Pakistan players celebrate during the award ceremony for the ICC Champions Trophy at The Oval in London, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

While majority of the fans celebrated the win in the right way, there were a few insane ones who took joy in insulting Indian cricketers when they were returning back to the pavilion.

"They are world class players for a long time".

Maj. Gen. Ghafoor also posted a video showing people in Srinagar purportedly celebrating Pakistan's victory over India. "They expressed hatred toward India and friendship toward Pakistan".

Amir, whose career was almost ended on the other side of London's River Thames by a ban and jail sentence for his involvement in a spot-fixing scan during a 2010 Test at Lord's, made a brilliant comeback after a back spasm forced him out of the semi-final victory over England.
