3 held for running betting racket on India-Pakistan Champions Trophy match

"Everyone desires composure, not just me". So, you understand those dynamics as a team when, you know, things are not happening and you win a tournament like this. You can not criticise them for that decision. Fakhar is a great impact player, he played like a champion batsman.

"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. "So, hopefully, this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all [cricket] playing nations will come to Pakistan", the Dawn quoted Sarfraz, as saying.

Pakistans Fakhar Zaman was picked as Dhawans opening partner after the youngster aggregated 252 runs in four matches at an impressive strike-rate of 113. Alongside a photo of the hockey team, the paper featured an image of Kidambi Srikanth, who won the Indonesia Superseries Premier badminton tournament earlier in the day.

"Pakistan, meanwhile, has a team that can develop into one of the top three teams by the time the 2019 World Cup is played in England".

Except Zimbabwe's tour two years ago, Pakistan had played all of their "home" matches outside of the country since the 2009 terror attack on Sri Lanka's team bus in Lahore.

"Deep in your heart, as a cricket lover, you can't be disappointed to see a nation like that (win)".

At his post-match conference, the 30-year-old also hailed his young team's efforts through the tournament.

Perhaps because of that they were able to adjust well in those conditions. We shouldn't be surprised by what happened.

We will have been in the market for a year with PS4 Pro , and that thing also is selling faster than we can make them. With higher specs and a promise of true 4K gaming, the PlayStation 4 Pro seemingly lags behind the Microsoft console.

With their inability to host top worldwide sides on home soil due to security concerns and a spot-fixing controversy blighting their domestic T20 league, Sunday's win provided the country's cricket fans with some much-needed cheer. They certainly played really good cricket.

An elated Sarfraz added: "After the India match when we lost in the group stage, I told my boys the tournament hadn't finished yet". We have about 11 days to sort it out before the contract expires.

"We just had to keep believing. they kept on believing, trusting their roles (and) trusting the gameplan that "Saffy" (Sarfraz) and I had set up".

"It is admirable that players are sticking together". I think we've been through all that before.

He said that, apart from the Pakistani and Indian players, the likes of Tamim Iqbal, Kane Williamson, Kusal Mendis, Adam Milne, Nuwan Pradeep and Imran Tahir have all impressed in the tournament.

Only Pakistan's mercurial reputation gave anyone pause about their slim-to-none chance of winning the Champions Trophy.

He also called for more relevance in staging worldwide tournaments irrespective of the format.

"I'm incredibly proud of our dressing room". The greatest requirement and issue administrators face is giving matches relevance so supporters want to be engaged.
