Nation rages as Pak defeats arch-rival India in Champions Trophy

19 Junio 2017, 09:46 | Gerardo Tarin

Amir was nearly unplayable at times.

"We just had to keep believing. they kept on believing, trusting their roles (and) trusting the gameplan that "Saffy" (Sarfraz) and I had set up".

If we talk about the last eight years, India has won two ICC tournaments - 2011 World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy.

An elated Sarfraz added: "After the India match when we lost in the group stage, I told my boys the tournament hadn t finished yet".

Amir took out all three of India's premier batsmen, bowled a maiden for figures of 6-2-16-3, then watched as his teammates mopped up.

India had their task cut-out after Pakistan scored 338 and any chances of a thrilling chase were nipped in the bud as a charged up Mohammad Amir produced one of his finest spells against India.

"So you can only do so much, as I said, as a bowler and as a captain when that is happening", Kohli did sound a tad helpless trying to explain Zaman's performance.

For Hasan the acclaim was well deserved, he ended as leading wicket-taker in the competition, fittingly finishing things off when he got Jasprit Bumrah caught behind - the match, the day and the tournament destined to be never anything else but belonging to Pakistan.

Amir, fired up, got Sharma lbw.

Kohli, the world's top-ranked one-day batsman, had been dropped off the previous delivery in the slips and the India fans looked shell-shocked as he trudged off. The left-handed opener was struggling to get going and was caught by MS Dhoni off Bumrah in the fourth over, but it turned out to be a no ball.

India continued to lose wickets at the regular intervals.

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.

With its win, Pakistan, which came into the tournament ranked No. 8 in the world, has clinched its first Champions Trophy victory.

Later in the innings, Hardik Pandya, who put some resistance with a quick-fire 76 off 43 balls, was run out in the 27th over, thus, bringing an end to a famed Indian batting line-up. But just when it seemed that he was blazing towards a first worldwide century, he was run out after a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja.

Earlier, Fakhar rode his luck after Kohli sent Pakistan into bat at a sun-drenched Oval. India paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar, with an economical one for 44 in 10 overs, helped atone for some wayward bowling by his team-mates in an innings featuring 13 wides and three no-balls - almost three extra overs.

Fakhar, the man-of-the-match, shared an opening stand of 128 with Azhar Ali (59).

But the run-out Pakistan's openers had pair had threatened arrived when Fakhar's failure to respond to Azhar's call saw the former ODI captain fall by a distance.

Any thought of the unlikeliest of victories was snuffed out when Pandya was run out by the length of the pitch after a mix-up with Jadeja. Azam (46), Mohammad Hafeez (57 not out) and Imad Wasim (25 not out) then made sure Pakistan reached insurmountable total.
