Pakistan rout India to clinch Champions Trophy

ICC World T20 Delayed Till 2020, Know Why

Pakistan's historic win over India in Champions Trophy finale has not only lifted the team to number six position but also boosted the rankings of the young match-winning heroes. These numbers indicate their utter dominance in the two biggest games of the tournament, against two of the toughest opponents: they beat England by eight wickets with 77 balls to spare in the semi-finals, and thrashed India by 180 runs in the final. Pakistan bowled first in its previous four Trophy matches, and only once in Trophy history has a team batting first won the final; India in 2013.

"I'm sure the nation of Pakistan is really happy tonight because they deserve it. Let's hope this really kick-starts the momentum in Pakistan again".

Amir also had Shikhar Dhawan (21) caught behind with a cross-seam delivery, teenage leg-spinner Shadab Khan trapped Yuvraj Singh (22) lbw on review and India were doomed when MS Dhoni (4) was caught on the pull for four off Hasan Ali - the tournament's leading wicket-taker.

An impressive 128-run opening stand between Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali helped Pakistan amass a mammoth 338-run total to comfortably overpower arch-rivals India by 180 runs to clinch the ICC Champions Trophy title at Kennington Oval on Sunday.

In reply, India were all out for 158 runs in 30.3 overs.

Pakistan, ominously made to bat first - the team batting first lost six of the seven previous finals - racked up a final-record innings of 338-4, founded on a 128-run opening stand between Fakhar Zaman, who earned his maiden one-day global century with 114, and Azhar Ali, whom Fakhar helped to run out on 59.

Earlier, Fakhar rode his luck after Kohli sent Pakistan into bat at a sun-drenched Oval. Credit to Pakistan. They outplayed us.

Equally importantly, it was the first time it defeated India in an ICC event since 2009, and only the third time ever.

Zaman was named man of the match.

He was finally out in the 34th over, scoring 114 off 106 balls, including 12 boundaries and three sixes.

For once Virat Kohli was not the brash and aggressive captain that he has been known to be. Pakistan made sure it did not turn out to be a costly mistake, though, as Amir dismissed him with the next ball.

The South African-born mentor wants his team to get some structure and become more consistent as they came into this tournament as the lowest-ranked side. He was picked for the Champions Trophy squad, missed the opening loss to India so didn't have any nightmares to process, then scored 31, 50, and 57 to cement his place.
