INDIA LOSE ICC CHAMPIONS TROPHY TO PAKISTAN

Pakistan thrashes India to win Champions Trophy

When Azhar Ali was dismissed for 59 off 61 balls, it was Fakhar who was to be blamed for the run-out.

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.

"Chasing 300 plus has always been a challenging task for any team, when our batting was strong why Kohli hadn't batted first and put Pakistan under pressure", he added.

338 Pakistan's total, their highest in any tournament final, and their second-highest in an ODI against India. Fakhar, who scored his maiden ODI century in style with a four off the 31st over, was awarded Player of the Match.

"When a guy like Azhar Ali, who is a conventional batsman, plays his shots, you can still have a plan".

Pakistan recovered splendidly from the loss to India in the first league game to win all the remaining matches.

Fakhar capitalised on a huge piece of fortune early in proceedings - he was caught from a Jasprit Bumrah no-ball when on three - but rode his luck to pummel the Indian attack to all parts.

"After the (first) India match, one thing I said to my boys was "the tournament hasn't finished yet", Sarfraz told reporters. Idiots! In actual fact, Mohammad Amir would decapitate the India innings in a scintillating opening burst that brought him the scalps of each of the top three, and then by the middle of the 14th over, India would be 54 for 5, the trophy basically handed over.

Pakistan Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has congratulated the nation for historical victory in the final match of ICC Champion Trophy. "They have been brilliant, and my fellow coaching staff and management team have been fantastic, as well", a sense of satisfaction was palpable in his voice. A bolt so ridiculously good that this Pakistan performance reminded everyone of their glory days, when Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Saeed Anwar and Inzaman-ul-Haq ran the show. He took his aim at off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in the next over, smashing one over long-on, ran for three but it should have been a four through the covers and a late cut for four down to third man.

He was eventually out when he sliced medium-pacer Hardik Pandya and Jadeja, running back from point, held a well-judged catch.

Pakistan post a mammoth total of 338 against India. But the more consistent you get in learning from games like this, it s better for the team in the future. When we arrived here, we just played like we have nothing to lose.

"We can't take anyone lightly but they were more intense and passionate on the day".

Captain Kohli said: "I want to congratulate Pakistan and their supporters".
