ICC could axe Champions Trophy for more T20 World Cups

20 Juin, 2017, 16:54 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

India skipper Virat Kohli, opener Shikhar Dhawan and pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar were the only Indians to find places on the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 team, which will be led by Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed.

Bottom-ranked Pakistan produced a breathtaking display at London's Oval on Sunday in the climax of a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day global nations.

After leaving India reeling on six for two following the dismissals of Sharma and Kohli, Amir's figures read 1.4 overs, four runs, two wickets. But the International Cricket Council are planning to send a World XI to play in Pakistan in September. With 13 wickets, he is now the joint leading wicket taker in any Champions Trophy tournament, along with Jerome Taylor.

"It might not be necessary to continue with two 50-over tournaments going forward".

Ghafoor also posted a video showing people in Srinagar purportedly celebrating Pakistan's victory over India.

When the fit-again Amir, who missed his side's semi-final win due to a back spasm, removed India's unsafe top three in a magnificent opening spell, Pakistan were in complete command.

Sarfraz paid tribute to the influence of a coaching staff led by Mickey Arthur, who took charge shortly before Pakistan's tour of England a year ago, where a Test series was shared but the ODI campaign lost 4-1.

Kohli said Pakistani players were more intense and passionate in the final which also helped them outplay the India team in every department of the game.

"When we arrived here (in England), we were No 8 and now we are the champions".

But Arthur insisted that reverse had been an "aberration". India won by five wickets in a 20-overs Asia Cu match in February and then repeated the feat with a six-wicket win in the T20 World Cup the following month in India. Arthur replied: "Yeah. But look, it's not about me and my career, it's about 15 unbelievable players in that dressing room who have been absolutely fantastic for the last one year". Both the players didn't hear each other's call and got stuck at the same end. "I got to one final with Pakistan, and eventually got a medal".

Amir was involved in the spot-fixing scandal that blighted the Lord's Test against England in 2010. "So, hopefully, this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all [cricket] playing nations will come to Pakistan", the Dawn quoted Sarfraz, as saying. After scraping to the last-four with some luck but plenty of pluck, Pakistan were expected to cave in against England, the only unbeaten side in the tournament till that stage.

The Indian team, considered to be one of the favourites to defend the title, have played to their potential in all the games till now, except the one against Sri Lanka, who surprised the Men in Blue in the group stage.
