Pakistan stun defending champions India to win Champions Trophy

Amir breathed fire at the top, and by the time he removed Rohit Sharma, Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan in his opening spell of six overs, the match was done.

Rohit Sharma was pinned lbw by the third ball of the innings, only for Azhar Ali to spill a straightforward first-slip chance off India captain and master run-chaser Virat Kohli.

Opener Fakhar Zaman (114) - brought into the side after that opening defeat - laid the platform in the final by striking his maiden ODI century in a total of 338-4. After a nervy beginning in the final - it was the biggest game of his life after all - Zaman's belligerence showed what Pakistan missed earlier.

Sarfraz paid tribute to the influence of a coaching staff led by Mickey Arthur, who took charge shortly before Pakistan s tour of England past year, where a Test series was shared but the ODI campaign lost 4-1. Yuvraj was out leg-before to Shadab Khan on review, and Dhoni pulled Hasan Ali straight to the fielder on the square leg boundary.

With 338 on the board, a fit Mohammad Aamer, in-form Junaid Khan and Hasan Ali, and the teenage wonder Shadab Ali, the odds favoured Pakistan when they walked out to defend in the high-pressure clash.

"The final overs usually involve a lot of pressure and especially if you are playing against India".

He shared a first-wicket stand of 128 with Azhar Ali (59) and then put on 72 with Babar Azam (46) for the second.

Deal for Greece with €8.5 billion tranche and International Monetary Fund standby arrangement
Last month he said everything pointed to stronger growth in Greece. "We can't live on 300 euros" they chanted. Thursday's compromise shows the disagreement has yet to be fully bridged.

The Prime Minister added that the cricket team has provided an "excellent opportunity for the entire nation to rejoice in the Holy month of Ramadan".

India went into the finals after beating Bangladesh by 9 wickets in the semi-final match.

"I am sure Pakistan will get additional inspiration and motivation from its past successes in this event and will aim to extend its run come Sunday." the 42-year-old said. Fakhar ought to have been out for 3 in the fourth over, caught behind, but Jasprit Bumrah delivered a no ball.

Bottom-ranked Pakistan produced a breathtaking display at London s Oval on Sunday in the climax of a tournament featuring the world s top eight one-day global nations.

In his wake there were handy contributions from Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez whose 57 from 37 balls was suitably skittish especially for someone who is known as "The Professor". Good cricket, positive cricket, and we will win.

He was eventually out when he sliced medium-pacer Hardik Pandya and Jadeja, running back from point, held a well-judged catch.

Pakistan will be out for revenge while India will aim to maintain their dominance when the arch-rivals meet in the final. 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 said when we arrived here, we have nothing to lose and we have nothing to lose today too.
