Pakistan Players Welcomed Home as Heroes After Champions Trophy win 

Hundreds of fans stayed up late to welcome home members of new Champions Trophy winners Pakistan in the cities of Lahore and Karachi on Tuesday.

Messages such as ‘Champion of Champions. Team Pakistan! Welcome back after such a tremendous victory’ were emblazoned on banners erected at Allama Iqbal International Airport, along with a picture of the team carrying the trophy.

Television footage showed supporters chanting ‘Pakistan Zindabad,’ which means long live Pakistan when four of the players entered the public area at 2.30am.
