19 Junio 2017, 09:34 | Crisanna Felipe

India replied with a paltry 158 all-out in 30.3 overs. A few Pakistan fans stormed the ground to greet their cricketing heroes only to be neutralised by the bouncers on the ground. The way they turned things round speaks volumes for the talent they have.

Kohli said: "They can upset anyone on their day".

Title-holders India boast a powerful top order including star batsman Kohli but the skipper, explaining his decision to field at a sun-drenched Oval, said: "We will try and exploit the even grass and it is better to bowl first". But Pakistan supposed weakest suit shone bright as they built the platform for a formidable total.

"The whole group kept believing, we knew we were better than what we showed in the first game against India".

Meanwhile, reflecting on India's tournament as a whole, Kohli insisted: "We can (still) be very proud. and we leave here with our heads held high. We will take that on the chin and move on", concluded the 28-year-old.

Pakistan was the last team to qualify for the Trophy, the lowest-ranked at eighth out of eight, and written off after its opening loss to India by 124 runs.

But Kohli (5), the big match player did not get going, along with Rohit Sharma (0) and Shikhar Dhawan (21), and the defending never came back into the game after that.

All three were gone after nine overs, five of them fierce seam bowling by Mohammad Amir, who was passed fit to play after missing the surprise semifinal victory over England because of a back spasm. "But he was run out in a awful mix-up", said Kohli, who scored five before becoming the second victim of a fired-up Mohammad Amir.

The momentum remained with Pakistan as Mohammad Hafeez pummelled three sixes and four fours, putting on an unbroken 71 with Imad Wasim (25no) who enjoyed a remarkable slice of luck when a delivery from Bumrah bounced forcefully off his wicket without dislodging a bail.

The form of Hassan Ali and Junaid Khan has been wonderful and will hope that continues.

Virat Kohli won the toss and put Pakistan in to bat first.

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.

Except Bhuvneshwar Kumar, all other Indian bowlers struggled badly to give some challenge to the opponents.

Ali played smartly and contributed 59 runs in his 71-ball knock. He landed a series of fatal blows with the new ball, pinning big-scoring opener Rohit Sharma off what was just the third ball of the Indian innings.

Ashwin, who has played more than 100 ODIs since 2010, conceded 45 runs off 33 balls to Fakhar, the most one man has taken off him in ODIs.
