Williamson 12th man in Trophy team

Rita Gibson | 22 June, 2017, 02:14

"So, to see us actually win the entire thing was like a dream come true", says Shah.

"Sarfraz Ahmed-led side deserves to celebrate well beyond the Eid festival next week as the players richly deserve their victory", he said.

The ICC side was selected by a panel that included former captains Michael Atherton (England), Sourav Ganguly (India) and Ramiz Raja (Pakistan) as well as the Editor of Wisden, Lawrence Booth, and AFP cricket reporter Julian Guyer, with the ICC's general manager of cricket, Geoff Allardice, the chairman.

"I wouldn't say it's categorically going to happen because the Champions Trophy is a very good event and very well-supported, particularly in the United Kingdom, where you get support for all teams". With a 10-team World Cup we're hoping to increase the competitiveness of matches and the standard of the tournament as a whole. But also the fans not identifying with heroes because they just don't see worldwide cricket.

From the airport to Sarfraz's residence, fans had also brought a special 70-foot long national flag and carried it in the street as Sarfraz drove home.

All the boys were confident and they contributed for the superb victory, he said and added that each one of them played for the team not for themselves individually.

Sixers like Fultz first
A team like the Los Angeles Clippers could jump into the mix and convince George to sign a long-term deal. "That's our goal. Celtics fans have been leery about moving back, particularly with all the buzz about likely No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz .

"So that's fantastic. But the credit goes to the players".

The country has a tradition of producing exciting fast bowling talent and 25-year-old Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan, 27, can be expected to spearhead the pace attack at the next World Cup. Pakistan simply pooh-poohed India and proved to the world that no one should ever take Pakistan lightly.

Pakistan made 338 for four, with the cornerstone being opener Fakhar Zaman's 114, his maiden ODI hundred.

"We want to be a little more consistent as a team", coach Mickey Arthur said. We trusted the players. We have to keep this momentum going.

The elated fan, Fawad, expressed his happiness at receiving the memento from his favourite cricketer. There is a reason for that, as the competition may end forever, opening doors to the World T20 every two years. We've got the monkey off our back in terms of qualifying. They proved it again, they can upset anyone on their day, disappointing for us but I have a smile on my face because we played well to reach the final. "That's the aim at the moment".
