Pakistan demolish India to win maiden Champions Trophy title

19 Junio 2017, 05:01 | Gerardo Tarin

Bottom-ranked Pakistan produced a breathtaking display at London s Oval on Sunday in the climax of a tournament featuring the world s top eight one-day worldwide nations. Just two weeks ago, Pakistan were at a low ebb after crashing to a humiliating 124-run defeat against India in the group stage.

India, on the other hand, who played to their potential throughout the tournament, were struggling against the disciplined Pakistani batting lineup and failed to utilise the conditions completely. "As the tournament goes on, at some point we will reach the final stage".

But Sharma was out for a duck off the third ball, Kohli went for 5, and Dhawan, the player of the 2013 tournament and a candidate for this one, was out for 21.

Pakistan bowler Hasan Ali won the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy Golden Ball award for the top bowler of the tournament.

A section of Indian cricket fans reacted to Pakistan's convincing victory over India in the final of the Champions Trophy on Sunday by smashing television sets in protest but the Indian captain was sporting in defeat, congratulating the Pakistani side for its performance and acknowledging that the Indian team would have to learn from its mistakes and move on.

Fakhar makes a confident 31 on ODI debut and Pakistan are well ahead of where they need to be, at 119 for three off 27 overs, when rain sees them win under the Duckworth/Lewis rule.

The Indian captain conceded that they needed to check the extras, 13 wides and three no balls. They played fielders' cricket.

India then lost two wickets for no runs in four balls to be 54 for five inside 14 overs.

Preview: A wounded Pakistan will be out for revenge while India will aim to maintain their dominance when the arch-rivals meet in the final of the Champions Trophy cricket tournament at The Oval in London on Sunday. Ali is also the first bowler to take four successive three-wicket hauls in the Champions Trophy.

Earlier, India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and invited his Pakistani counterpart Sarfraz Ahmed to bat first. The collapse continued when left-handed opener Dhawan was caught behind off Amir by Sarfraz.

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

Put in to bat by Kohli, Pakistan rode on an aggressive 114 from youngster Fakhar Zaman, who made the most of an early reprieve.

The bowling department for India under the likes of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin have looked solid bowling economically while providing clinical breakthroughs.

# Mohammed Hafeez scored an unbeaten 57 off 37 deliveries to help Pakistan post a challenging total of 338/4.

Shadab picked up his second wicket when Kedar Jadhav, on nine, gave Sarfraz a simple catch and India appeared to be crumbling meekly at 72 for six.

In only his fourth one-day global at the age of 27, after his debut just 11 days ago, Fakhar overcame his nervy start to unfurl a series of increasingly assured strokes among his 12 fours and two sixes in a 92-ball century.
