The trophy shared between India and Sri Lanka. 2013, India! Brilliant
bowling by Hasan are laid. Isn't it amazing, this man is the partnership
breaker -- Hasan Ali. He gets another 101. Pakistan have crashed
England here in Cardiff. They have booked their place in the final. The
fourth time India get into the final of the Champions Trophy. We are
ready for this final. Bring it on. After 18 days and 14 matches we have
arrived at the final of the 2017 ICC too strophe between the archrivals
India and Pakistan. Reportedly over 1 billion people worldwide will be
watching this match unfold and the tickets have been as hot as the
weather -- ICC Champions Trophy. India cruised to the final with
brutal displays of batting. India won that choice and chose to bowl.
Virat Kohli's India love to chase. Batting first will be Pakistan and
they have the in form partnership opening. Mohammad Hafeez at number
four. They all batted well against England. Pakistan's strength is in
the bowling attack. Hasan Ali is leading the statistics and he is
aided by Khan and Mohammed Amir. India has the best batting line-up.
Sharma has scored more runs than anyone else and the captain has the
highest average. If you manage to get rid of them cheaply, you have
the talented A27 macro. Before play, The Oval fell silent to
remember those who have died, including the recent fire in North
Kensington. Ladies and gentlemen, thank you. The
scene is set for the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy final. The best
batting team in the world against the best bowling team. Let us join
the action in the first over. India would want to see the ball to wobble
a little bit. I think this pitch has got enough sideways movement to
trouble Pakistan. Let us see how Fakhar Zaman and companies see this
off. It is a fresh wicket. Here we go. The first ball of the final. It
is a good delivery outside the off stump. Taking it away from the
right-hander. Down the leg side, it will be given as a wide. The first
run is for Pakistan. Outside edge. And he nicks it this time. It is
exactly what we were talking about. There will be a check on the front
foot. Here's hoping against hope that this may work for Pakistan. He
is clearly over the line and it is a no ball. Your breathing again!
Incredible. Well, what a start. Outside edge. He was looking to go
back on his way, Fakhar Zaman, at Bumrah has clearly overstepped and
overstepped by some distance. Clearly an edge.
Gets it off and inside edge, it is a boundary. Inside edge, trying to hit
hard through the off-side. It is a straight hit. Well timed. Just 100
onto him. Good seam position, not exactly where he wanted it, but he
got the result. There is the shot. It has gone through. The keeper and
the slip fielder, it has been given by leg byes. It is going the way of
Pakistan. Fakhar Zaman with the shot. It hurries onto him. That has
gone. Fakhar Zaman can do that, very unorthodox.
Four, edge. It is edge is all the way, a lot of runs have come behind
the stumps but it does not matter to Pakistan. That is into the gap.
Bumrah. He loses the battle. Just a push, just a flick and it gathers
pace as it goes towards the boundary line. That is his strength on the
on-side. Very good player off his bat. It just raises away to the
boundary. -- it just races away. Six, taking on Ashwin. That is the
first six of the innings. It was tossed up by Ashwin. Hasan Ali is
shimmering down the wicket. Two good strides, good flourish on the bat.
Good placement as well. Great shot. A little bit quicker from Ashwin.
Towards the stumps. Hasan Ali a long way outside off the pace. Good shot.
That is going to get him four. Limited foot movement, limited
string -- swing of the bat. Slight movement of the front foot transfers
his weight into the ball. Punches it down the ground. Growing in
confidence, both these two openers. Good shot, gone with the angle, that
is great shot by the left-hander. 69 for no wicket. In the air and could
hurry away. It does. Hasan Ali ends the over with a boundary. Big shot,
do not think he will cut that off, excellent shot, 100 up for Pakistan
in the final. Excellent stuff from Pakistan. Talking about momentum and
peaking at the right time, Pakistan have definitely done that in this
final. Excellent partnership, all credit to Hasan Ali, when Fakhar
Zaman was struggling, Hasan Ali is positive. And thou man has found the
boundary. Excellent shot, just the timing -- Zaman. I think that will
be 58, tucked in on the leg side, he has 50. They need their senior
players to stand up. Hasan Ali has his second half-century against
India and he knows he is not finished -- sorry, Azhar Ali.
Looking to open up the off-side. Yuvraj up backward point, he misses
it and that is 54 Zaman. A wonderful combination and an exceptional
start. Three 50s in a role in the tournament. The change of opener has
worked. It has worked individually and as a team as well. Played it
late and MS Dhoni is not happy. He gives up the chase. He does not
often give you that sort of width but on this occasion he has. Ali
going along beautifully at the moment. Chance of a run out. Chance
of a run out. Azhar Ali. He was ball watching and his partner was not
interested, it had to happen and India are finding some luck finally.
Bumrah is outstanding with the ball on most occasions. You would have
put him down as the greatest fielder in the world but he has made the
breakthrough, our brilliant bit of work. Zaman ball watching. There is
Ali. Always won there. The communication is off and Bumrah did
brilliantly. He was calling for the delivery. 128-1. 23 overs. That is a
big shot. Big six 488 macro. Lovely shot down the ground. That is not
going to happen today. We're still in charge, still dictating. It is
high, it is long, into the sightscreen for a brilliant six. And
finds the gap. Excellent batting. Brilliant bit of batting. Zaman, his
maturity so far in this tournament has been absolutely superb. Down the
track. Hit it ever so sweetly. This is brilliant stuff from the left
hand. 150 comes up for Pakistan. 150-1. Straight hit and a big hit. A
flat six, Zaman making it look ridiculously easy, taking an Ashwin.
This is such a tough shot. The ball spinning away, he is not quite
there, but his confidence and energy, he is able to throw his
hands out and almost swatted back over the head of the bowler. Another
brilliant boundary. He continues his charge. Then he lets it go through
the off-side, sweetly timed. He is now being rushed for the third.
Another excellent piece of batting from the left-hander. More runs. I
think that was well delivered. Bumrah. Almost catching up with the
ball but it was not to be. Big over for Pakistan. That was on his head
for four. He is not going to stop himself from playing the shots.
Moves into the 90s. Let us look at the shot first. Before we talk about
Ashwin and the way he has bowled. That is going to be four. His first
one-day international. What a stage indeed. What an opposition to do it
against. Against India, in a final. Quite remarkable. Out off a no ball
and he has made India pay. What an amazing story. First game, he was
not playing against India, sacking game against them, he smashes 100.
And no ball that continue to haunt India, happened again, it happened
in Mumbai. He had then. There was no ball. The good thing, he has kept
back in himself. He is going on in that direction. First ball has
disappeared for a six, pressure an Ashwin and what batting from Fakhar
Zaman. That was good batting, towards that pavilion is the shorter
boundary. He is very strong in that area. He has hit it pretty well, but
the other way, that would have been out. That is very clever batting,
pick your bowler and pick your boundary and smash it for six.
200, this is looking ominous for India. This has gone up. And again,
it might just fall away now. He runs back, makes the difficult catch big
easy and as we thought and feared and anticipated, Fakhar Zaman has
gone after 100. If there was one man that you wanted underneath that
ball, it was revenge Jadeja. It was not an easy catch. Swirling over his
shoulder, he made it look so easy -- Jadeja. A wonderful 100 comes to an
end. It is 200-2. That has got to be four. Could not find the York. Phil
Thomas. -- could not finds there yorker. For some reason, his ball
has gone yorker. Good shot, very good shot. Stand and deliver.
Excellent balance on the execution there. Not a lot wrong with that
delivery and that is why Kohli applauded it. Pulled off the front
foot, maybe he was waiting for the short ball. Big shot. He has found
it. That is the maximum. He is a very good player of spin. Picked the
boundary at the right time. Their Art Cole bringing them the left-arm
spinner, he is using his feet. Tasha Krall Virat Kohli. -- Virat Kohli.
Another boundary for Pakistan. Just the momentum they required, six in
the previous over. Bad delivery. He does well to hit it into the gap.
Just Artime to accelerate, Babar Azam. -- just starting to
accelerate. Another short one, nice little flick. Nothing more than just
a little flick. Just a flick and it races away. Bill stopping on this
ground once it gets to the practice pitches. -- no stopping. It is in
the air. That is the one India wanted. Got the very dangerous Malik
out. Tried to give him room again. That was an excellent catch. Why
wouldn't you move like that? India are back again. That is exactly what
I was trying to say, do not hit it blindly, but sensible. Easy catch
for Kedar Jadhav. Still in a good position, Pakistan.
Oh well, just keep going, that is a great shot. Well played. That is the
attitude Pakistan have had for the whole day. Just rather down.
Pressure is on Jadeja. He is a good player of spin. Round arm and he got
it. That was a bad ball from Jadeja. He thought he was coming down. Well
played. That was all due to that first shot when he used his feet.
The pressure is back on Jadeja now. That is a bad delivery, he did well
to connect it. Has he got him? He has got him. Put on the charge. They
need a few more of them, Pakistan. Very good shot. Using his feet. His
bands on the surface helps him to hit it through. It is in the air. Is
that in the gap? Clean as a whistle. Yuvraj. On your bike, barbaric! That
is the one that India wanted. -- has 25-macro. -- Babar. No spin, hits on
the outside part of the bat. Do not underestimate him. Pakistan ) number
four. 267-4. Nice and straight, square on the leg-side. Beautifully
timed again from her fees. -- Hafeez. Have a look at this one,
proper shots. Big shot, has it connected? It has gone. Very good
attempt. Hafeez with a very fine strike. And other maximum. Good
batting from Hafeez. Good use of the feet. Simple swing at the bat. You
can try an overhead like Babar, stay in his shed, trusted his swing and
timing. How down the wicket again. Got close
to it. Hits it hard and flat. One bounce and back into the
sightscreen. Big one from Hafeez. 300 for Pakistan. Perfect late ball
there. Hafeez was having none of that. Same here, it stays stationary
and did not commit all the way. Slower ball, hit harder. Hardik
Pandya is very quick and only had to move ten metres to his left but
could not get there. 54 Hafeez, he did not like the short but it has
been a great innings. 50 from 34. Straight hit. Six! Great result. And
he has played a blinder here. I am repeating myself. Do not worry about
extra cover. It was straight down the ground. Stepped outside his
off-stump. Got the middle of the bat onto it. 78 metres down the ground,
just missed the cameraman. Sly ball from Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Got the full
treatment. Last ball of the innings. It said. Cannot find the fence. --
hits it. India will be happy with the way they ended the last few
overs. They still have to bowl extremely well. That is brilliant.
First half of the game for Pakistan. Indian needs 339 to win. Virat Kohli
has a lot of work to do. Pakistan Post a very challenging total. A
great batting display by Pakistan began with a blistering opening
partnership. The left-hander hitting a sublime 114. Babar played well
before Hafeez really let rip. The Pakistan total went to 338, the
highest total of the tournament and India will require a record-breaking
batting performance if they are to win. For India, the pick of the
bowlers was Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya also bowled with
accuracy and efficiency. The rest of the bowlers were really taken apart.
By the bludgeoning Pakistani batting line-up. We are now talking to
Fakhar Zaman. I was so lucky to get a no ball. I it is a final against
India. I really enjoyed by innings. Yesterday I was not feeling very
well after the practice session, but thanks to my physio, he was with me
the whole night and I was thinking I would not be able to play tomorrow,
but he told me, you will be fine in the morning. It was thanks to him.
Also, there was a big swing in the wicket. I was taking my time. It got
easier. You will be the highest total chased down in this tournament
if India managed to overhaul the massive Pakistan total. If any team
can do it, India can, they have a talented batting line-up,
spearheaded by Sharma and Dow one. -- Dhawan. Mohammed Amir passed a
fitness test yesterday and he is raring to go from the Pavilion End.
Will he swing this new ball? We have not seen much of it. Shaba on
strike. -- Sharma. Close. That came back in. Given! Will Sharma review
it? He thinks he has gone. That is the beauty. He is asking Dhawan.
There is only one review for India in this innings. One review for each
side. Rohit Sharma walks off. A big blow. We were talking about early
wickets and he strikes. Comes into the right-hander. Right across the
line. A big start for Pakistan. A duck for Rohit Sharma in the final.
Not a man you want to drop! Everything was perfect, apart from
that. Regulation, off the shoulder, catch at someone. Then you look up
and you see it is Kohli. How important is that. In the air. Gone.
He is gone on the next ball. Brilliant from Amir. Pakistan
cricket at its best. Of those Virat Kohli and probably India's chances
in this game. Have a look at Fakhar Zaman, he has done nothing wrong in
this game. He has taken the most important catch in this game. India
are trailing six for two. They needed the boundary, they've
got it. Slower ball, driven on the up. The outfield is quick. Is it
quick enough? Yes. There's no stopping, on the up. He
just races away. Top edge, that will go away for
four. Parade in four pace. -- hurried in, four pace. Punished.
If you are going to go ape in this game, he's going to step up and
leave them. -- go deep. Pakistan has been brilliant with the ball so far.
Cracking shot. That is making a special sound. 19 now.
Dhawan, top of the bounce. Oh, taken, caught behind. Working
fantastically for Mohammed, it's a big one, a big fish. It changes
things now, doesn't it? A wicket taking bowler. It's bounced a
little. He's just sent it off-stump, Shihkar Dhawan. Pakistan are rampant
at the moment. You see the delight. Shihkar Dhawan, the prolific Shihkar
Dhawan, departs for 21. They are reeling, 33-3. Oh, he's so good
against spin. This may just backfire for Pakistan, this move of
introducing spin the Yuvraj. Another shot down the ground. It's a fourth.
This clearly has misfired, this move. It's allowed Yuvraj Singh,
with few these -- few easy boundaries. Celestial in style,
Yuvraj Singh as earned India a massive advantage.
Pad first then the bat, gone for the appeal. Sarfraz feels there is a
strong case. They've gone for review. Thank you, that's their
delivery. Can we get a frontal, please? I want to see if it hit pad
first. It certainly looks like it has. Can you get a Hot Spot, please?
Yes, definitely pad first. I'm happy to go straight to ball tracking,
thank you. Ball tracking coming up now,
Richard. Impact is in line. It's going on to hit the wicket. You are
on camera now, Richard. Incredible! What a wicket. Shadab Khan has
bamboozled a left-hander. It's happening for Pakistan today.
Nothing really has worked for India so far in this contest. It sure
scrap -- its Yuvraj Singh, the latest except, 22 from 31, a wicket
for Shadab Khan, 54-4. Paul shot. Court by Imad Wasim. It's Hasan Ali
who has given Pakistan another massive breakthrough. Is he over the
line? He's fine. He's fine. The heel is hitting the crease, and not over
it. Very good catch will stop low and he took it well and Hasan Ali is
off the mark. MS gone. 54 for the loss of five. The energy with the
ball, what are shot that is. That will be four. Just the energy and
everything they've brought. That's one of the shots of the day, 67-5.
This one has gone straight up. This is going to be another wicket. Six
wickets gone, Shadab Khan strikes again. No need for review this time.
That's the way he plays, comes off on occasions. Doesn't on occasions.
Well, the 18-year-old has just taken his second wicket. It was a big leg
break. He tried to smack on the on-side. The skipper, Sarfraz, I
want risk you little river. We are on our way. This has been wonderful
stuff from Pakistan. You can see the emotion, the passion with which they
are playing. This is great stuff from Pakistan, and unfortunately for
India, they lose their sixth wicket. Judge gone. -- Kedar Jadhav gone.
The cream has gone, the cream of Indian bracket has -- bracket has
gone. I tell you what, Shadab Khan, the wrist spinner, the leg-spinner,
getting a second wicket. Has he got enough? Yes, he has. In
fact, more than enough. It's gone in a second-tier tear. Clean as a
whistle. Pandya just an iced swing of the bat. No use a stand and
deliver start. That's at the top deck. That's hit through the on-side
and that's gone wild into the stands. He is a very powerful
hitter, Hardik Pandya. High and handsome, long over mid-wicket. It's
a good cricketing shot. It just goes to show how good the surface has
been so far, against the turn, through the on-side. This time
again. Will he clear the boundary? He does. Back-to-back sixes for
Hardik Pandya. Hits it again. Third six of the
over. Three consecutive sixes. Brings up his 50 in good time, in
just 32 deliveries. And it's the fastest 50 in a world ODI final.
Tossed it again, this time through covers. Races away to the boundary.
22 runs from this over so far, and they're still one more delivery to
go. This time through mid-wicket. I was
just about to say, he won't stand there and let another one like that
go outside the off-stump. One more. This time, a longer one,
probably the longest. It goes to the turnstile. Well, the fans have
something to cheer, the Indian fans, stand and deliver, 152-6.
Got rid of all three of them. And Hardik Pandya has to go. What India
did in the morning, Pakistan does it in the afternoon. Was a bit of
agitation earlier between these two as well with some running between
the wickets. He's absolutely livid, Hardik Pandya, as he should be. Big,
big sub, pushed it in the off-side from Jadeja and just doesn't go.
Plenty of time for the fields man. Took his time, bouncing into the
bowler, and the simplest of runouts. Pandya on his way, India now 7-152.
Once again Pakistan strike. 76. Outside edge. They haven't missed
much, Pakistan. And once again he strikes with the old ball. Jen A De
Bakker in the attack. -- Jen A. 8-156, India.
Outside edge. Hassan strikes again. What a cricketer he is. What about
the energy? It's created in that Pakistan horrible right now, they
are coming from everywhere, the players, as they should. Hasan Ali
again, good links, Sime. Ashwin clashes outside the off-stump.
Through Sarfraz. Isn't he happy, the Pakistan captain? Ashwin on his way.
India now 9-156. Sarfraz takes the catch, it's all
over. Pakistan win. 158, India. Blown away in the final and it's
Pakistan who are through. Over the line, a massive win. Great scenes.
And after a very long break, they were able to beat India in an
all-important contest. They richly deserved this. They were the better
side on the day. Brilliant with the bat and exquisite with the ball and
Sarfraz, what a leader they've found in him. And the fireworks go up and
it really was one cracker of a performance. Just a complete
performance from Sarfraz and his men. On a flat track, they were able
to derail and demolish Indian batting. Yes, congratulations,
Pakistan. Deserved the trophy come you've been the best side. They
played very, very well. You have to feel for India. They played well
through the tournament. They were blown away today. India just weren't
good enough today. Pakistan flexed their muscles with the bat, the
ball, they were clearly the better side today. Just blew India away and
they are in for a wonderful night tonight, that's for sure,
celebrating with their friends. United when their captain Sarfraz
has led the team well, everyone has contributed for the Pakistan team.
And they are team that is together. All behind their skipper. What a
tournament we've had and congratulations. Go on, Pakistan,
you deserve it. STUDIO:
The best batting line-up in the world simply didn't turn up. Rohit
Sharma, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav all failing to reach double figures.
A quickfire 76 from 43 balls from Hardik Pandya before that desperate
run out was the only score really worth a mention. Remember, this
batting line-up hit Pakistan for 319, just two weeks ago. But what up
performance from the Pakistan bowling attack. Mohammed Ali bowled
with ferocity. Hasan Ali was aggressive. He took three wickets
for just 19 and he ends the tournament as the highest wicket
taker cup, claiming 13 wickets. The eighth ranked team in the world
proved everyone wrong against their biggest rival. Pakistan won by 180
runs, bowling India Alpha 158, with almost 20 overs remaining. A team
that has in the past underperformed has chalked up a famous and historic
victory. After losing the first game and like we were in a next round at
the knockout stage, so there was no chance and everyone just wanted a
great character and I really have him because all it is for the
Pakistan, for the nation, because they've been waiting for this for a
very long time and I think this is what we all like to do. A great game
for the team, I'm so happy. Weldon, three wickets and three quality
wickets. That was terrific stuff at the top. I think that the start we
needed and we were looking for that and at the order, then were
informed, but I was looking for it and I did it. How is your the
pressure? It's not an easy team to coach. Oh, it's not, it's been up
and down. I'm so proud of the boys. We dusted ourselves off after the
India defeat at Edgbaston. We came back superbly on the group kept
believing. We knew we prepared well. We knew we were better than that and
the dust ourselves off and comeback has been a remarkable achievement
and I'm so proud of everybody. That must be very disappointing for you?
Indeed. I want to congratulate the Pakistan team and their fans first.
I think they had an amazing tournament. The way they turn things
around for themselves speaks volumes of the kind of talent they have in
their side and they proved it again today. They can upset anyone on
their day. Disappointing for us as a team to lose the finals, but I have
a smile on my face, because I'm very proud of the way we played in this
tournament and reaching the finals is obviously coming you need to have
a good tournament, which the boys have pulled off. I think after the
India match, one thing I say to my boys, tournament not finishing it.
If we play good cricket, positive cricket, definitely, and credit goes
to my team management and the boys, they learn very well and now we play
in the finals. You talk about positive cricket. You made a change
in the batting line-up, Fakhar Zaman coming in at the top. How important
is he? He has a great impact. He plays like a champion. Thanks to
Fakhar Zaman, if he plays like this, hopefully he can do this for
Pakistan. You also have a champion bowler, who wasn't there in the
semifinal, when you needed the top three dismantling of India, Mohammad
Amir gave you the option. All credit to the bowlers. I think they bowled
really well. The 2017 ICC Champions Trophy winners are Pakistan. After
18 days of wonderful competition across three different venues,
Pakistan's emphatic dismantling of India's talented batting line-up
sees Sarfraz Ahmed's men crowned champions. Goodbye from the Oval.
even just a memory of happiness is enough to make you happy.
Rob, do you think we did something wrong? No.
