Pakistan post massive 338-4 against India in Champions Trophy final

Pakistan post massive 338-4 against India in Champions Trophy final”

It remains to be seen if Pakistan records another upset in the final match to return home as champions or it's going to be a one-sided affair in India's favour as was witnessed during the previous duel.

The India-Pakistan clash, which is often referred to as the "mother of all battles", is all set to once-again fill the cricket fans with enthusiasm and anticipation as the two arch-rivals meet each other for the second time in a month's time in the high-voltage final of the Champions Trophy at the Kennington Oval in London today. "I said it before the England game, if we put our "A" game together and do the basics well, we can beat anybody".

Arthur, a former coach of both his native South Africa and Australia, labelled Pakistan's performance that day as "shambolic".

India was dominant and thrilling; Pakistan, for all its desire to jettison its "20th century" approach to one-day cricket, was a shambles.

India were in huge trouble as they were 62 for the loss of five wickets after 15 overs.

"What I do know is that Mohammad Amir, he's a big match player", said South African Arthur.

After India had won the toss, Fakhar, on three, was caught by wicketkeeper Mahehdra Singh Dhoni off a Jasprit Bumrah no-ball and the 27-year-old left-hander took full advantage to make his first worldwide century. It wasn't the norm because we had prepared properly.

"We are ready with our plans for the match against India".

"That was an aberration". Hopefully we can post more than 300.

India, for all the strength of a top-order featuring skipper Virat Kohli, the world's top-ranked ODI batsman, had much to do against one of the best bowling attacks in this eight-team tournament if they were to retain their title.

"It's a young team, credit goes to my boys, this tournament can be a great booster for us".

A maiden over was bowled by Amir which was eleven of the innings.

Imran also advised Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed to avoid putting India into bat first if he won the toss in the final.

"I want to congratulate Pakistan first, they had an awesome tournament".

But Pakistan, the lowest-ranked side in a tournament featuring the world's leading eight one-day global nations, bounced back to beat top-seeded South Africa and then held their nerve in a tense virtual quarter-final with Sri Lanka in Cardiff on Monday.

"They were more intense and passionate today, they deserved to win".

Two overs into the match, opener Sharma succumbed to a LBW, whereas skipper and heavy-hitter Kohli was caught out by Shadab Khan, and Dhawan was caught out by Sarfaraz Ahmed.
