India are out, so Pakistan captain Younus Khan wants a re-match against Australia in the Champions Trophy final.
Australia's last-ball win over Pakistan in Wednesday's pool match in Centurion eliminated India from the tournament and quashed any chance of the two subcontinent teams meeting in Monday's final.
The terrorist troubles in both India and Pakistan in recent times have had an effect on the countries' cricket sides, as it is unclear when they will next play each other given the current security climate.
That made last Saturday's pool game between the sides - which Pakistan won by 54 runs - a huge event for fans in both nations.
Pakistan's win in that match meant India had to barrack for their rival against Australia, as Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side could have overtaken Ricky Ponting's on run-rate had it lost.
Younus was clearly pleased that fans from both countries were cheering for the same thing.
"It was very fantastic game and everybody watched, especially India. All India want a Pakistan win!" he said.
Now that Pakistan cannot play their rival, Younus said Australia would be the next-best opponent.
