ICC Champions Trophy

ICC Champions Trophy

After losing their opening game against India by 145 runs, they staged a remarkable turnaround, winning their next three games against Sri Lanka, South Africa and England, in the semifinal, quite convincingly.

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.

Amir struck just three balls into India s reply when, after bowling two outswingers to Sharma, he had him lbw with an inswinger.

Little went right for them, in fact, from the moment Kohli put Pakistan in on a glorious morning. Ali scored 59 before Mohammed Hafeez provided a late burst with 37-ball 57.

Fakhar, a former sailor in the Pakistan navy, underpinned his side's innings with a classy century after being handed a reprieve on just three when he was caught behind off a Jasprit Bumrah no-ball. It was the sort of start the Pakistan batsmen were looking for and they got it with a bit of assistance from the Indian bowlers.

It was compelling shot-a-ball viewing, several not necessarily despatched in the intended direction.

Azhar had to go, with his partner static in the non-striker's crease, after Bumrah pulled off an unexpectedly brilliant stop at midwicket.

He scripted the fastest half-century in a world One-Day International (ODI) final, reaching the landmark in 32 deliveries with three consecutive sixes off leg-spinner Shadab Khan. The way Hardik [Pandey] was hitting we thought we can take the game deep.

The veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez then played some eye-catching strokes alongside Imad Wasim, promoted ahead of Sarfraz Ahmed, to take Pakistan to a highly competitive 338.

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. [Fakhar innings?] He's a great impact player, in his first ICC event, he played like a champion, he can be a great player for Pakistan.

8th final for Yuvraj Singh in ICC tournaments, the most by any player in his career. I am happy with the brand of cricket we have been playing and want to continue the momentum. After the game, India skipper Virat Kohli had explained that he chose to go with just one spinner, as the Pakistanis have players who generally are good players of spin bowling.

"The whole group kept believing".

Fakhar Zaman was the beneficiary of the Indian largesse and he ensured the Indian team paid the price for it, as much as for their wayward bowling.

They had an unbelievable tournament.

"The way they turned things around for themselves speaks volumes of the talent that they have in their side".

"We can be very proud of that as a unit and we leave here with our heads held high because we understand the kind of expectations and pressures we face as a team".
