Champions Trophy 2017: Pakistan crush India with devastating bowling display

Champions Trophy 2017: Pakistan crush India with devastating bowling display

Title-holders India, set 339 to win, collapsed to 33 for three and 54 for five against a Pakistan side they had thrashed by 124 runs in their tournament opener at Edgbaston on June 4. Pakistan, on the other hand, have turned around their campaign after the disastrous start.

India got their man finally thanks to a fine catch by Jadeja running back from point after a skewed big hit at Pandya.

Earlier in first innings, Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day global hundred was the cornerstone of Pakistan's 338 for four as they set title-holders and arch-rivals India a stiff chase to win the Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday.

India were defending their 2013 Champions Trophy title while Pakistan were vying for their maiden Champions Trophy title.

There's something about the Champions Trophy and Shikhar Dhawan.

Fakhar makes a confident 31 on ODI debut and Pakistan are well ahead of where they need to be, at 119 for three off 27 overs, when rain sees them win under the Duckworth/Lewis rule.

What actually happened was that newbie opener Fakhar Zaman, playing his fourth global innings, hit 114 from 106 balls in one of the highest-pressure cricket matches of the decade, before a bristling middle order grew the total to 338 for 4, with hitherto unsuspected power and skill.

Jared Kushner speaks in public. And Washington takes notice
The visit is seen as an early step in the negotiation process. "My guess is that they won't", he maintained. Both Kushner and Greenblatt will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and P.A.

"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.

India lost its first wicket in the first over itself.

It was built on a tremendous stand for the opening wicket - with India's first breakthrough not until the 23rd over when Pakistan had already amassed 128 runs.

Denied the calming influence of an early wicket, India's bowlers looked nervous.

"Pakistan had to earn their win and they made us make mistakes".

Pakistan: 338/4 in 50 overs (Azhar 59, Zaman 114, Babar 46, Malik 12, Hafeez 57, Wasim 25; Bhvneshwar 1/44, Bumrah 0/68, Ashwin 0/70, Pandya 1/53, Jadeja 0/67, Jadhav 1/27).

Oh wait, Pakistan have suffered another blow, their most experienced fast bowler has been ruled out of the tournament due to an injury. Pakistan pile on 338 runs but this is Kohli's India, they murder such run chases for a living and he himself is the greatest chaser in ODI cricket's history.
