Pakistan stun India to clinch Champions Trophy

Pakistan claimed their maiden ICC Champions Trophy title after stunning rivals India by 180 runs at The Oval.

After posting a total of 338-4, Sarfraz Ahmed’s side bowled their opponents out for just 158.

Opener Fakhar Zaman laid the platform with his maiden ODI century (114), while Azhar Ali (59) and Mohammad Hafeez (57) hit half centuries.

Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali then took three wickets each to tear though the Indian batting lineup which folded up in 30.3 overs.

It’s Pakistan’s first global 50-over title since 1992.
