India vs Pakistan

Meanwhile, Pakistan would consider it as a golden opportunity to avenge their first match defeat against India and clinch their maiden title. "Now we are the champions, so hopefully this win will boost Pakistan cricket and hopefully all playing nations is coming to Pakistan".

Defending champions India proved no match for Pakistan on Sunday, losing the much-awaited final game of the Champions Trophy by 180 runs at The Oval in London.

Amir, who received a five-year ban from all cricket and served three months in prison following a conviction for spot-fixing in 2010, removed Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.

"Congratulations to Team Pakistan on their great performance in winning #CT17 And how wonderful to watch Fakhar's raw talent in action", Imran Khan, who led Pakistan to their only One Day International (ODI) World Cup triumph, tweeted after the win.

With Pakistan's front-line pacer Mohammad Amir declared fit to play in the final after sitting out the previous match, he alongside new ball bowler Junaid Khan will be the key against India to provide their side with early breakthroughs.

"I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an wonderful tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have".

On Zaman, he said: "He's a great impact player, in his first ICC event, he played like a champion, he can be a great player for Pakistan". He hit the ball really well and turned the tables on the Indian bowlers.

Pakistan posted the tournament's highest total of 338 runs for the loss of four wickets in 50 overs.

Babar Azam joined Fakhar, who lofted Ravindra Jadeja over long-on for six and got to three figures by sweeping Ravichandran Ashwin to the boundary.

Fellow opener Azhar survived run out chances on 15 and 29.They made India pay for the let-off and misses.

June 14, Cardiff: Beat England by 8 wkts - Hasan, in the absence of the injured Amir (back spasm) produces a superb skilled display in taking three wickets as previously unbeaten tournament hosts England are dismissed for 211. Pakistan openers Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali came out with intent and scored the big runs from the word go. "The pitch was consistent throughout, we backed out strengths but wren't good enough". We didn't take them lightly. 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.

"Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli have been in tremendous form so I was looking for early wickets - and I did it", said Amir. I said when we arrived here, we have nothing to lose and we have nothing to lose today too.

Sarfraz was right to highlight one of the hurdles his side have overcome in recent times, with the country starved of global cricket since the terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in 2009 at Lahore that has left them playing nearly exclusively on neutral grounds.
