Pakistan have won the Champions Trophy cricket final after beating their arch-rivals India by 180 runs at the Oval ground in Britain's capital, London.

Star Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir then produced a fiery spell to push India on the back foot as Men In Blue couldn't recover from their early losses.

Credit goes to him, he was playing his first ICC event, and he played like a champion player. "Lay off!" He used Pakistan's cricketing win over India to repeat the worn out line "united we shall defend Pakistan against all threats our enemies hatch" with images of "valiant soldiers of Pakistan congratulating Team Pakistan and the nation".

Yes, as you may have guessed, I am talking about the most unpredictable team in world cricket, the Pakistan cricket team, the heartbeat of millions of Pakistani's, a sign of hope and happiness for its followers. However, they looked down and out when Shadab Khan (2-60) accounted for Yuvraj and Kedar Jadhav (9) while Hasan Ali (4) removed the key wicket of MS Dhoni (4).

India were the lopsided favorites to win a record third Trophy in a record fourth final, but Pakistan blew away all predictions and expectations with a win of stunning ease.


"Some people in Mohad village raised slogans in favour of Pakistan and also burst crackers on Sunday night after Pakistan defeated India in the finals of the Champions Trophy", Sanjay Pathak, officer in-charge of Shahpur police station, told IANS. Talking about his bowlers, Kohli said, "With the ball, we could have had more wicket-taking opportunities".

India, on the other hand, who played to their potential throughout the tournament, were struggling against the disciplined Pakistani batting lineup and failed to utilise the conditions completely. Later Mohammad Hafeez helped his side to post 300 plus total with 57 from 37 balls.

"After the India (group) match I said to my boys, the tournament is not finished yet". But a world class bowler by the same name, the player we were expecting to see, returned to the world stage only during this tournament. Congratulations to Pakistan. The way they turned things around, it was incredible. He ended up with a knock of 76 runs off 43 balls.

TV anchors and former players throwing verbal jibes at each other on air was also a prominent part of the whole tournament. Shikhar Dhawan threatened to pull India back into the game, but with the score on 33, Amir got a length ball to lift outside the off stump and Sarfraz Ahmed pouched the first of his four catches. "It seems players are not convinced and they don't want it to change", he said.

"You can't take anyone lightly, we never take anyone lightly, we gave it our best shot but they were just more intense and more passionate on the day".
