"Pakistan bowling attack was brilliant with Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan contributing well throughout the tournament but the emergence of a couple of newer players in Hasan Ali and Fakhar Zaman, who scored a brilliant century in the final, is exciting for the future of their side", Hussey said.

Yuvraj then fell LBW on appeal to 18 year old Shadab, and Dhoni hooked out to the leg-side boundary to leave India utterly on the ropes at 54-5.

This was Pakistan's maiden victory in the International Cricket Council Champions Trophy, one of the major global cricket tournaments conducted by the ICC.

Zaman's 114 led Pakistan to a commendable 338 for 4, which they defended successfully.

"If there's been a more improbable Pakistan triumph than this, it's yet to be written", said Osman Samiuddin, author of a definitive book on Pakistan cricket, The Unquiet Ones.

Relentless Nadal moves closer to semi-final collision with Djokovic
Defending champion Djokovic and nine-time champion Nadal would also move closer to a head-to-head semifinal showdown. Monfils, 30, was leading 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 4-3 when his opponent withdrew, setting up a last-16 meeting with Wawrinka.

Amir, who missed Pakistan's semi-final win over England with a back spasm, had taken two wickets for four runs in eight balls and India were six for two. As Virat Kohli said in the post-match conference, it was just the probing, aggressive bowling display by Pakistan that did the Indian batting in.

"I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an incredible tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have".

"They proved it again today, they can upset anyone on their day".

Meanwhile, reflecting on India's tournament as a whole, Kohli insisted: "We can (still) be very proud ... and we leave here with our heads held high. They outplayed us. They were more intense and passionate on the day". They're struggling at the 9 position with meagre 77 rating points, and that makes it all the more hard for them to qualify for the ICC World Cup 2019.

Pakistan recovered splendidly from the loss to India in the first league game to win all the remaining matches.

Fakhar Zaman scored a magnificent maiden worldwide century as Pakistan set fierce rivals India a challenging target in the ICC Champions Trophy final at an electric Oval on Sunday.
