Champions Trophy 2017: Pakistan crush India with devastating bowling display

A few Pakistan fans stormed the ground to greet their cricketing heroes only to be neutralised by the bouncers on the ground.

Pakistan batsman Fakhar Zaman celebrates after scoring a century during the ICC Champions Trophy final between Pakistan and India.

Pakistan head coach Micky Arthur praised his side's resolve after they recovered from that 124-run hammering by India at Edgbaston to win effectively four knockout matches in succession.

Fakhar hit 12 fours and three sixes before skying a catch off Hardik Pandya but Pakistan, who upset hosts England in the semifinals, had the flawless platform to make the highest total in a Champions Trophy final.

"I'm sure that the nation of Pakistan is really happy tonight because they deserve it for what they've been through".

Pakistan's victory against India was as spectacular as their campaign in the tournament. He ended up with a knock of 76 runs off 43 balls.

"We want to be a little more consistent as a team but we've got a group of players here who are fantastic". "The whole group kept believing, we knew we were better than what we showed in the first game against India".

This was the first time Pakistan had batted first in the tournament and captain Sarfraz Ahmed said: "We will hope to score 300 plus runs". On a lifeless wicket, Pakistan got a muchneeded lifeline early on in their innings and they kicked off from that point. One big partnership would have been the key to set it up nicely, but credit to the opposition. We didn't take them lightly. "A guy hitting a good shot is something that after a stage it s not in your control as you have already bowled the ball but conceding extras is something that we can control as a team", he said.
