"It has been an ultra-quick turnaround from no-hopers to champions for the Pakistan players and the manner in which the team won the match was really impressive", Afridi wrote in his column for the ICC's official website. The Pakistan bowling corps engineered a spectacular collapse of India's top order, sending Rohit Sharma, Kohli and tournament high-scorer Shikhar Dhawan back to the dressing room within the first 15 overs. There's a fresh wicket, even grass covering and we'd like our bowlers to exploit it.

Veteran batsman Mohammad Hafeez has dedicated Sunday's stunning ICC Champions Trophy victory over India to the Pakistani public. But Pandya's knock of 76 runs off 43 balls - including six sixes and four fours - earned him praise from the viewers and his own captain.

The 37-year-old further said that at present, Pakistan have got a team that has the ability to develop into one of the top three teams by the time the 2019 World Cup is played in England.

Pakistani batsmen kept scoring runs at rapid pace and did not give Indian bowlers much chance to exert pressure on them.

India played an unchanged XI from their 9 wicket win against Bangladesh in the semifinal while Pakistan made one change with the fit-again Mohammad Amir replacing the rookie Rumman Raees. Pakistan's margin of victory is their biggest by runs in 129 ODIs against India.

His departure proved to be a bad omen for the Indians as the only other time he had been dismissed in this year's Champions Trophy - against Sri Lanka in the group stage - the holders also lost the match. No matter the conditions, you have to play good cricket.

In Champions Trophy history 2013 has been the only edition in which the team batting first won the final.

Not wanting to let India know he was rattled, he hit two boundaries quickly, plus a third off his helmet, and he was on his way.
