Former England captain Alec Stewart on Test Match Special:
“That was brilliant from Pakistan’s point of view – their bowling was high quality.
“Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis are two of the all-time greats but Amir is showing he has the same potential.”
Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed:
“After the India match when we lost in the group stage, I told my boys the tournament hadn’t finished yet.
“Credit goes to my boys. Fakhar is a great impact player, he played like a champion batsman. Amir bowled brilliantly but all my bowlers bowled really well. We have a young team and credit to my boys.”
Pakistan legend Wasim Akram on Twitter:
“Wow, wow, wow – unbelievable performance by team green. It feels like deja vu after winning the 1992 World Cup. I am over the moon.”
Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq on Twitter:
“Congratulations to the Pakistan team and the whole country for such a great win. Boys, you made us happy and proud. Up and above from here!”
