Former Australia batsman Michael Hussey feels underdog Pakistan peaked at the right time and played its best cricket in the final against India to lift the ICC Champions Trophy.

While the final of the ICC's secondary 50-over competition attracted an estimated televised audience of hundreds of millions as Pakistan crushed India at The Oval, the governing body is keen to capitalise on the exponential rise of its shortest format.

Left-hander Fakhar Zaman, playing in only his fourth ODI, smashed 114 off 106 balls and top-scored in Pakistan's 338-4, before India crumbled to 158 all out.

"But I am more happy and delighted for players like Fakhar Zaman and Hasan Ali, who impressed their peers through their talent and performances, and found their way in the side".

India's SpiceJet to buy up to 50 additional Bombardier Q400 turboprop planes
The move comes as it looks to grow its regional footprint in India and nearby global destinations such as Sri Lanka. Based on the Q400 turboprop list price, an order could be valued at up to United States dollars 1.7 billion.

Hardik Pandya was the top-scorer for India with 76 runs before he was run out by Hasan in the 27th over after a mix-up with partner Ravindra Jadeja.

India had three players in batsmen Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan, together with seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, in the ICC team.

India are slated to host the ninth staging of the Champions Trophy in four years' time but ICC chief executive Dave Richardson revealed it is far from a certainty. Amir's arrangement means he will play County Championship fixtures for the current Division One leaders, as well as NatWest T20 Blast matches.

"I do know that when the game is on the line and the bigger the game the more he performs, the more ramped up he gets, so he doesn't shy away from pressure situations". Hardik Pandya came to bat at five down and his 76 runs from 43 balls nearly brought the Indian team back into the game. Sometimes, the opposition does play very well. The whole team deserves to celebrate well beyond the Eid festival next week as the players richly deserve their victory.

Sarfraz's joy at the fall of the last wicket showed us what the win meant to him.

"Shoaib is the seniormost player in the side and we felt that Amir needed someone elder and senior to him to guide and advise him as he eased back into the Pakistan dressing room and global cricket", a senior official of the Board said.

Pakistan, who had lost all three of their previous matches against India in the knockout stages of International Cricket Council tournaments and started this event the lowest ranked of the eight teams involved, were now on the brink of a sensational win. "All the credit goes to the entire team, they all worked really hard".

"But you have to accept that the other team has outplayed you and they've shown better skill than you, they've shown better composure in pressure situations than you".
