Pakistan beat India to lift Champions Trophy

India had a disappointing day with both the bat and the ball, as Pakistan completely dominated the match.

Pakistan's biggest ODI win over India in terms of runs was largely down to Fakhar Zaman's century.

Amir bowled brilliantly today but all my bowlers bowled really well.

Babar came out of the opener's shadows - but after Shoaib Malik and he holed out in the off-side deep, Hafeez (57 not out) hit four fours and three sixes to power well past the 300 benchmark required against India's powerhouse batting line-up in these run-fest conditions.

Should India have gone with four seamers?

To add insult to injury, India bowled 13 wides and three no-balls in what was a woeful day for all, save Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/44 in 10 overs). After the game, India skipper Virat Kohli had explained that he made a decision to go with just one spinner, as the Pakistanis have players who generally are good players of spin bowling. This will be the legacy we leave behind, that we beat India in the final.

India were below par with the ball with the duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja remaining wicketless in their spells.

Captain Kohli will also look to use off-break spinner Kedar Jadhav - who took two vital wickets in his previous match against Bangladesh - alongside Hardik Pandya to deceive the Pakistan batsmen.

On Zaman, he said: "He's a great impact player, in his first ICC event, he played like a champion, he can be a great player for Pakistan". Rohit Sharma had gone in his first over, trapped in front by a ball that nipped back.

The last few overs saw Hafeez thrashing Indian bowlers all around the park.

In Amir's second over, Kohli was dropped at slip.

Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli have been exceptional with the bat so far, this season. He scored 22 runs.

Nearly half of the score was made by Hardik Pandya with a gutsy 43-ball 76.

There was no looking back after that and was liberal help from all the Indian bowlers, who erred in length, gave away needless extras to release the pressure completely.In humid conditions and on flattest of decks, Kohli made a decision to field first but his bowlers did not do justice to the faith he had shown in them.

Kohli rued India's failure to string partnerships together. They romped home by 180 runs, outplaying on every register superstar opponents fed by a powerhouse domestic scene, but cowed here into a horribly flaccid heap of wafts and nibbles.

"The way they turned things around for themselves speaks volumes of the talent that they have in their side". Experienced players like Dhoni or Yuvraj could have played the sheet-anchor role, while Pandya went on his blitzkrieg.

It is the first time that corrupt mafia was being probed in the country, he said.
