Pakistan thrash holders India to win Champions Trophy
Fakhar hit 12 fours and three sixes before skying a catch off Hardik Pandya but Pakistan, who upset hosts England in the semi-finals, had the ideal platform to make the highest total in a Champions Trophy final.
For a country that has not played global cricket at home against any top cricketing nation, the Champions Trophy triumph was necessary to "identify their heroes", feels Pakistan's chief coach Mickey Arthur.
Amir struck just three balls into India's reply when, after bowling two outswingers to Sharma, he had him lbw with a superb inswinger.
They were eventually dismissed for 158, with 19.3 overs to spare.
Hasan Ali only made his Pakistan debut in August 2016 and had just 16 one-day worldwide appearances to his name before the tournament.
India thrashed Pakistan 7-1 in the FIH World Hockey League semi-finals in London around the same time the cricket team outclassed the Indian team in the Champions Trophy final.
"It's been an up and down ride for us but I'm so proud of the boys", Arthur said. Pakistan's opening partnership of 128 between Azhar Ali and Zaman was instrumental as they put up a big score.
Pakistan, on the other hand, have also lived up to their "unpredictable" standards, with their comprehensive wins over South Africa and Sri Lanka after the first game debacle against Kohli & Co.
Praising Pakistan for their brilliant all-round performance in the Champions Trophy final here on Sunday, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said the green brigade can upset any team on their day. The way they turned things around, it was wonderful.
However, some of the Pakistan fans at The Oval went over the board with their celebrations and made some derogatory comments towards the Indian team which was returning to the dressing room after the loss. We dusted ourselves off after the India defeat in Edgbaston and came back superbly. "They were more intense, passionate and deserved to win".
"When we arrived here (in England), we were No 8 and now we are the champions", said the 30-year-old gloveman.
India played an unchanged XI from their 9 wicket win against Bangladesh in the semifinal while Pakistan made one change with the fit-again Mohammad Amir replacing the rookie Rumman Raees.
Cricket fans should be able to see more of Amir during the second half of the summer, as he is due to take up a deal with Essex. He can be heard saying, "when they say it we accept so when we say, why can't they?"

The Spaniard dominated the summit clash completely and didn't allow the third seeded player to stage a comeback into the match. The 30-year-old is hoping his performance at Roland Garros is a sign he is getting back to that level.
