London, June 18: Riding on Fakhar Zaman's brilliant century and an all-round bowling effort, Pakistan thrashed defending champions India by a margin of 180 runs in the Champions Trophy final here on Sunday (June 18).
Defending a mammoth target of 338, Pakistan restricted a star-studded Indian side to a paltry 158 in 30.3 overs to lift their maiden Champions Trophy title at The Oval.
Earlier, India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and invited his Pakistani counterpart Sarfraz Ahmed to bat first. Zaman slammed maiden ODI century of his career to lay the foundation for a big total against arch-rivals.
It is the first final between India and Pakistan in a 50-over ICC tournament. The arch-rivals met 10 years ago in the inaugural ICC T20 2007, in which Team India came out victorious.
Defending champions India had got the better of the rivals in the league stage of the ongoing tournament.
Kohli had declared that nothing extra is needed to get the same result despite the turnaround by Ahmed's men since but the Pakistani batsmen batted exceptionally well to help them post a daunting total against India.
