Australian cricketing legend Adam Gilchrist on Monday credited Pakistan's adaptability and perseverance in the face of domestic challenges as key to their rout of favourites India in the Champions Trophy.
India won the toss and elected to field. For them, and for millions of people across Pakistan, the taste of victory was sweet.
Fakhar rode his luck for a spellbinding 114, caught-behind from a no-ball on three and escaping a run-out chance with just a single to his name in Pakistan's total of 338 for four at The Oval.
Fakhar continued to a 92-ball century, finally falling to Indian bowler Hardik Pandya in the 33rd over. "We will learn from our mistakes". And after he was dismissed the incoming Pakistan bats kept the runs flowing at a decent pace.
India lost their last four wickets for the addition of only six runs.
"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 ideal icing on the cake", remarked Sarfraz.
Kohli also came to the defense of R Ashwin who gave away 70 runs in 10 overs.
He said he "deeply appreciated" the team's extraordinary victory and said the players and management "deserve the nation's profound gratitude and appreciation for their remarkable performances".

Special counsel investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice
Trump is not the only one under scrutiny, Barrett said: Investigators are also looking into the finances of Trump associates. The NSA said in a statement that the "NSA will fully cooperate with the special counsel".
Lauding Muhammad Amir's bowling, Zaheer Abbas said that early fall of Indian wickets had put pressure on the team in the final at Oval.
Yuvraj then fell LBW on appeal to 18 year old Shadab, and Dhoni hooked out to the leg-side boundary to leave India utterly on the ropes at 54-5.
But he only looked to be delaying the inevitable and a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja saw him run out for 76.
"The risky Dhoni was bounced out and Jadeja failed to sacrifice himself to allow the incredibly exciting Hardik Pandya to take India towards an unlikely victory", he added.
Babar chipped in with a solid 46 and Mohammad Hafeez struck three sixes in a punchy unbeaten 57 that left India needing to produce the highest successful run chase in the tournament's history to lift the trophy for the third time. "Praising Pakistan team again he said", Pakistan is the better side in all the three departments shows that no team should be taken lightly. The way we showed character, this is for the nation. "Hopefully, this win, everyone will remember not [just] today or tomorrow, but for a very long time", said Sarfaraz, who was accompanied by team coach Mickey Arthur.
In this Champions Trophy 2017, England were the only undefeated team in the tournament.
Pakistans Fakhar Zaman was picked as Dhawans opening partner after the youngster aggregated 252 runs in four matches at an impressive strike-rate of 113.
