    Well done to Pakistan, and to Sri Lanka for that matter.

    Especially nice to see those two sides play the final, given events earlier this year.

    Well done to Pakistan on a fantastic game and tournament. They played wonderfully well today and thoroughly deserved to win. This is a fantastic result for Pakistan Cricket and World Cricket in general and credit has to go to Younis Khan and the rest of the team for playing so well.

    Very happy for Younis, deserves it.

    Weird championship huh? Who would have thought Pakistan would have won? Not even their biggest fans would have predicted this from the outset.

    Last night was tough for me to watch. I didn't want Pakistan to win as theywere our "rivals" so to speak,and Lanka winning would mean all my Lankan mates (a lot of them) would never live it down.

    But after seeing those pics I'm chuffed for Pakistani fans. If they felt anything like I felt when India won last time then it's awesome for them considering the situation in their country now. Hilarious that so many people wrote themoff pre-tournament. They were something like 13-4(?) in T20's going in, never write them off.

    Can you really 'predict' anything with Pakistan? They probably play their best cricket when the expectation on their team is minimal.

    Well done to them though, i doubt too many teams had the kind of talent to beat the 2 most clinical sides in SA and SL back to back the way they did. IMO they had a far more balanced 'team' than SL as I mentioned before and I am glad that they won not to mention that cricket is a better sport for having these unpredictable and capricious talents than it would be without them. A consistent Pakistan would probably be the most boring thing in the world and its really what sets them apart.

    Well done to Pakistan.

    Almost the perfect T20 performance against a very solid outfit in Sri Lanka. Afridi and Ajmal proved again to be the most dominating spin-twin combination in T20 cricket. Incredible ability for the two of them to put the brakes on every innings and simply hustle through 8 combined overís in no time.

    Afridi is indeed an enigma with the bat, maybe only comes off one year in every three. But he has won Pakistan a T20 world cup, dangerous cricketer now he demands selection more for his spin bowling ability.

    Quality end to a pretty decent tournament.

    Just shows how much India and Pak are alike as far as cricket is concerned.

    Pakistan started getting better and better as the tournament progressed imo and really became the best side in the competition when the semi final was over. Then, it was just a matter of carrying that momentum for another 40 overs on the finals. Deserving champions.

    Congratulations Pakistan, it is good to see them get some success, after what happened earlier this year. They and their millions of fans deserve this.

    Excellent cricket from Pakistan in the finals... Thoroughly outplayed perhaps the best side in the competition till the finals in Sri Lanka in almost every facet of the game.


    Sri Lanka lost it in their batting, afaic... 138 is never enough even with THAT bowling attack. That said, Pakistan were chasing in a big cup final and the rpessure could have told on them. Great props to them on batting so sensibly, esp. Afridi.. Who would have thought he, of all people, would play such a sensible knock...


    Excellent display from these guys and congratulations to the Pakistan team and all pakistan supporters here.. Most of you guys are a credit to not just your country but to the entire cricket fans community and here's to your enjoyment and health. May cricket always have a healthy and thriving Pakistan team...



    BTW, with dialogues being started again between India and Pakistan, there is a good chance that their isolation might come down a few levels. If the governments are talking, I am sure the cricket boards will get on well too (they always have) and we might see their players in next year's IPL at least... All things moving in the right direction,even if they are moving slowly..
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Stick him in our u-17s league and you could guarantee he'd get 9 or more wickets every game.
    I think some of the younger lot are much closer to their original ages especially those who have come through age level competitions.

    Congratulation Pakistan!!
    For me, it's like you have taken the Cup back from India to whom you had gifted it, last time. So, it's just poetic justice that Pakistan should win this time. It's also the best thing to boost the morale of both the team and the people of Pakistan.
