After the victory against India, Pakistan skipper Younis Khan has said that the ICC Champions Trophy belongs to his country.

“This Trophy was originally scheduled to be held in Pakistan. We were the real hosts. My nation wants it back and we are ready to give our hundred percent to get it back for the country,” Khan said.

Before reaching the final, the captain feels that his country needs the prestigious title.

“We have never reached the final and I think it is a good opportunity to go on to win the prestigious title. It is a good chance and we are only three games away from winning it. Our country needs a few more titles like this Trophy,” he added.

Khan honored Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Yousuf innings, "We owe the victory to both of them. Their innings have given us tremendous boost. They stuck to their job well and that turned out to be real difference." he added.

"I knew it very well that anything around 300 would provide a good opportunity for Pakistan to wrap up the match. Even a score of 270 would have been a fighting one. If you look at the records under lights on this ground such targets have not been chased," Captain said.

Captain recalled the time when things were getting dangerous and he appreciated Gambhir’s play.

"Gautam Gambhir was playing brilliantly and when (Suresh) Raina was playing with Rahul Dravid, things were getting dangerous. We are very lucky that he got run out. I was getting the feeling that if he continues to bat like he was he could take the game away from us," Khan said.
