Be it Fakhar Zaman’s brilliant century at the top for Pakistan or Mohammad Amir’s brilliant opening spell as he removed India opener Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli, it was Pakistan’s day for sure as they stunned all those who felt that India were favourites to defend the title.
For all those who missed the clinical show from the Pakistan players, they can look back at the game thanks to the ICC’s posts on Twitter which read: “🎥🇵🇰 A maiden ODI hundred by Fakhar Zaman (114) off just 106 balls helped @TheRealPCB to a match-winning 338 #PAKvIND #CT17.”
Another tweet highlighted the bowling spells of the Pakistan bowlers. It read: “🎥🇵🇰 A torrid spell of bowling from @iamamirofficial and Hassan Ali stunned India to propel @TheRealPCB to #CT17 glory! #PAKvIND.”
And there was another tweet which showed all the wickets that fell in the Indian innings in the final at the Oval. It read: “🎥 Relive all the Indian wickets as Pakistan secure the #CT17! 🏆🇵🇰.”
Clearly it was Pakistan all the way as they completed a resounding victory by 180 runs in the 30th over when Jasprit Bumrah was dismissed by Hasan Ali. This was also Pakistan's biggest victory over India by margin of runs in a one-day international.
