Pakistan stun defending champions India to win Champions Trophy

Pakistan stun defending champions India to win Champions Trophy

But it was fellow paceman Hasan Ali, the player of the tournament having kick-started Pakistan s revival in their group win over South Africa, who ended the match with more than 19 overs left when he had Jasprit Bumrah caught by gleeful captain and wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed. "However, our batting and bowling were up to the task today", he concluded.

"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". The opening pair put on 128 runs before Azhar Ali was run out for 59 runs.

India's Ravindra Jadeja takes a catch to dismiss Pakistan batsman Fakhar Zaman during the ICC Champions Trophy final between Pakistan and India.

Opener Fakhar Zaman, born in the North-West Frontier Province, a late-bloomer at 27 who made his ODI debut in the Champions Trophy, played the biggest game of his life.

Hafeez struck an unbeaten 57 from 37 balls and Babar Azam amassed 46 as Pakistan chalked up 338 - a total deemed eminently gettable on a run-filled surface.

Britain kicks off Brexit negotiations with EU
Looking more sombre than his British counterpart, he said he hoped they could agree a format and timetable on Monday. Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz says: "If we don't succeed both sides will lose".

Amir, whose career was almost ended across London by a ban and jail sentence for his involvement in a spot-fixing scan during a 2010 Test at Lord's, was in superb form after a back spasm forced him out of the semi-final win over England.

India were 54-5 and soon 72-6 as Shadab dismissed Kedar Jadhav cheaply. None of the batsmen could manage a resistance except Hardik Pandya who scored 76. Jadeja nicked Junaid Khan to slip for 15 shortly afterwards.

"They proved it again, they can upset anyone on their day, disappointing for us but I have a smile on my face because we played well to reach the final", Kohli said.

There was still time for Shadab Khan, the youngest man to ever play in an ICC final, to pick up a couple of scalps, the first requiring admirable confidence to unequivocally ask for a review when his LBW shout against Yuvraj Singh was turned down.

"I have dedicated all my performances to my brother, parents, and family", Ali told Geo.tv in an exclusive interview following Pakistan's win in the Champions Trophy final against India.

Brooks Koepka equals scoring record with US Open win
The low scoring suggested the 11-year-old course was a cream puff, hardly the USGA's idea of the ultimate test in golf. Open, shot 75 to tie for ninth at 8 under. "Well", Thomas said, "it wasn't going to be like yesterday, regardless".

We need to stop seeing sport as war minus the shooting.Will make us better Indians and better people too!

The neighbouring countries have moved on from years of political conflicts but emotions will run high as millions of supporters around the world watch the first major cricket final between the teams since the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup.

A matchup between the two sides is seen as the world's premier cricket contest, despite the fact in recent years the outcome has generally been one-sided in India's favour - particularly in knockout tournaments.

"They [Pakistan] had an fantastic tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have. Yeah, credit to them for winning the title", Kohli said, at the post-match press conference on Sunday.

"Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli have been in tremendous form so I was looking for early wickets - and I did it", he said. We thought one big partnership would have set it up nicely.

Van rams worshippers leaving London mosque, killing at least one
Muslims now are observing Ramadan, during which they fast from dawn to dusk and engage in intense prayer and feast at sundown. Transport for London said on Twitter that sections of Seven Sisters Road were closed due to an "emergency services incident".

They were trolled. They were made fun of. "It has been an ultra-quick turnaround from no-hopers to champions for the Pakistan players and the manner in which the team won the match was really impressive", Afridi wrote in his column for the ICC's official website.
