Watch the moment Pakistan won the Champions Trophy

Pakistan’s Champions Trophy victory could encourage the world’s top cricket nations to resume touring the country, captain Sarfraz Ahmed says.

There has not been an international match in Pakistan since a 2009 attack on Sri Lanka’s team bus killed six policemen and injured seven cricketers.

“Hopefully this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all playing nations will come and play us,” said Sarfraz, 30.

Pakistan beat India by 180 runs at The Oval on Sunday.

The United Arab Emirates has become Pakistan’s cricketing home in recent years but a World XI is scheduled to tour their country in September
