Pakistan crowned 2017 Champions Trophy winners

SHARE:

A maiden ODI century by Fakhar Zaman and a breath-taking spell of new ball bowling by fast bowler Mohammad Amir helped Pakistan crush arch-rivals India in the final at The Oval on Sunday as they lifted the ICC Champions Trophy for the first time.

India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and opted for bowl first, but his decision back-fired as the Men in Green took full advantage of the perfect batting conditions by posting a mammoth 339-run target in their allotted 50 overs.

The star of the show was young opener Fakhar, who scored a whirlwind 114 off just 106 balls with the help of 12 fours and three sixes.

He was well-supported by fellow opener Azhar Ali (59) and veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez (57 not out), who contributed timely half-centuries.


Chasing a record 339 to defend their title, India were rocked early, thanks to fiery spell by Amir, who claimed the Men in Blues’ first three wickets in his opening five overs.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya gave a glimmer of hope to Kohli’s men with a quick-fire 76 off 43 laced with six massive sixes, but it was not enough as Sarfraz Ahmed’s men defeated their rivals by 180 runs to lift the trophy.

Zaman was awarded man of the match for his outstanding batting performance, whereas Hasan Ali was named the best bowler of the tournament.
