ANKARA – Turkish President Reccep Tayyip Erdogan has congratulated the nation after Pakistan’s maiden Champions Trophy win in 2017 on Sunday.

Erdogan, in his message addressed to premier Nawaz Sharif, congratulated the country over the win today against India.

Mohammad Amir removed all of India s top three as Pakistan stunned their arch-rivals with a remarkable 180-run win at The Oval.

Title-holders India, set 339 to win, collapsed to 33 for three and 54 for five against a Pakistan side they had thrashed by 124 runs in their tournament opener at Edgbaston on June 4.

They were eventually dismissed for 158, with 19.3 overs to spare.
