Former India opener Virender Sehwag had termed the Indian team as the father and the Pakistan outfit as the son. And that has not gone down too well with the Pakistani fans. But Dhoni once again showed ‘Who is the Daddy’ as he ensured that Shami did not engage in any confrontation with the Pakistan fan. An MS Dhoni fan posted the video which read: “MS Dhoni, the ultimate gentleman. #INDvPAK.”
Pakistan saved their best for the last as they humbled arch-rivals India by a huge margin of 180 runs to win their maiden ICC Champions Trophy title. This also completed Sarfraz Ahmed's team's remarkable comeback, since losing their tournament opener to the same opposition.
The foundation of the win was laid by the batsmen who scored a mammoth 338/4 after being put into bat on a flat Oval track by Indian captain Virat Kohli. India on the other hand capitulated in the face of some great seam bowling by Mohammad Amir and were bowled out for 158 in the 30th over itself.
Any chances of a thrilling chase were nipped in the bud as a charged up Mohammad Amir produced one of his finest spells against India. The left-arm paceman trapped Rohit Sharma in front of the wicket on the third delivery of the Indian innings itself as the Indian opener walked back without scoring.
