World Cup T20 Champions Pakistan

Pakistan have been crowned as the World Cup T20 Champions.They had so many problems within the team as well as inside the country.But Younis Khan and his man have done it in style.Shahid Afridi was instrumental for Pakistan's success and he shined both with the bat and the ball in the crunch situation.He played two match winning knocks one in the semi-finals against the South Africans and the other one against the Sri-Lankans.

The match summary of the finals is Pakistan had to chase 139 for victory.It is one of the modest totals that can be a match winning one for any team since the situation was a big one and teams generally fail to perform in crunch situation.Pakistani players never panicked.Akmal played well and then Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik did the rest to crown Pakistan as the new T20 Champions.

Younis Khan the captain of Pakistan must be a proud man because only Imran Khan has achieved this feat before in the cricketing history for Pakistan.After the match in the press conference Shahid Afridi told that he would like to be the captain of Pakistan side.He clarified that he has full respect on Younis Khan but this is just a desire that he has and he wants to full fill that before he retires from International Cricket.
