Ton for Fakhar Zaman as Pakistan flay Indian bowlers

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:51

There was no way back for India, who collapsed to 158 all out with almost 20 overs of the match as they suffered their heaviest defeat by runs in 129 ODIs against Pakistan.

Pakistan produced a story for the ages as they defied all pre-tournament predictions and thrashed their much-fancied rivals, India, to win the Champions Trophy. Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman's century 114 off 106 helped his side put a huge total on the scoreboard.

Fakhar Zaman couldn't resist the length ball outside off stump, so he poked at it and only nicked it.

The replay showed medium-pacer Jasprit Bumrah overstepped.

The left-handed opener was struggling to get going and was caught by MS Dhoni off Bumrah in the fourth over, but it turned out to be a no ball.

The left-hander failed to let the horror mix-up deter him - striking Ravindra Jadeja for six over long on and following up with a brace of boundaries as Pakistan raced up to 150 in the 26th over.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said he hoped his side s stunning 180-run Champions Trophy final win over arch-rivals India would be a catalyst for the full return of global cricket to his homeland. Fakhar even got in some spin bowling, stepping in when an injured Imad Wasim couldn't finish the 20th over.

Only Hardik Panya put together a significant innings for India with 76 off of 43 balls, but after the top three combined for only 26 - including Sharma's first-over duck - India would need far more to make the game competitive.

Zaman was named man of the match.


Middle-order batsman Mohammad Hafeez then joined Azam but this time the Pakistani duo failed to click as India skipper Virat Kohli's ploy to bring back spinner Jadhav clicked.

"I want to congratulate Pakistan first, they had an incredible tournament".

For a team that can't play worldwide cricket at home due to security issues, the victory has far-reaching implications.

"I hope this win will boost Pakistan cricket and hopefully all the (major) playing nations will come to Pakistan", said Sarfraz. This time also the chances are bringht for Team India for its 14th victory against Pakistan in ICC tournaments across all formats.

Special arrangements were made to broadcast the final live in community halls, cinemas and parks. "We've been through [his past] before but what I do know is that Amir is a big-match player".

It was a remarkable turnaround of form for Pakistan, ranked No. 8 in the eight-team tournament.

Coach Micky Arthur praised the spirit of his side after they bounced back from a humiliating defeat to India at the start of the tournament to beat Sri Lanka, South Africa and England before the final.

India was asked to produce the highest successful run chase in Trophy history, and had the weapons to do it. "Just the other way round.??" tweeted commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, a former India test cricketer.
