Five Things that Pakistan Brought from ICC Champions Trophy 2017
We all know that Pakistan is considered as the most unpredictable side in the world and there is a reason for that. THEY LACK CONFIDENCE, YASS!! We can see that there is no shortage of talent in Pakistan. They have good batsmen, amazing all-rounders and the best bowling line-up in the world. But the reason why they were unable to do something big on the International circuit for last few years was their “Confidence.” Above all they lacked “Self-believe” they were unaware of their capabilities but now with this victory they know that they can destroy any opposition in the world.
After Misbah-ul-Haq, the selection of the Captain was also on the nerves of the management. Azhar Ali also failed and many people also criticized management for choosing Sarfaraz Ahmed, especially after the first of the ICC Champions Trophy. But he proved everyone wrong and finally now Pakistan has a captain till next World Cup.
International sports are not happening in Pakistan and there are very few moments of happiness and celebration. But Sarfaraz eleven made their Eid more special by bringing glory back to the green land.
Like Captain, another thing which Pakistan was lacking was their openers. Azhar Ali proved to be a decent choice but they failed to find the second opener after Sharjeel’s suspension. But now they have one mighty monster in shape of Fakhar Zamaan on top.
Winning the finals of an ICC competition is huge but defeating arch-rivals in the finals is priceless. And keeping in mind the tensions on the borders it was more like a war not a match. There was good amount of chatting before the match and finally Pakistani team was able to shut the mouths of many Indians including Rishi Kapoor and Virender Sehwag.
