It was hard to counter Zaman's batting style: Kohli

India vs Pakistan ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final IND vs PAK India Pakistan

India won the toss and chose to put Pakistan into bat - a decision that turned out to be a bad call. Zaman (114), playing his first ODI against India, fourth in his career, went after the bowlers trying to play the inside-out shots. Ali scored 59 before Mohammed Hafeez provided a late burst with 37-ball 57.

13 Wickets for Hasan Ali, which makes him the joint leading wicket-taker in any Champions Trophy tournament.

Chasing a mammoth 339, India began their proceedings in the most dismal fashion. But while trying to slog the medium pacer Hardik Pandy's delivery, Zaman was caught by Ravindra Jadeja, who ran from the point to take a brilliant catch at the square on the off-side in the 34th over.

After India had won the toss, Fakhar, on three, was caught by wicketkeeper Mahehdra Singh Dhoni off a Jasprit Bumrah no-ball and the 27-year-old left-hander took full advantage to make his first global century.

Talking at prize distribution ceremony, he said we have played for victory and all bowlers and batsmen have played their due role in the match as per strategy.

India captain Virat Kohli says Fakhar Zaman s cavalier approach was hard to counter as 80 percent of his "high risk shots" came off well during the Champions Trophy final against Paksitan, here today.

"After the India match I said to my boys, the tournament is not finished yet".

The Pakistan bowling corps engineered a spectacular collapse of India's top order, sending Rohit Sharma, Kohli and tournament high-scorer Shikhar Dhawan back to the dressing room within the first 15 overs.

But so did Pakistan, who restricted their last three opponents to below 240.

Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq on Twitter: "Congratulations to the Pakistan team and the whole country for such a great win. We want to be more consistent as a team".

After leaving India reeling on six for two following the dismissals of Sharma and Kohli, Amir's figures read 1.4 overs, four runs, two wickets.

Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali made the ideal start for Pakistan even with Zaman "losing" his wicket only for it to be a no-ball and India missing out on a run-out all before the opener reached 10.

Turning to the coin, India won the toss and Virat Kohli opted to bowl first.

When teenage leg-spinner Shadab then struck in his first over via DRS, hitting Yuvraj Singh pad before bat, and MS Dhoni pulled Hasan Ali (three for 19) for a tumbling catch in the deep, India were washed up at 54 for five - and there was no realistic way back. Pandya (76, 43 balls) was dealing in boundaries at that point, having already hammered six sixes and four fours.

"I think people should now stop saying that Pakistan can't beat India in major events", he said.

"Fakhar is a great impact player, he played like a champion batsman today".
