‘India had Rohit, Virat and Dhoni, but…’, Sarfraz Ahmed told the story of Champions Trophy victory
In the Champions Trophy 2017, Pakistan won the final match against India. This victory was always memorable for the Pakistan team. The captain of Pakistan at this time was Safraj Ahmed. After defeating India in the final match, Sarfraz Ahmed came into the limelight. Now this match has been more than 6 years. Speaking about this, Ahmed gave a special comment about the Indian team and players.
Sarfaraz Ahmed was able to win the Champions Trophy for Pakistan in 2017. But currently he is out of limited overs cricket. A few days ago, he somehow made a stunning comeback from Test cricket. After 2019, he played a Test match for Pakistan in December 2022. He has scored 336 runs in the last two matches since his comeback. Babar Zam, who currently leads Pakistan in all three forms of cricket, was a debutant for the team in the 2017 Champions Trophy. Media Ahmed talked about this in detail.
In an interview on a podcast, Ahmed was asked questions about this Champions Trophy final. “I can never forget this Champions Trophy final,” he said. Words cannot describe the victory in the final against India. If this was an ordinary match, it wouldn’t have mattered much. We had won against India before. To win the final against a team that can hit any number of runs was incredible.”
“No target was higher for India. They had players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. On the other hand, our players had not even lost their milk teeth. We had young kids to play with, who were taking the Pakistan team to a different level. Babar Azam, Hasan Ali, Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf were all very young players at that time,” Ahmed said in the interview.
Meanwhile, considering this match (2017 Champions Trophy Final), India won the toss and invited Pakistan to bat. Batting first, Pakistan scored 338 for 4. In reply, the Indian team represented by Rohit, Virat and Dhoni failed to reach the target. India were bowled out for just 158 runs in 30.3 overs.
