Sarfraz Ahmed: 'The win will be remembered for a long, long time'

Rohan Gavaskar couldn't resist taking a selfie on his Oppo F3 from the stands at the Oval during the India-Pakistan Champions Trophy final.

The ICC Champions Trophy final win against India helped Pakistan vault to the No.6 spot in the International Cricket Council (ICC) One-day International (ODI) rankings, thereby helping them to inch closer to securing a direct entry to the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.

Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) of 1973 empowers a magistrate to prohibit an assembly of more than four people in an area.

The match turned out to be one of the most nightmarish under Virat Kohli's captaincy.

"They [Pakistan] had an unbelievable tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have". Jerome Taylor had also taken 13 in the 2006 tournament, which was held in India.

Curry hopped and shouted as he gave high-fives to the crowd after getting off a double-decker bus during the Thursday parade. Golden State won the series in five games and Green displayed a shirt that said "Quickie" with the Quicken Loans symbol.

Pakistan continue to hold their own in global cricket, even though they have not played a major worldwide team in their own country since March 2009, when the Sri Lanka team bus was attacked by terrorists while en route to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

After losing the game Indian cricketers were provoked and taunted by an enthusiastic Pakistani fan who called them by names when they were heading towards dressing room.

"We can't take anyone lightly but they were more intense and passionate on the day".

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

Arthur, like others, also want that cricket-loving fans in Pakistan, get to see their heroes play worldwide matches.

Calcavecchia made himself a fan favorite two years ago by wearing bacon-themed trousers in a state famous for its pork production. He sank birdie putts from about 10 feet away at both the second and sixth, and sank a shorter birdie attempt at the ninth.

Mohammad Amir then reduced India to 33 for three by dismissing their much-vaunted top three, with Rohit Sharma out for a duck and opposing skipper Virat Kohli, the world's top-ranked ODI batsman, falling for just five.

A near flawless performance in the field from Pakistan saw India fall a full 180 runs short of their target as they offered little resistance to the Pakistan attack. Pakistan has reached the Champions Trophy final for the first time.

Hardik Pandya smashed 76 off 43 balls, including six huge sixes, to give India hope of a dramatic revival but he was run out following a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja and left the arena shaking his head in an obvious state of frustration. "We played very well and know we have won the final", Ahmed said.

"When players like that get going on their day, it becomes really hard to stop them because I think 80 percent of his shots were high-risk - and they were all coming off", said Kohli. This will be the legacy we leave behind, that we beat India in the final.

"You can always look at things in hindsight, we've always tried to do our best in certain situations, sometimes the opposition does play very well".
