HWL Semi Final: India rout Pakistan 7-1 to enter quarters

HWL Semi Final: India rout Pakistan 7-1 to enter quarters

Pakistan inflicted a massive 180-run defeat upon title-holder and favorite India at the Oval in London on Sunday to win the tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide nations. "Hopefully, we can post more than 300", Sarfraz said.

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.

June 18, The Oval: Beat India by 180 runs- Fakhar, caught off a no-ball on three, makes 114 his maiden ODI century as Pakistan pile up 338 for four after India captain Virat Kohli wins the toss in the final.

He dismissed three of the world s top (ODI) batsmen in Rohit Sharma (nought), India captain Virat Kohli (five) and Shikhar Dhawan (21) in a stunning new-ball spell. "Sometimes you have to sit and say, 'The guy is good enough on the day to tackle anything.' You can only do so much".

"Credit to everyone for standing up and showing that resilience and reaching the finals - (but) we were outplayed in all departments".

Gaining sweet revenge over India, Pakistan thrashed their arch rivals by 180 runs at The Oval to win the Champions Trophy for the first time.

The now fit-again Amir removes all of India's top three as the champions slump to 33 for three in nine overs before being dismissed for just 158.

It includes 30 deaths that already have been confirmed, and reports of people who are missing and presumed to have been killed. Mr Kempthorne said: "We were making as much noise as we could outside to wake people up, but we woke them up to die".

Only Zimbabwe have visited Pakistan since a 2009 attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in Lahore which prompted all other major teams to call off tours. "I am confident that the faith and trust of the Pakistan cricket team will be strengthened with this performance of the side", Sarfraz said.

Pakistan have been starved of global cricket in their own country since an attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in 2009, forcing them to play their "home" series at neutral venues.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the official team of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 earlier today.

Amir struck just three balls into India s reply when, after bowling two outswingers to Sharma, he had him lbw with an inswinger.

"Victory in the final has its own significance, it has added to the confidence of the little-known players who performed superbly and has given a new identity to the team after losing to India", they said. "I took my time to begin with, you look at the wicket, and then play your natural game". We wanted to be a lot more consistent.

In the semi-final against England, Zaman scored a run a ball 57 and shared a 118 run opening stand with Ali to help Pakistan chase down 212 comfortably.

"I mean, today was a bit too far-fetched because we knew one more wicket and it will keep getting tougher".
