Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Amir orchestrate Pakistan's Champions Trophy triumph

It was then over to Amir, who quickly dispelled the predictions of many that India could pull off a tournament and ground-record run chase - in the process silencing the majority support in a sell-out crowd for this high-profile showdown as their team folded to 158 all out in 30.3 overs.

Mohammad Hafeez whacked 57 not out off 37 balls, Babar Azam 46, and Imad Wasim 25 not out, as the last 10 overs netted 91 runs, giving Pakistan's bowlers - its strength - an impressive total to defend. But while trying to slog the medium pacer Hardik Pandy's delivery, Zaman was caught by Ravindra Jadeja, who ran from the point to take a brilliant catch at the square on the off-side in the 34th over.

Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur said he hoped a proposed World XI visit to the country later this year went ahead after his side served notice of their enduring talent with a stunning Champions Trophy final win over India.

Talking at prize distribution ceremony, he said we have played for victory and all bowlers and batsmen have played their due role in the match as per strategy.

Tournament result: Pakistan win 2017 Champions Trophy. It is Pakistan's first ICC 50 over title since the World Cup win in 1992 and this campaign featured a rise similar to the Cornered Tigers' victorious one.

Amir struck just three balls into India's reply when, after bowling two outswingers to Sharma, he had him lbw with a superb inswinger. Indians couldn't restrict the Pakistan batting within a minimal score. "Well played, deserved winners and a great result for Pakistan cricket", former Indian opener Virender Sehwag said.

Zaman made full use of the opportunity to punish the Indian attack on a day when it mattered most.

Witnesses described seeing between eight to 10 people lying on the ground near to the Muslim Welfare House on Seven Sisters Road. Meanwhile, the man who ran over the pedestrians with a white van vehicle screamed that he wanted to kill all the Muslims.

Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni could still rescue India, but Singh was hit pad first by spinner Shadab, confirmed by video review.

Sent in to bat by India captain Virat Kohli, Pakistan's opening pair Fakhar (114) and Azhar Ali (59) put together their second consecutive century stand, motoring to 128 in 23 overs before Azhar was disastrously run-out. The Pakistan win was given once India let them post a total 338 for four. When asked who will win this tournament, nearly all experts agreed on one answer - anyone but Pakistan. He hammered six sixes in his 43-ball-76 and appeared to have breathed life - however little of it - back into the contest. Fakhar was out to a nice catch on the run by Jadeja behind square.

However, the International Cricket Council are set to send a World XI to Pakistan in September.

"I think people should now stop saying that Pakistan can't beat India in major events", he said.
