India wins toss, bowls first in Champions Trophy final

19 Junio 2017, 07:27 | Gerardo Tarin

Pakistan had come into the tournament as the lowest-ranked team and lost heavily to India in their opening group match but they beat South Africa and Sri Lanka to make the semi-finals where they knocked out hosts England.

Pakistan Captain Sarfraz Ahmed said after the match, "We played like we had nothing to lose, now we are champions. Amir bowled brilliantly but all my bowlers bowled really well". "We have a young team and credit to my boys". Fakhar Zaman brought up his first ODI ton and led Pakistan to a huge score.

128 The opening stand between Azhar Ali and Fakhar Zaman, Pakistan's first century stand for the first wicket against India in an ICC ODI event.

Pakistan's margin of victory is their biggest by runs in 129 ODIs against India.

The two spinners Ravichandran Ashwin (0/70 in 10 overs) and Ravindra Jadeja (0/67 in 8 overs) were then taken to the task with not a single wicket-taking delivery being bowled by the duo. However, support for the Indian team hasn't dwindled post Pakistan's upset win.

Such an advantage looked critical when Fakhar Zaman only escaped being caught behind for three runs when Jaspirit Bumrah was adjudged to have delivered a no ball.

The fourth, fifth and sixth overs were milked for 29 runs, after the first three had produced only eight.

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.

At the half-way point of their innings, Pakistan were 134 for one with Zaman and Babar Azam in the middle.

Even Golden Bat victor Shikhar Dhawan couldn't resist Amir's persistent accuracy, edging through outside off-stump, and when teenage spinner Shadab Khan successfully convinced Sarfraz Ahmed to review a "not out" lbw decision against Yuvraj Singh India's hopes were fading fast at 54-4. Hardik Pandya scored the most runs for his side at 76.

Pakistan's first global 50-over title since the 1992 World Cup reflected well on their Australian coach Mickey Arthur, who kept his squad from losing focus after their dismal display against the Indians earlier in the tournament.

"Early wickets are never good, especially in a chase", Kohli said.

Kohli accepted his side had been second best as he acknowledged Pakistan s "amazing tournament". "They made us make those mistakes because of the way they were bowling and the way they applied the pressure in the field, as well, and we have no hesitations or shame in admitting that we could not play our best game today".

The Indian captain had come into the match with an astonishing batting average of 253 runs in this year's tournament, having been dismissed only once in four matches. Complimented by contrasting styles, the conservative Azhar Ali and offensive Fakhar provide the flawless foil for each other.

The harum-scarum left-hander had already survived with just a single to his name when he pushed Bhuvneshwar Kumar to cover and would have been run out had Kedar Jadhav managed a direct hit.

Bowling: Amir 6-2-16-3; Junaid 6-1-20-1 (1w); Hafeez 1-0-13-0; Hasan 6.3-1-19-3; Shadab 7-0-60-2; Imad 0.3-0-3-0; Fakhar 3.3-0-25-0.
