Pakistan Post's Treasury Officer Karachi Tariq Awan said that 50,000 souvenir sheets and 300,000 stamps have been issued.

The stamps and souvenir sheets will be available at post offices across the country from Thursday.

"The set of three stamps will cost Rs30, while the souvenir sheets are priced at Rs50 each," Awan said.

Pakistan had thrashed favourites India by 180 runs to clinch the Champions Trophy title in a thrilling competition at London's Oval ground.

The green shirts set up a daunting 339-run target with a loss of four wickets for the men in blue, but Indian batting collapsed under a calculated bowling attack, with all men out for just 158 runs in the 31st over.

The score is Pakistan's second-highest against India. The last time Pakistan beat India in an ICC event was in 2009 ─ also during a Champions Trophy match.
