The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has received the winner's prize money of 230 million rupees from the International Cricket Council. The Sarfraz Ahmed-led side lifted 2017 Champions Trophy after beating arch rivals India in the final at the Oval.
Pakistan defeated India by 180 runs in the final and Rakhi Sawant is clearly still not over the loss. She said in the interview, "The players they partied all night, they drank. Next day how do you expect them to score when their lungs are burning."
Sarfraz Ahmed’s mentors and benefactors describe him a leader who remains polite and grounded as well as street-smart, and confident. He can hold a tune at parties, though, currently, he's holding his entire nation spellbound.
India had an impressive tournament till the final of the ICC Champions Trophy as they started off their campaign by thrashing Pakistan by 124 runs and also defeated South Africa and Bangladesh comprehensively to reach into the final of the Champions Trophy.
Fakhar Zaman scored a century in the final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final against India which helped his team win by 180 runs and clinch the title. Zaman said that he was disappointed to see MS Dhoni's reaction after his century.
Batting on three runs, Fakhar Zaman was caught behind off Jasprit Bumrah but the Indian seamer had overstepped to give the Pakistani opener a lifeline. And he made the most of the second bite at the cherry by scoring 114 runs.
Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has directed the management of Samaa TV to apologise to captain Sarfraz Ahmed and viewers for airing comments made by Aamer Sohail during Pakistan's Champions Trophy match against Sri Lanka.
