Pakistan humiliates India by a 180 runs victory in ICC Champions Trophy final

What a great display of cricket by Pakistan cricket team today at The Oval, London when they beat India to win the ICC Cricket Champions Trophy 2017 by 180 runs.
Batting first, the Pakistani batsman showed their resilience against Indian bowlers and were undeterred to keep scoring without any fear. Fakhar Zaman (picture above) showed his mettle by scoring a ton and made 113 before being caught. Babar played well too but could not complete his half century and was caught at 46.

Hafeez and Imad were at crease when Hafeez hit sixes in plenty to take the score to 338 in 50 overs.

Coming to bat, two Indian fortresses fell for nothing, Sharma was LBW right on the second ball of the first over. Kohli the next man in was dropped at slip but was caught right on the next ball - both fortresses fell by superb bowling of Amir. But then there was no end - all major batsmen fell without crossing 30s. It was only Pandya, a bowler, who stood to his ground and scored 76 before being run out. India was all out for 158 in 33.3 overs.

Amir and Hassan took three wickets each, while Shadab took two wickets. Hassan also received the Golden Ball award for bagging most wickets throughout the tournament. He dismissed 13 players. He was also declared as the Player of the Tournament. Fakhar Zaman was declared the Man of the Match for his superb century (113).
Pakistan this won the final by 180 runs - a superb win over India which had unleashed a immense propaganda all over the media to downplay Pakistan. But Pakistan played a superb match and won over the arch rival Indians and won their first ever ICC Trophy Championship.
