Pakistan beat India by 180 runs to win the Champions Trophy title

It appeared India, chasing 339 to win, had had a lucky break when Kohli, the world's leading one-day worldwide batsman, was dropped on five by first slip Azhar Ali off Amir. Kohli looked to execute his trademark flick off the next ball only to get an edge; it flew to Shadab Khan at point.

India missed direct hits when it mattered, they bowled no-balls when batsman (read Fakhar Zaman) edged and got caught, bowled negative lines in pursuit of containing Pakistan openers and although Pandya hit some meaty blows to score a fastest half-century in ICC ODI event final, it was too little too late.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed: "After the India match when we lost in the group stage, I told my boys the tournament hadn't finished yet".

When teenage leg-spinner Shadab then struck in his first over via DRS, hitting Yuvraj Singh pad before bat, and MS Dhoni pulled Hasan Ali (three for 19) for a tumbling catch in the deep, India were washed up at 54 for five - and there was no realistic way back.

Pakistan thrashed arch-rivals India by 180 runs to win the worldwide cricket tournament at The Oval in London, U.K. on Sunday. There were two more off Fakhar, who had been pressed into service as an emergency left-arm spinner because of an injury to Imad Wasim.

Chasing 339 for victory, due in no small part to a disappointing bowling display, India sank to 158 all out in 30.3 overs.

Zaman and Azhar Ali (59) gave Pakistan a solid start at the beginning as the duo scored 128 runs in the opening stand.

If the 2017 Champions Trophy were to have had another two games, Pakistan might be scoring 750 and bowling teams out for negative 12 by the end of it. "No matter what they bring, we are believing in our abilities", Kohli said.

In the morning, after Pakistan had been invited to bat first, Zaman rode his luck.

It was the culmination of an impressive tournament from Pakistan who improved as the tournament went on after their poor opener against India.

Pandya had sped to 76 from 43 balls with Ravindra Jadeja a silent partner.

The photo has gone viral over social media right before the big game and it only is spreading some good positive vibes ahead. When we arrived here, we played like we had nothing to lose.

Platform set, MoM Zaman went on to crack 114 with Babar Azam and Mohammed Hafeez, 57 not out, taking Pakistan to a muscle-flexing 338 for four.

The war of words had always been there, but the curses, trolls, and uncalled for verbal volleys on social media have made an India-Pakistan tie into a very ugly affair in the recent past and it isn't much different in the build up to the ICCChampions Trophy final. He was eventually out when he sliced medium-pacer Pandya to Jadeja, running back from point. Credit to the team management for boosting us well.

While Sarfraz could hardly contain himself, India captain Virat Kohli was gracious despite the margin being an embarrassing (and unbelievable) 180 runs.
