A message of congratulation sent to the President PCB from SLC on the occasion of Pakistan’s incredible victory of the #CT17 :
“On behalf of the Executive Committee, the Sri Lanka National team and the entire cricket loving populace of Sri Lanka may I offer my heartiest congratulations to the Pakistan National Team on a well deserved and resounding victory in the Champions Trophy 2017.
They say that cricket is unpredictable – and this tournament most certainly proved it. A tournament of epic proportions, where on every day and every pitch cricket was the ultimate hero.
Team Pakistan have played outstanding cricket throughout this tournament, and we are proud and privileged as a fellow Asian Nation.
Cricket is the beat of our hearts, and joy of our nations, and this day, Pakistan will be home to much deserved and unspeakable joy!
Well done once again, and my best wishes to captain Sarfaraz Ahamed and his men!” ~ Hon. Thilanga Sumathipala, President, SLC.
