Former South African captain Graeme Smith commended Pakistan's batting performance in their 180-run win over India in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

They were eventually dismissed for 158, with 19.3 overs to spare.

Victorious Pakistan players dominated the Champions Trophy team of the tournament which was announced on Monday with their captain Sarfraz Ahmed named captain of the side.

Mohammad Amir then picked the three big wickets of Rohit Sharma (0), Virat Kohli (5) and Shikhar Dhawan (21).

Fakhar Zaman slammed his maiden century as he helped Pakistan notch up 338/4, the second-highest total in Champions Trophy history in the final against India.

British Prime Minister Theresa May herself had come in for a barrage of criticism over her own response to the disaster . The paneling has been blamed for quickly spreading the flames. "We will go where the evidence may take us".

Along with senior pro Azhar Ali (58 off 71 balls), Zaman set the platform with a 128-run partnership for the opening wicket and consolidated it further with a whirlwind 72 off 63 balls with Babar Azam (46 off 52).

It was Pakistan's first worldwide 50-over trophy since winning the 1992 World Cup.

Hardik Pandya smashed 76 off 43 balls, including six huge sixes, to give India hope of a dramatic revival but he was run out following a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja and left the arena shaking his head in an obvious state of frustration. And not only for the players but also for the fans, who have not been able to identify with their heroes, because they just don't get to watch global cricket at home.

Pakistan, however, have lost all three of their previous matches against India in the knockout stages of International Cricket Council events.

That Pakistan lifted the trophy was surprising enough - at eighth in the world they began as the lowest-ranked team in the tournament - but it is the way they demolished the strong favourites will live long in the memory. Pandya, who had a measure of the Pakistan bowling, looked visibly upset after his dismissal, and as things now stand, he didn't forget the incident in a hurry.
