Pakistan Defeat India To Win Champions Trophy

Both sides have brilliant pacers who are backed by tidy spinners. They were more intense and more passionate.

India never looked to be in any problem when they started their run chase and reached the target with nine wickets in hand and nearly ten overs to spare. "He has proper big-match temperament and he showed that on the biggest stage". "They outplayed us, they were more intense and passionate on the day". They worked really hard after the defeat in the first match.

Amir removed all of India's top three as Pakistan stunned their arch-rivals with a remarkable 180-run win while Fakhar scored his maiden ODI ton for Pakistan. The 2008 Olympics Opening Ceremony has the record of being watched by 1 billion people followed by the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2010 World Cup final with 530 million viewers.

After leaving India reeling on six for two following the dismissals of Sharma and Kohli, Amir's figures read 1.4 overs, four runs, two wickets.

Once Kohli departed, Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav followed inside 20 overs as the Indian fans, who came here expecting a good evening, left the stadium in a hurry.

"Their turnaround has been magnificent", said Kohli. There's a fresh wicket, even grass covering and we'd like our bowlers to exploit it.

They came into the final against India at the Oval as the outsiders and when India won the toss and chose to chase it was felt like Pakistan would need to post close to 350 to just have a chance.

Pakistan's 100-plus opening stand was broken as Azhar Ali was run out after a misunderstanding at 59, leaving Pakistan one down for 128.

In their last two games, Pakistan were dominant and thrashed England and the defending champions India by huge margins. He then wrote letters to the headquarters to say that he needs me for cricket. "Don't worry about the India match". Pakistan have played some good cricket and have had some good wins. As against Pakistan's 18, India have 19 wickets from fewer deliveries.

The Men in Blue have won all three of their previous matches against Pakistan in the knockout stages of International Cricket Council (ICC) tournaments to date and it is but obvious that they would start going into the finals as favourites. "No matter what they bring, we are believing in our abilities", Kohli said. "We put India on the back foot and that certainly gave us the upper hand".

"After all, it is just a game and the better team would win". He has done so Bangladesh in the semi-finals too.

Kohli did not hesitate to bowl first, perhaps because of India's comfort factor in chases. "I think the difference is exposure, the exposure to massive pressure situasituations", Arthur, Pakistan's coach from South Africa, said. "Everyone is aware of the kind of talent they have in their team, and on their day they can beat any side in the world".
