The Pakistan team defeated India in the finals of the Champions Trophy and won the ultimate title in the match yesterday. The captain of Pakistan team Sarfraz Ahmed spoke in a post-match conference.
Sarfraz said, "I think this is a great achievement for me, my team and my country. Hopefully, this win, everyone will remember not [just] today or tomorrow, but for a very long time.When we arrived here, we were ranked 8th, and now, we are the champions. So, hopefully, this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all [cricket] playing nations will come to Pakistan," the dawn quoted him saying this.
"The credit goes to my boys; they're learning very well and they work hard.When superstars play, it is easier to guide them during a match because they don't need much guidance; they already know how to cope with high-pressure situations. But these youngsters are remarkable and highly committed," he added.
"Players like Fakhar Zaman, Shadab [Khan], Hasan Ali, all these players deserve to be recognised for their performances; that they were playing their first ICC tournament and nobody expected us to perform the way we did with a young team. All the credit goes to the entire team, they all worked really hard," the Pakistan captain said.
