Fans in Pakistan celebrate memorable victory over India

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed hailed his side's character and belief as they delivered a brilliant performance to hand defending champions India a 180-run thrashing in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy cricket tournament here on Sunday.

India, who entered the field as favorites after winning the previous match against Pakistan in the tournament, had a shaky start when fiery Pakistani left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir dismissed Indian opener Rohit Sharma for a duck.

Amir, who missed Pakistan's eight-wicket semi-final win over England with a back spasm, finished with three wickets for 16 runs in six overs.

Earlier, Pakistan made 338 for four after losing the toss with opener Fakhar Zaman's 114 his maiden one-day worldwide hundred in just his fourth match at this level.

Pakistan have been badly bruised against India this series in their opening group stage match, having lost the game by 124 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method. Only once in Trophy history has a team batting first won the final; India in 2013. "I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an unbelievable tournament".

"And then we just showed great, great character and I am really happy because it's all for the nation of Pakistan because they've been waiting for such a long time". "Hopefully, we can post more than 300", Sarfraz said. They were all out for 158 in 30.3 overs. They proved it again, they can upset anyone on their day, disappointing for us but I have a smile on my face because we played well to reach the final.

Trump lawyer denies president is a probe target
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel following Comey's ouster in early May. Advisers have been forced to perform post-presidential cleanup in the wake of Trump's tweets and comments.

Widely written off after an abject display in their opening group match against the same opponents, the lowest-ranked team going into the tournament suddenly rediscovered their mojo.

Fakhar Zaman couldn't resist the length ball outside off stump, so he poked at it and only nicked it.

The momentum remained with Pakistan as Mohammad Hafeez pummelled three sixes and four fours, putting on an unbroken 71 with Imad Wasim (25no) who enjoyed a remarkable slice of luck when a delivery from Bumrah bounced forcefully off his wicket without dislodging a bail. He scored 76 off 43 balls but had to go due to a misunderstanding with partner Ravindra Jadeja.

Fakhar's natural game has plundered Pakistan domestic cricket for five seasons.

The 27-year-old Fakhar, however, put the setback behind him to complete a 92-ball hundred when he swept star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin for his 12th four. But just when it seemed that he was blazing towards a first global century, he was run out after a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja.

He was eventually out when he sliced medium-pacer Pandya to Jadeja, running back from point.
