Pakistan beat India in the final in London on Sunday for their maiden Champions Trophy win.

"Winning the Champions Trophy is a big achievement from this team. But winning one cup does not mean we have conquered the world. We need to continue to do well and be more consistent in our performances and continue our winning ways," Afridi said at a function here today.

According to a newspaper, Afridi admitted that even he didn't have any idea that Pakistan would reach the final and win it.

"But the way the team recovered after the loss to India is commendable and I am very happy that the cricket team has brought so much of happiness and joy to our people," Afridi said.

"But we need to build on this great victory and become a force to reckon with on a consistent basis."
