Pakistan Beat India To Win ICC Champions Trophy

19 June 2017

A brilliant innings of 76 off 43 balls from Hardik Pandya which raised hopes of the Indian team after they were reduced 72 for the loss of six wickets went in vain.

Zaman reached his first one-day global hundred - in only his fifth match - with a powerful sweep.

Dhawan was out to an Amir cross seamer, and India was 33-3.

India and Pakistan have got 18 wickets each from their four matches between overs 11 and 40. Pakistan's 31 wickets are the most taken by any team in the Champions Trophy.

Earlier, Mohammad Amir tore apart the famed Indian top three, shaking India to the core as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan headed back to the pavilion.

# Yuvraj Singh scored 22 before he was dismissed LBW by Shadab Khan via DRS. The rates go as per '157 over '100 on India and if Pakistan wins, the rates go far more higher with Rs 300 per Rs 100.

With that in mind, the 30-year-old knows he must maximise his chances of adding to his haul of three Grand Slam crowns while he is at his peak.

Lastly, there is no reason why fans in both nations can not watch a Pakistan-India match for the sake of cricket itself - meaning that they appreciate a fine performance by a Fakhar Zaman or a Virat Kohli regardless of the colour of the jersey donned by the player.

A distinct similarity has been the roles of Inzamam-ul-Haq, who had just made his ODI debut in 1991, and Fakhar Zaman who like Inzamam played a crucial knock in the semis. Kohli's decision to bowl first proved ineffective as Pakistan openers shared a 128-run stand. This is only the second time the same has happened outside Asia.

Gavaskar is spot-on about the two glitches in India's strong armour right now: their fielding and their fifth bowler.

The game appeared to be taking a predictable turn when Bumrah seemed to have nicked Fakhar to the keeper in the fourth over.

"The belief just showed on the field the way they played together as a team and regardless of who you play in the finals, it's always going to be challenging because once you start thinking that it's a big game, then your mindset changes".

The team had a firm grounding with 56 runs on the board by the end of the first 10 overs, as the two openers scored from both sides, turning up the pressure on the Indian side.

Zaman finally perished on 114 when he played a slog shot off Jasprit Bumrah but got a top edge on it and was caught brilliantly by Ravindra Jadeja at backward point region.

Shoaib Malik couldn't last long at the crease when Bhuvneshwar Kumar scalped him for 12.

Amir's return bolsters an already impressive Pakistan pace attack featuring Hasan Ali, the tournament's leading wicket-taker.

Karachi:Former World Cup winning captain, Imran Khan said Pakistan have got a golden opportunity in the Champions Trophy final to avenge its humiliating defeat to India in their first match of the tournament.

Coach Mickey Arthur feels that reaching the final isn't good enough as they can walk that extra step to lay their hands on the coveted trophy. "We are excited to be playing in the final and we'll treat this as any other knockout game", Sarfraz said.
