Fakhar Zaman celebrates a fantastic hundred

Fakhar Zaman Pakistan India ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final

Following are five key moments that helped Pakistan win the Champions Trophy for the first time with a crushing 180-run victory over holders India at The Oval on Sunday.

Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day global (ODI) hundred was the cornerstone of Pakistan's 338 for four as they set title-holders and arch-rivals India a stiff chase to win the Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday.

India, who launched their title-defence with a 124-run thrashing of Pakistan, were unchanged from the side that hammered Bangladesh by nine wickets in Thursday's semi-final at Birmingham's Edgbaston.

Amir and Hasan Ali's three wickets each guided Pakistan to bowl out India for just 158 runs in 30.3 overs.

He dismissed three of the world's top (ODI) batsmen in Rohit Sharma (nought), India captain Virat Kohli (five) and Shikhar Dhawan (21) in a stunning new-ball spell.

Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day worldwide hundred laid the foundations for Pakistan's formidable total of 338-4. Here's how tweeple are showing their support for the Men in Blue: Many have even posted messages for Hardik Pandya who hit the fastest-ever half-century in any ICC tournament final. Pakistan played really well: "credit to them for winning the title today".

He had Ashwin caught by Sarfraz and forced Bumrah to lob another catch to the wicketkeeper, who pouched it gleefully to complete Pakistan's first Champions Trophy win.

One would never know what if Kohli had chosen to bat first and what if Jasprit Bumrah had not bowled an early no-ball.

"They made us make those mistakes because of the way they were bowling and the way they applied the pressure in the field and we have no hesitation or shame to admit that we could not play our best game today". The south Asian nation claimed their third ICC tournament, having earlier won the 50-over World Cup in 1992 and the World Twenty20 in 2009. Only once in Trophy history has a team batting first won the final; India in 2013.

India paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar, with an economical 1-44 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.

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

Fakhar zaman could have been out but that ball turned out to be a no ball from Bumrah and after that there was no looking back for the opening batsmen as he went on to score an unbelievable century which the world will remember for a long time.

He was eventually out when he sliced medium-pacer Pandya to Jadeja, running back from point. After Fakhar caused Azhar to be run out on 59, he took out his frustration on India, notably spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

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. In his 106-ball innings, Zaman hit 12 boundaries and three sixes.
