Yet another edition of the 2017 Champions Trophy drew to a close on Sunday with Pakistan clinching their maiden title by beating India in a one-sided final at The Oval on Sunday.
The competition saw several top notch performers and we here look at a XI, comprising of them:
There are two Shikhar Dhawans- One Who plays bilateral and other series for India and one who butchers attacks in the Champions Trophy.
The Dhawan that we saw in the Champions Trophy is the player we all desperately wish to you see more often.
Because when he gets going, he tears into an attack. He's good off the front foot and when in flow, can be devastating off the back foot as we saw in the game against Bangladesh, when he played one of the shots of the tournament, pulling Taskin Ahmed for a six.
338 runs in 5 matches at an average of 67 meant that the left-hander took home the Golden Bat for a second consecutive edition and put himself firmly on the list of the greatest Champions Trophy performers.
Bangladesh's most consistent batsman of the competition. Iqbal was the rock at the top of the order for The Tigers, amassing 293 runs in 4 matches, that included a hundred on the opening day of the competition against Bangladesh.
Ever since starting out as a teenager in 2007, the left-hander has become one of the pillars of the side, during the course of the next decade and will need to show this form in the World Cup in a couple of years, if Bangladesh are to do well.
The left-handed opener made a real impact in Pakistan's fortunes in the semifinal and final, when he got the side off to blistering starts in both games. In the final, however, he carried on to register a hundred, which helped the Men In Green post a massive score of 338 runs on the board and put them firmly in the driver's seat.
Zaman finished with 252 runs in 4 matches at an average of 63.
The Indian captain may have failed in the final, but performed in three out of the five matches, he played in, scoring 258 runs at an average of 129. In both matches that he failed in, Kohli was dismissed for single-digit scores and especially in the final, his early dismissal dented India severely.
Kohli is one of four Indians in this XI
5. Ben Stokes
The English all-rounder once again showed his worth in the side, making 184 runs in 4 matches, that included a match-winning hundred against Australia, which knocked them out of the competition.
At the present moment, Stokes would add value to any side that he represents and he would hope to carry the good form from the Champions Trophy into the T20I series against South Africa, that starts on Wednesday.
6.Sarfraz Ahmed(C and WK)
The captain of this team. Sarfraz seemed to have brought a sense of freedom among the group, evidence of which was seen in the final when the opening duo toyed with the Indian bowling.
Captaining a major event for the first time is always tough, but try bringing together a group of mercurial players and getting the best out of them against some of the best sides. That proved to be the real standout feature in Ahmed's captaincy.
He might not have made major contributions in the course of the competition, but his knock in the must-win game against Sri Lanka ensured that Pakistan stayed in the competition and eventual went on to win.
7. Hardik Pandya
Perhaps not the choice in all XIs, but Hardik Pandya made a few important contributions for India during the course of the competition.
His bowling may not have been as effective, but in two matches against Pakistan, Pandya showed his six-hitting prowess, meting out severe treatment on the spinners, especially in the final.
India will require a player like Pandya in future matches as well and he will hope to win more matches with both bat and ball in the future.
The England leg-spinner claimed 8 wickets in 4 matches, including a four-wicket haul against Australia in the Group Stages. Rashid could not create as big an impact in the semifinal, but his performance should augur well for England, who will need him in the future as well.
The Pakistan bowler was the standout performer with the ball in the entire competition and deservingly won the Man Of The Series Award. Ali finished with 13 wickets in 5 matches and took critical wickets, coming in at first change, and picking up important wickets in the middle overs.
Pakistan will hope that he remains fit for a long time and becomes an asset in the future.
India's best bowler in the competition. Kumar was superb, both at the start and at the end of the innings, claiming 7 wickets in 5 matches to help India reach the final. His most important contributions came in the end of the innings, where he mixed up his lengths very well to restrict the batsman.
Kohli will hope that he stays fit for longer duration and helps India win more matches with the ball.
11. Mohammad Amir
The left-arm pacer breathed fire in the final against India, breaking the backbone of the opposition with the ball, by claiming Rohit Sharma, Dhawan and Kohli within the first Powerplay.
Amir ended the competition with 5 wickets in 3 matches and has really looked threatening ever since he made a return to international cricket after serving his ban. Pakistan will want him to stay fit for a longer duration and help them win more matches.
