Live Twitter Reaction, India vs Pakistan, ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Final

Young guy coming into the side (Fakhar Zaman).

Dhawan was caught out by Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed at the tail end of the 9th over, and Shadab Khan took Yuvraj Singh's wicket in the 13th over in an LBW appeal led by Sarfaraz which was initially ruled not out by the umpire. India beat Pakistan in their opening game of the tournament by 124-runs, by Pakistan have shown unambiguous signs of revival since then.

With its win, Pakistan, which came into the tournament ranked No. 8 in the world, has clinched its first Champions Trophy victory.

The rest of the Pakistan attack were irresistible, backed up by excellent fielding, all in front of a vibrant, raucous and enthusiastic capacity crowd. We knew we'd prepared well, we knew that game was an aberration, we knew we were better than that. That was until Amir got to work.

India's top three batsmen - Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, and captain Virat Kohli - came to the final having combined for 874 runs, more than 80 percent of the team's tally in the tournament. Next ball, Kohli hit it straight to Shadab at point and Amir, bowling at 140-plus kph, had his second wicket.

Developing: US coalition force downs Syrian warplane
A similar incident had taken place in 1999 during the Kosovo campaign when the U.S. The coalition said its advance was halted by an unspecified "show of force".


Amir (three wickets for 16 runs), still winning his sport over again after his criminal role in the 2010 spot-fixing saga enacted seven years ago and just a handful of miles away at Lord's, then reduced India to 33 for three - a perilous situation from which the overwhelming favourites were unable to recover, despite some astounding hitting from number seven Hardik Pandya (76).

What did the Man-of-the-series Hasan Ali say?

India, favouring a chase, gave up the chance to bat first on a run-filled surface and were made to pay by left-hander Fakhar.

Fakhar was given a reprieve when he was caught behind with only three runs to his name, but Jasprit Bumrah (0-68) over-stepped and that proved to be very costly.

Fakhar and Azhar produced a stand of 128, the first consecutive opening century partnership by Pakistan in 14 years. At one point, he took 32 runs in the space of eight legal deliveries.

Officer never saw Philando Castile's gun before shooting, prosecutor says
One of the bullets came within inches of Reynolds, according to the testimony of a Bureau of Criminal Apprehension lab supervisor. Paul that Castile disregarded the officer's commands and began reaching for a firearm he had disclosed he had in his possession.


Babar chipped in with a solid 46 and Mohammed Hafeez struck three sixes in a punchy unbeaten 57 that left India needing to produce the highest successful run chase in the tournament's history to lift the trophy for the third time.

As it turned out, Pakistan had far too many for them.

Pakistan have managed to bounce back in this tournament, defeating South Africa and Sri Lanka in the group stages and England in the semi-finals to book a berth in the final.

"Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis are two of the all-time greats but Amir is showing he has the same potential".

"Credit goes to my boys".
