Mohammad Amir fit for Champs Trophy final

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:31

Pakistani cricket fans celebrate their team's victory in the Champions Trophy final against India, at a street in Peshawar, Pakistan.

They have not just defied logic, they have spat in logic's face, questioned the moral inclinations of its parents, kicked it in the shins, put it in a headlock, strangled it unconscious, then shoved it into the mud and set its pants on fire.

Giles Clarke, the president of the England and Wales Cricket Board and head of the ICC's Pakistan task force said, in comments reported by the Guardian in March: "The desire is to give the cricket-starved Pakistani supporters the chance to see some of the world's finest players in live action".

Pakistan, made to bat first for the first time in the tournament, racked up a final-record innings of 338-4, founded on a 128-run opening stand between Fakhar Zaman, who earned his maiden one-day global century with 114, and Azhar Ali, whom Fakhar ran out on 59.

He was more aggressive after his century before a top-edge off an attempted pull ended his innings exactly 30 overs after he had started his charmed second. Idiots! In actual fact, Mohammad Amir would decapitate the India innings in a scintillating opening burst that brought him the scalps of each of the top three, and then by the middle of the 14th over, India would be 54 for 5, the trophy basically handed over. Kohli himself threw caution to the winds after surviving a dropped catch at slips. Seems like we are playing in Pakistan and thanks to all those who supported. But it may as well have been 180 million, so dominant were Pakistan in this match.

Pakistan smashed the highest total in a Champions Trophy final - 338-4 that included a maiden century from opener Fakhar Zaman - after being made to bat first by defending champion India at The Oval on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Pakistan have made one change in the squad.

But Kohli knows it will be folly to take a win against Pakistan as given. Not only did they need wickets in hand, but they also needed to score the quick runs.

The victory, and its relative ease over an India team that not only had got the better of Pakistan in one-day matches for the past decade, winning 12 and losing only eight - and winning four of the last five since 2013 - stunned cricket fans and experts, especially coming from a Pakistan team that has played only one worldwide series in its home country since a 2009 terrorist attack forced them to adopt the United Arab Emirates as their home turf.


The lowest-ranked team in the eight-nation one-day worldwide tournament, their group campaign started with a 124-run thrashing by India at Edgbaston on June 4.

Kohli opted to field first Sunday after winning the toss on a typically good pitch at a sun-drenched Oval.

It started on a wrong note when a attractive delivery from Jasprit Bumrah was nicked by an edgy Zaman only to be called "no-ball" due to overstepping.

But the umpires checked for a no-ball and replays showed Bumrah had over-stepped.

"Can never tell in a chase what's going to happen".

Bumrah's first three overs cost 24 runs, including four wides.

When Rohit departed, there was belief that Kohli might come to rescue.

Fakhar lofted Ravindra Jadeja over long-on for six and got to three figures by sweeping Ravichandran Ashwin to the boundary.

He was eventually out when he sliced medium-pacer Hardik Pandya and Jadeja, running back from point, held a well-judged catch.
