Cricket | Champions Trophy

Pakistan dominate team of the tournament



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.

Fakhar Zaman, who scored a match-winning 114 in Pakistan's 180-run victory over arch-rivals India in the final, was picked alongside the tournament's top scorer Shikhar Dhawan of India.

Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal was slotted in at No 3 after driving his side to their maiden semifinal at a major global tournament.

Joe Root represented semifinalists England for his aggregate of 258 runs while Ben Stokes was rewarded for his all-round contribution.

The bowling line-up was led by Pakistan paceman Hasan Ali, who finished with 13 wickets, and his teammate Junaid Khan. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who claimed seven dismissals for India, was also named.

England's Adil Rashid was the only spinner after claiming seven wickets.

“To be appointed as captain of the Team of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, which includes some of the finest and most attractive cricketers of this generation, is the perfect icing on the cake,” Sarfraz said in an International Cricket Council statement.

Team: Shikhar Dhawan (India), Fakhar Zaman (Pakistan), Tamim Iqbal (Bangladesh), Virat Kohli (India), Joe Root (England), Ben Stokes (England), Sarfraz Ahmed (Pakistan) (capt & wk), Adil Rashid (England), Junaid Khan (Pakistan), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (India), Hasan Ali (Pakistan), Kane Williamson (New Zealand) (12th man)
