Pakistan clinch Champions Trophy

After leaving India reeling on six for two following the dismissals of Sharma and Kohli, Amir's figures read 1.4 overs, four runs, two wickets.

Put in to bat, Pakistan got off to a flawless start. "Amir bowled brilliantly but all my bowlers bowled really well".

"When we arrived here (in England), we were No 8 and now we are the champions", said the 30-year-old gloveman.

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 global series in its home country since a 2009 terrorist attack forced them to adopt the United Arab Emirates as their home turf.

Put into bat, the Men in Green had a ideal start as both Azhar Ali and Zaman shared a 128-run opening stand to put their team on road of a massive first innings-score.

Azhar also continued his fine form in the tournament, reaching his fifty off 61 balls before he was run out following a mix-up with his partner. The duo began cautiously and went three overs without a boundary.

It was a huge win for Pakistan yesterday.

Fakhar hit 12 fours and three sixes before skying a catch off Hardik Pandya but Pakistan had the flawless platform to make the highest total in a Champions Trophy final.

Within three overs, however, their reply was in tatters as Amir produced a devastating spell of bowling.

Opener Rohit Sharma fell for a duck while Virat Kohli was dismissed for five and Shikhar Dhawan was caught on 21.

Kohli, who was dropped at first slip by Azhar Ali in the previous ball, tried a flick to the on-side but could only manage a leading edge straight to Shadab Khan at point.

India had a glimpse of hope when Yuvraj and Dhoni were at the crease but today even that wasn't meant to be.

The company had revenue of $393.81 million during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $364.60 million. Goldman Sachs began coverage of RICE with a rating of "Neutral" and establishing a price target of $27.00.

For India, pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya and spinner Kedar Jadhav took one wicket each.

Pakistan on Sunday dominated with both bat and ball to thrash a rather off-colour India by 180 runs and lift the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy.

"The extras are something that s never a good feeling to concede so many". One big partnership would have been the key to set it up nicely, but credit to the opposition. We didn't take them lightly. He went on to join a rare group of batsmen who had scored a century on their maiden game against India.

He the could also be heard using derogatory statements against India cricketers.

From there Mickey Arthur's side lost some of their momentum but still finished on 338-4, leaving India by far the highest chase in a Champions Trophy final.
