  • Mohammad Amir celebrates the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan

Amidst the heated exchanges on social media as Indian cricket team and Pakistan cricket team gear up for the ICC Champions Trophy final, the picture of MS Dhoni holding Sarfraz Ahmed's son brought fans from both sides together to enjoy the spirit of the game, reported The Hindustan Times.

Title-holders India, set 339 to win, collapsed to 33 for three and 54 for five against a team they had thrashed by 124 runs in their tournament opener at Edgbaston on June 4.

But they responded with victory over South Africa and a thrilling defeat of Sri Lanka to reach the last four, before easily seeing off one of the pre-tournament favourites in hosts England in the semi-finals.

"I thought Pakistan were the better team in the first quarter and they created more opportunities but after we scored the first goal we started to play according to our plan", said India coach Roelant Oltmans.

He removed India's top three batsmen - Rohit Sharma (0), Shikhar Dhawan (21) and Kohli (5). A spectacular bowling attack easily defended a solid total of 338, bowling out India inside of 31 overs for just 158.

Former chief selector Iqbal Qasim lauded M Aamir and Hasan Ali for their outstanding performances, which enabled Pakistan to win coveted trophy for the very first time.

Confederations Cup: Mexico frustrate Portugal
And on the video referral system ( Portugal had a goal ruled out for offside by the video assistant referee): "It's the new rule". Video replays were again consulted, but no change was made to the initial decision to award the goal.


Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was all praise for his team for staging a dramatic comeback after the loss to India in the league stage.

Pakistan veteran Mohammad Hafeez's quickfire 57 not out, including three sixes, then took Pakistan well beyond 300.

Hasan ends the tournament as the leading wicket-taker with 13 wickets but the plaudits for the final win have to go to Amir (3 for 16) and Fakhar (114). "The way they turned things around speaks volumes for the talent they have in their side", Kohli said.

"It's been an up and down ride for us but I'm so proud of the boys", Arthur said. "They were more intense and more passionate". "The whole group kept believing, we knew we were better than what we showed in the first game against India".

The future of the tournament is at risk as the ICC prepares to hold its annual conference in London on the back of a successful eighth edition, won by Pakistan after a final against India with an estimated viewing audience in the hundreds of millions.
