Pakistan inflicted a massive 180-run defeat upon title-holders and favourites India at the Oval in London on Sunday to win the tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day global nations.

Bottom-ranked Pakistan produced a breathtaking display at London's Oval on Sunday to inflict a 180-run defeat upon arch rivals India, the title-holders, in the climax of a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide nations.

Fakhar Zaman found the flawless time to post a maiden ODI hundred and lay the platform for Pakistan's imposing 4-338 against India in the Champions Trophy final at The Oval.

Fakhar and Azhar produced a stand of 128, the first consecutive opening century partnership by Pakistan in 14 years.

Pakistan's Babar Azam has rocketed to a career-best fifth position after gaining three positions with scores of 46 in the final and 30 not out in the semi-final.

India won the toss and chose to put Pakistan into bat - a decision that turned out to be a bad call. They were confident about India's win against Pakistan and prove who's the father i.e. a better team.

Amir was the man doing the damage, Pakistan's talisman taking three wickets to rip out India's top order. But they were likely regretting their decision as Pakistan racked up a stunning 338 runs in their 50 overs.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed added: "After the India match in the group stage, I told the players the tournament hadn't finished yet".

Fakhar then drove left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja for six. Zaman attacked, Azhar Ali anchored and India's bowlers tried and tried to no avail, the breakthrough finally coming through a run-out in which Zaman left Ali stranded more than halfway down the pitch.

"We just had to keep believing ... they kept on believing, trusting their roles (and) trusting the gameplan that "Saffy" (Sarfraz) and I had set up".

When asked about the preparation and the team's approach about the much-hyped match, Kohli said, "We have not spoken about the game in any different way".

Rookie Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman's Player-of-the-Match effort of 114 in the final and 57 in the semi-final has helped him break into the top 100 after just four ODIs as he has gained 58 positions after these two performances to reach 97th rank. Credit to Pakistan. They outplayed us.

"As a bowler and as a captain when that is happening. sometimes you have to sit and say "the guy is good enough on the day to tackle anything".
