It was 18th June and Pakistan had to play final of Champions Trophy 2017 against arch rivals India at Oval. Before toss no one was even thinking of picking Pakistan as favorites; only fans of Pakistan were hoping a win from nowhere. On that particular day Pakistan only lost the toss, other things went in favor of Sarfaraz & Pakistan and finally became champions of Champions Trophy at Oval; it was first time Pakistan picking that trophy. Sarfaraz took decisions of bowling change at right time and every time his bowlers picked up wickets. Key performance of that final was Pakistan’s all round performance, but we can’t miss out those four crucial catches taken by Captain behind the wickets in all important final game of the tournament.

After winning the CT17, Sarfaraz & team Pakistan came back to Pakistan and received a heroics welcome. Whether it was from balcony of Sarfaraz’s home, or Hassan Ali’s welcome at his own hometown or Junaid Khan’s welcome at his village. It was superb atmosphere around the country which isn’t stopping anywhere now. On the continuation of these celebrations players are being called on TV programs on regular basis now. Sarfaraz Ahmed was invited on GEO TV’s game show Geo Khelo Pakistan hosted by legendary bowlers Wasim Akram and Shoaib AKhtar.
On that particular occasion JS Bank Limited became the first brand to honor the winning Captain of Pakistan team, Sarfaraz Ahmed and awarded him with a brand new BMW X1 for bringing the Champions Trophy 2017 home. This superb gesture by JS Bank was appreciated all over the MEDIA including, electronic, print and Social media. On twitter that news trending topic with the hashtag of #JSHonorsSarfraz.
JS Bank set the tendency to appreciate players (champions) of Pakistan and I believe it won’t stop here; it should be followed by other brands as well to recognize our champions in their own style.
