Pakistan wins Champions Trophy, crushes arch-rival India

The previous best was 14, which happened during New Zealand versus U.S. match in 2004. In ODIs, he has scored 18 runs in 42 balls for one dismissal, and in T20Is he has scored only one runs in seven balls, and been dismissed twice.
Even for a side that is routinely unpredictable, even for a team with a long history of starting slowly then making a white-hot charge through a tournament, what Pakistan have pulled off at the 2017 Champions Trophy is some diamond-studded, galactic-scale nonsense.
Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali finished as the highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 13 scalps.
On a flat deck, Kohli surprised everyone opting to field, a decision prompted by the current team's ability to chase any target.
Most of all though, India lost because their spinners fell way short of the standards they had set while winning this trophy in 2013. A guy hitting a good shot is something that after a stage it s not in your control as you have already bowled the ball but conceding extras is something that we can control as a team, he said. They proved it again, they can upset anyone on their day, disappointing for us but I have a smile on my face because we played well to reach the final. "This is the first ICC event for many of these players". He broke Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene's joint-record of 7.
This was the biggest margin of victory in any ICC ODI tournament in terms of runs.
Put into bat, the Men in Green had a flawless start as both Azhar Ali and Zaman shared a 128-run opening stand to put their team on road of a massive first innings-score. The first was by Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar for 141 against New Zealand in 2000. This is their worst streak of defeats in final against Pakistan.
"It's a great team effort".
The 27-year-old Fakhar, however, put the setback behind him to complete a 92-ball hundred when he swept star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin for his 12th four.
Pakistan Captain Sarfraz Ahmed said after the match, "We played like we had nothing to lose, now we are champions".
10 centuries have been scored in this Champions Trophy, the joint-most in single edition along with 2002.
The sixth century in a Trophy final ended in the 34th over with Pakistan at 200-2. Fakhar became the 1st batsman to achieve this feat.
Zaman's 114 led Pakistan to a commendable 338 for 4, which they defended successfully. Jadeja took four in five matches, and conceded almost six an over.
Babar came out of the opener's shadows, but after Shoaib Malik and he holed out in the off-side deep, Hafeez (57no) hit four fours and three sixes to turn Pakistan's promise into the 300-plus substance required against India's powerhouse batting line-up in these run-fest conditions. A bolt so ridiculously good that this Pakistan performance reminded everyone of their glory days, when Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Saeed Anwar and Inzaman-ul-Haq ran the show.

Thomas makes history in US Open third round
Two years ago, he carded a 29 on the back nine of the final round at Chambers Bay, equaling the lowest nine-hole score in U.S. Open? At Rancho Mirage in early April, Thompson was given the four-shot penalty with six holes to play in the final round.

That's how highly I think of Fultz. "I had some stuff going on with my knee - I don't really want to address it", Fultz said. Fultz ended his freshman season averaging 23.2 points, 5.8 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.
