India captain Virat Kohli: Pakistan completely outplayed us in Champions Trophy final

"But the thing about that [initial] loss, and I think we clarified it at that time, was we knew that was an aberration. It's a great day, I'm so happy".

Pakistan thrashed India by 180 runs in a thrilling competition at London's Oval ground on June 18 to steal the Champions Trophy from the title holders.

Actor cum director Kamal Rashid Khan, who is popular for his controversial remarks, alleged that the Indian captain Virat Kohli should be behind bars for "fixing the Champions Trophy final", after India received crushing defeat against Pakistan by 180 runs.

"The fearless brand of cricket it is playing is exciting to watch and it have some real quality in the squad that should only get better in the future".

Zaman was lucky early in his innings as he survived a caught-behind off the bowling of Jasprit Bumrah with the Indian pacer having overstepped.

In his column for the International Cricket Council (ICC) website, the swashbuckling all-rounder cautioned other cricketing nations to not take the Green Brigade lightly as on their day they have the potential to outshine any good side. "They can upset anyone on their day", Kohli said after the match.

Credit to Pakistan. They outplayed us. Kohli added that the team with more intensity and passion won the all-important match in London.

From "no-hopers" at the start to champions in the end, former captain Shahid Afridi feels Pakistan have become serious title contenders for the 2019 ODI World Cup with their stunning Champions Trophy triumph.

"After the India match I said to my boys, the tournament is not finished yet".

But Pakistan batsman Hafeez says his team-mates vowed to stick together despite the avalanche of criticism and they reaped the rewards in memorable fashion on Sunday. "We can not take anyone lightly but they were more intense and passionate on the day", Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony, as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.

India opener Shikhar Dhawan and Pakistan's Hassan Ali had already won the Golden Bat and Gold Ball trophies for finishing as the most successful batsman and bowler, respectively, while Tamim Iqbal of Bangladesh was also selected after driving Bangladesh to their maiden semi-final in a major ICC event.
