Ton for Fakhar Zaman as Pakistan flay Indian bowlers

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.

Hardik Pandya hit a go-for-broke 76 off 43 balls, including six sixes, but his career-best slog was stopped when he was run out by teammate Ravindra Jadeja.

But after beating South Africa and then holding on to beat Sri Lanka they then upset hosts England in the "semi", beating them by eight wickets.

Sharma, the tournament's second-top scorer behind opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, fell for a three-ball duck when left-arm paceman Amir, having bowled a couple of outswingers, had him lbw with an inswinger.

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 had a run-out scrape too, on 29, when Rohit Sharma missed the stumps from midwicket this time as Pakistan's frenetic start continued.

It was compelling shot-a-ball viewing, several not necessarily despatched in the intended direction. Fakhar was out to a nice catch on the run by Jadeja behind square. Fellow opener Azhar Ali also survived run out chances on 15 and 29.

Fakhar brought up his maiden century in his fourth one-day global by muscling a sweep of Ashwin for his 12th boundary.

Kohli opted to field first Sunday after winning the toss on a typically good pitch at a sun-drenched Oval.

But Pakistan veteran Mohammad Hafeez's quickfire 57 not out, including three sixes, took Pakistan well beyond 300.

"It's a great, great team effort from where we came from because we knew after losing the first game [in the group stage to India], we were nowhere". "When I came to the PSL, I knew I could play well", he said.

"I think this is something we wanted to do because the millions of people at home were waiting for this".

Pakistan create history, thrash India in Champions Trophy final
It was the sort of start the Pakistan batsmen were looking for and they got it with a bit of assistance from the Indian bowlers. Just two weeks ago, Pakistan were at a low ebb after crashing to a humiliating 124-run defeat against India in the group stage.

180 run-win for Pakistan, their biggest margin against India in ODIs batting first.

"The whole group kept believing".

Put in to bat first, they took advantage of one mistake from India, a no-ball, to run away with the game. After that, it was hard for India to come back into the game. "We have a young team and credit to my boys".

Middle-order batsman Mohammad Hafeez then joined Azam but this time the Pakistani duo failed to click as India skipper Virat Kohli's ploy to bring back spinner Jadhav clicked.

They had an wonderful tournament. "The way they turned things around speaks volumes for the talent they have in their side", Kohli said. "It's a very proud moment for me and my country, and thanks to the nation for supporting us".

"Once we put up a strong total, I was more than million percent sure India can't beat us today", said Zahra Mehmood, a housewife.
