time, it's just another game of cricket". It was fitting that Hasan Ali - the tournament's most prolific bowler - should take the final wicket. We are on the right track, everything is going right at the moment.

"Credit goes to my team management". He also played a vital role in the middle over by giving breakthroughs and containing runs.

Zaman was streaky in the beginning against India with a lot of top edges but overcame his troubles to play a courageous knock.

Kohli accepted his side had been outplayed, saying: "I want to congratulate Pakistan and their supporters".

Fakhar then drove left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja for six. "After losing the first game we were nowhere", said batsman Mohammad Hafeez who recorded 57 not out after India won the toss and inserted their rivals. Rohit had left alone Amir's first two deliveries outside the off stump, and should have anticipated the inswinger next - but was not ready for it. It got inexorably out of hands for Virat Kohli's side once Mohammad Amir dealt lethal blows in his first two overs.

He would have been run out for one if Kedar Jadhav s throw from cover had hit and he was caught behind off a Bumrah no-ball on three.

Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur too was a happy man. The whole group came together and kept believing and that was a superb thing. But they turned it around in style as they topped South Africa (19 runs via D/L method), and Sri Lanka (three wickets) to enter the semi-finals where they got the better of hosts England by eight wickets.
