Small margins can me massive in this game: Virat Kohli

India may be ahead against Pakistan in ICC tournaments by an 8-2 margin, but in all ODI tournament finals Pakistan holds a 6-2 edge in the head-to-head battle against India.

In only his fourth one-day worldwide at the age of 27, after his debut just 11 days ago, Fakhar overcame his nervy start to unfurl a series of increasingly assured strokes among his 12 fours and two sixes in a 92-ball century. Amir had been ruled out of Pakistan's semi-final against England due to a back spasm during a practice session.

Pakistan thrashed favourites India by 180 runs to clinch the Champions Trophy title in a thrilling competition at London's Oval ground on Sunday.

Kohli commended Pakistan for their performance in the tournament.

Turning to the coin, India won the toss and Virat Kohli opted to bowl first. India were found woefully wanting on the big day.

"Unbelievable! The crowd has been cheering like we're in Pakistan".

Pakistan, who will aim for more ODI glory in England at the 2019 World Cup, looked anything but tournament winners after their opening loss.

India was desperate for a foothold in the game when Pandya broke through, getting rid of Zaman as Jadeja took an excellent catch running back from point. More than 200 million people watched that game, according to Indian media, citing BARC India. That was until Amir got to work.

After Yuvraj Singh was given lbw on review to leg-spinner Shadab and MS Dhoni holed out off the pace of Hasan, the contest was as good as done. Zaman and Azhar attacked the Indian bowlers from the word go and played fearless yet sensible cricket in the high-intensity clash against their arch-rivals. India got their first breakthrough when Azhar was run out for 59. Opener Fakhar Zaman fell after scoring 114 off 106 balls.

But he did do India a favour in the 23rd over by bringing his opening partnership with Azhar Ali, worth 128 at better than five runs an over, to an end in calamitous fashion. By the time Jadeja took a well-judged catch off Hardik Pandya to remove Zaman, the team s total had reached 200.

Mohammad Hafeez - with a 34-ball 50 - and Babar Azam chipped in too to ensure Pakistan turned the promise into substance.

Pakistan then prove it's possible to bat on a used pitch, with Fakhar making his second fifty in as many matches, as they cruise to victory with 77 balls to spare.

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. Credit goes to my batsmen, my bowlers and the team management.

Pakistan batsman Mohammad Hafeez: "It's a great, great team effort from where we came from because we knew after losing the first game, we were nowhere".

"Amir bowled brilliantly today but all my bowlers bowled really well".

It's a very young team and credit goes to them and the management.

Imad Wasim: "It's unbelievable (feeling)".
