Pakistan stunned the cricket world by crushing the defending champions, and arch-rivals India in the Champions Trophy final this Sunday by a margin of 180 runs.

After losing against the same side in the group stage, Pakistan made a dream comeback in the later stages of the tournament, much similar to their 1992 world cup triumph. After losing the toss and put into bat first, Pakistan got off to a dream start with openers adding 128 in just 23 overs.

Fakhar Zaman was out caught behind the wickets early on in the innings but the replay showed Bumrah overstepping, much to the delight of Pakistan fans. He used the opportunity brilliantly and played the innings of his life. With cameos from Babar & Malik Pakistan scored 338.

Later, Mohammed Amir ran through the top order claiming the wickets of India’s top three. At one stage India were 72/6 but a cameo from Hardik Pandya got them past 150 and a terrible mix up with Jadeja saw him walk off dejected and what followed was a mere formality. India was all out for 158 which meant Pakistan winning their first ever Champions Trophy.
