Pakistan beat India by 180 runs, win ICC Champions Trophy 2017

India won the toss and opted to bowl against their arch-rivals Pakistan in the high-octane final of the Champions Trophy at the Kennington Oval here on Sunday.

It was Pakistan's first global 50-over title since the 1992 World Cup and a sweet moment for a team who have been unable to host worldwide cricket in recent years due to security concerns.

13 Wickets for Hasan Ali, which makes him the joint leading wicket-taker in any Champions Trophy tournament. Zaman attacked, Azhar Ali anchored and India's bowlers tried and tried to no avail, the breakthrough finally coming through a run-out in which Zaman left Ali stranded more than halfway down the pitch.

Even spinner R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja failed to shine in the crucial final.

But the rest of the much acclaimed Indian batting line-up staged a spectacular collapse and were reduced to 72/6 in the 17th over.

Once Amir had devoured the three in a superb opening spell of six overs, it virtually ended the match as a contest.

Amir was nearly unplayable at times. 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.

Kohli, the world's top-ranked one-day batsman, had been dropped off the previous delivery in the slips and the India fans looked shell-shocked as he trudged off.

Azhar also continued his fine form in the tournament, reaching his fifty off 61 balls before he was run out following a mix-up with his partner. It got inexorably out of hands for Virat Kohli's side once Mohammad Amir dealt lethal blows in his first two overs.

But this crazy-good Pakistan side had other ideas.

By the time Pandya was run out in the 27th over following a awful mix-up, the match was as good as done and dusted.

Security personnel were deployed today outside former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's house in Jharkhand's capital Ranchi, after India were outclassed by a resurgent Pakistan in the final of the 2017 Champions Trophy.

"It's a great, great team effort from where we came from because we knew after losing the first game [in the group stage to India], we were nowhere". He has made a confidence to India Team during amidst of the play and Pakistan Team Shut down his performance with a Run Out.

"After the India match I said to my boys, the tournament is not finished yet".

Pakistan got off to a tentative start after being inserted.

"When the game is on the line, the more he performs, the more amped up he gets". Played like a champion batsman. Azam, who was previously supporting Zaman, now took the charge and played freely.

"I think it'll be massive (for Pakistan cricket)", Arthur said. Pandya did provide a little hope with his 76 runs helping take the reigning champions from 72-6 to 152-7. His 52-ball knock comprised of four boundaries. Atotal of 350 was on cards at that point and the fact that the Indian bowlers denied that to Pakistan can be no consolation for Kohli. In the process, Pakistan crossed the 300 run mark with Hafeez slamming a huge six over deep square leg in the 46th over off pacer Kumar. He added 71 for in 7.3 overs with Imad Wasim (25 no off 21).
