Pakistan's Champions Trophy-winning captain Sarfraz Ahmed believes his team's triumph against the odds couldn't have been possible without the "boys' hard work, the public's prayers and Allah's help". "I can bet that India will win the trophy", he said. "But it's unfortunate that they couldn't lift the ICC trophy."No doubt team Pakistan played under the captaincy of my nephew Sarfaraz, which is a proud moment for us, but when it comes to the nation, our country is above all", he said".
Sarfraz, Arthur revel in stunning Pakistan triumph
He was eventually out when he sliced medium-pacer Hardik Pandya and Jadeja, running back from point, held a well-judged catch. Pakistan's premium bowler trapped the second highest run-scorer Rohit Sharma in just the third ball of the innings for LBW.
Lending support, even Sehwag who is known to never mince his words on the trending issues has raised his voice over this. But, Sehwag took a stand when it was needed, he came in rescue of Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed who has been trolled heavily for his less than ordinary English speaking skills in the press conference. But in response, many Indians came together to respect the cricketer, because "English doesn't define intelligence", as one Facebook user commented on the post.

Mohammad Hafeez - with a 34-ball 50 - and Babar Azam chipped in too to ensure Pakistan turned the promise into substance. The left-hander was literally brutal as he smashed 12 fours and 3 massive sixes during the course of the innings.
Summary: Hasan, however, asked the fans to back team India in hard times. But amidst all this, India and Pakistan united in lending their support to Pakistan's captain Sarfraz Ahmed - an incident that was nothing less than heartwarming. The photograph of Dhoni and Sarfaraz's son was shared on Twitter by an Indian journalist, which took us all by surprise and went viral on social media in no time!
