Fantastic Fakhar hits maiden ton as Pakistan post huge target

Amir, whose career was almost ended on the other side of London's River Thames by a ban and jail sentence for his involvement in a spot-fixing scan during a 2010 Test at Lord's, made a brilliant comeback after a back spasm forced him out of the semi-final victory over England.

He dismissed Rohit Sharma (nought), India captain Virat Kohli (five) and Shikhar Dhawan (21) in a stunning new-ball spell. "But for a guy like Zaman, it becomes really hard to stop players like him, because I think 80 per cent of his shots were high-risk and they were all coming off".

Sport looks at Pakistan's remarkable run to the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy title.

"It says a lot about his personality ... but what I do know is that Mohammad Amir is a big-match player".

"We want to be a little more consistent as a team but we've got a group of players here who are fantastic".

Amir took out all three of India's premier batsmen, bowled a maiden for figures of 6-2-16-3, then watched as his teammates mopped up.

"Pakistan is celebrating their biggest victory against their archrival".

"I want to congratulate Pakistan and their supporters", he said. "I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an incredible tournament". "We can't take anyone lightly but they were more intense and passionate on the day".

Mohammad Amir had Rohit Sharma lbw in the first over and the king of the ODI chase, Virat Kohli came in at 0-1 but instead of steadying the ship he was dropped after just eight balls and instead of taking that reprieve he was out one ball later.

The collapse continued when left-handed opener Dhawan was caught behind off Amir.

Fakhar departed for 114 runs, just a couple of balls after 200 came up for Pakistan in the 33rd over.

India should have had a wicket when Fakhar was caught behind off Jasprit Bumrah on three.

He shared a fluent century opening partnership with Azhar Ali (59), the pair unleashing a barrage of crisp attacking strokes all around a sun-kissed ground. In ODIs, he has scored 18 runs in 42 balls for one dismissal, and in T20Is he has scored only one runs in seven balls, and been dismissed twice.

In only his fourth one-day worldwide at the age of 27, after his debut just 11 days ago, Fakhar overcame his nervy start to unfurl a series of increasingly assured strokes among his 12 fours and two sixes in a 92-ball century.

He was eventually out when he sliced medium-pacer Pandya to Jadeja, running back from point.

Shadab picked up his second wicket when Kedar Jadhav, on nine, gave Sarfraz a simple catch and India appeared to be crumbling meekly at 72 for six.
