Pakistan pays India back in same coin in Champions trophy final

Video highlights of the historic Pakistan victory can be viewed on this page, below.

Two mainstream newspapers, Greater Kashmir and Kashmir Reader had a similar headline. India were at the receiving end at The Oval, just as they were in Johannesburg in 2003 in the World Cup final against Australia, when they lost by 125 runs, which was the previous highest margin (in terms of runs). The same newspaper had a photo on the first page, with citizens celebrating the win by bursting firecrackers on Sunday night.

A near flawless performance in the field from Pakistan saw India fall a full 180 runs short of their target as they offered little resistance to the Pakistan attack.

Meanwhile, reflecting on India's tournament as a whole, Kohli insisted: "We can (still) be very proud. and we leave here with our heads held high".

Hardik Pandya helped drag his side from the edge of the abyss with 76 runs, but Pakistan bowled out India for 158 to score a remarkable victory.

Imran said that Pakistan had produced several champions in corruption, an obvious reference to his political opponents. "We knew the calibre of players we had so we just had to keep believing". "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", said Afridi in a column for ICC.

"Pakistan was the underdog coming into the final but there was a feeling of destiny about it. Tournament play is all about peaking at the right time and after a poor start to the tournament, most pundits gave it no chance of winning", Hussey wrote in his column for ICC.

"With the ball, we could have had more wicket-taking opportunities". Fakhar is a great impact player, he played like a champion batsman.

Pakistan was cruising at 0-128 in the 23 over with Azhar on 59, when he was involved in a farcical mix-up with opening partner Fakhar Zaman.

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.

"I want to congratulate Pakistan and their supporters", he said. Kohli only had praise for the 23-year-old who stood up against the fierce Pakistani bowlers and clobbered them all around the park - something none of the top order batsmen could do.

Richardson said: "It's never wise to try and make a call too early, but certainly the applications of both are very well founded".
