Pakistan defeat India to win Champions Trophy

But they were likely regretting their decision as Pakistan racked up a stunning 338 runs in their 50 overs. Although Shami is mostly known in India (where he represents the state of Bengal in domestic cricket) the player does have a small base of fans in other countries. Ali is also the first bowler to take four successive three-wicket hauls in the Champions Trophy.

# Hardik Pandya scored a quick fire fifty and brought up with a huge six.

Fakhar Zaman scored a spectacular century to set up Pakistan's first ODI title win in 25 years.

"Amir bowled brilliantly today but all my bowlers bowled really well".

The left-arm pacer extracted movement both in the air and off the pitch and quite a few of his deliveries were nearly unplayable.

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Dinesh Karthik, Mohammed Shami, Ajinkya Rahane, Umesh Yadav.

Trump still angry over Russia probe
The memo identifies several Trump officials and advisers whose records are of particular interest in the probe. It wasn't clear whether he was basing his tweet on direct knowledge or on media reports .

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.

It also spoke to how important that partnership was for a success-starved Pakistan.

There was a still a seat-of-the-pants element to Pakistan's progress, though, and it was not the greatest surprise when the stand ended with a run-out mix-up in which both batsmen were stranded at the same end.

Pakistan: Sarfraz Ahmed (captain and wicket-keeper), Ahmed Shehzad, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir, Rumman Raees, Junaid Khan, Imad Wasim, Fahim Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail. Pakistan seemed to have done that.

"The way we showed character, this is for the nation". 'If you make the finals, you've played readlly good cricket, he said. "Hopefully this win will boost up Pakistan cricket". Pakistan made sure it did not turn out to be a costly mistake, though, as Amir dismissed him next ball.

Put in to bat, Pakistan got off to a ideal start.

US President Donald Trump publicly acknowledges Russian Federation probe includes him
Earlier this week United States media reported that Mueller was investigating the president for possible obstruction of justice . And it was Rosenstein who appointed Robert Mueller as the special counsel to lead that investigation after Comey was sacked .

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

After playing a shot to left of the square leg, Azhar wanted to steal a single but Zaman didn't respond his call and thus India got a much needed breakthrough in form of Azhar.

Zaman's batting didn't have the grace that one normally associates with left-handers but on a true pitch where hitting through the line was easy, it suited his style. In his 106-ball innings, Zaman hit 12 boundaries and three sixes.

Pakistan were 227 for the loss of two wickets after 37 overs. Azam, who was previously supporting Zaman, now took the charge and played freely.

Admitting that the match between India and Pakistan is always "special", the 32-year-old backed his side to continue to play in the same manner as they have performed so far and emerge victorious.
