Champions Trophy 2017: Pakistan crush India with devastating bowling display

19 Junio 2017, 04:04 | Gerardo Tarin

The minister said that the team, which did not get an ideal start in the tournament, worked very hard under the leadership of the newly-appointed captain Sarfraz Ahmed and turned the tables on India by trouncing them with such a big margin.

Mohammad Amir then reduced India to 33 for three by dismissing all the members of their much vaunted top three, with Rohit Sharma out for a duck and opposing skipper Virat Kohli, the world's leading ODI batsman, falling for just five.

It was then over to Amir, who quickly dispelled the predictions of many that India could pull off a tournament and ground-record run chase - in the process silencing the majority support in a sell-out crowd for this high-profile showdown as their team folded to 158 all out in 30.3 overs.

"No batsman goes out there to throw his wicket, no bowler wants to give away runs". His blitzkrieg of an innings (114 from 106 balls) set the tone for the match, and India failed to recover from this big blow altogether.

Once last hope Hardik Pandya (76) was run out, the writing was on the wall as India were bundled out for just 158 with nearly 20 overs remaining.

This is the second match between the sub-continent rivals at this year's tournament, with India having thrashed Pakistan in their opening group outing.

But the Pakistanis wrote off that defeat as an aberration.

So after coming into the tournament as rank underdogs - they entered just edging past West Indies as the lowest seed - Pakistan end up as the victor of the Champions Trophy 2017.

India lost its last four wickets for six runs in 25 balls as Pakistan celebrated its first major ODI success since 1992 and first global trophy since the 2009 World T20.

Fakhar rode his luck when he was caught behind off a no-ball on three. India still had those two casanovas of the ODI run-chase, Yuvraj Singh and Dhoni, but this was not 2006.

At the other end, Azhar Ali, usually staid and unremarkable, unfurled some shots of his own as Pakistan's openers put together a 128 runs.

Pacer Mohammad Amir also starred with the ball in Sunday's final, taking a trio of wickets while Shadab Khan added two more and Junaid Khan took one.

Tournament result: Pakistan win 2017 Champions Trophy.

Fakhar brought up his maiden century in his fourth one-day worldwide by muscling a sweep of Ashwin for his 12th boundary.

The sixth ever century in a Trophy final ended in the 34th over at 200-2. Zaman, who was caught behind off a no-ball when he had three, scored a boisterous 114 to help Pakistan reach 338 for four.

But veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez's quickfire 57 not out, including three sixes, then took Pakistan well beyond 300. Amir, fired up, got Sharma lbw. Kohli himself threw caution to the winds after surviving a dropped catch at slips.

However, the International Cricket Council are set to send a World XI to Pakistan in September.

Yuvraj Singh was lbw to leg-spinner Shadab and former captain MS Dhoni, the hero of many an India rescue mission, holed out in the deep. Very quick, very sharp bouncer at Bumrah's head, he waves his bat, trying to fend it off, gets the top edge up in the air and a delighted Sarfraz barely waits to get the ball in glove before he celebrates. This was a reversal they couldn't bear to watch any longer.
