YES, GUYS! WE DID IT! Team Pakistan just pulled a stunner and we can’t really believe it. The team that lost against one of the finalists India in the opening game was never expected to even reach so far and actually win the tournament. Our young lads and the captaincy of Sarfaraz Ahmed really worked well in giving the entire nation an epic celebration!
Talk about any India-Pakistan match, it’s a nervous ride swamping of emotions, stress, frustration and a passion beating in the hearts of millions. Team Pakistan just won against India and in a final. A coveted trophy comes home and we not only have the victory to cherish upon but also the commendable performances by each and every player this afternoon in London. The world is cherishing this team’s victory and we simply cannot be happier!
The world congratulated team Pakistan and we are super proud!
