On This Day In 2017: India Lost to Pakistan in ICC Champions Trophy final

On this day in 2017, Pakistan had the most famous and joyous win as they defeated India by 180 runs.

The final match of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy was played at The Oval in London between India and Pakistan, where India won the toss and opted to bowl first.

Pakistan won the ICC Champions Trophy for the first time posting their highest total.

Pakistan openers Azhar Ali and Fakhar Zaman posted 128 runs before Ali was run out 59 runs off the last ball of the 22nd over.

Zaman knocked 114 runs off 106 balls with the help of 12 fours and three sixes before falling to Hardik Pandya on the first ball of the 33rd over.

After his dismissal, Pakistani batsman Mohammad Hafeez kept the score ticking by seizing 57 not out off 37 balls, including four fours and three sixes.

Pakistan could post a massive total of 338/4 in fifty overs with the help of Mohammad Hafeez, Azhar Ali, and Fakhar Zaman.

India’s side had the worst start as they lost Rohit Sharma for zero runs and Virat Kohli for mere five runs, reducing India to 6/2.

Pakistan continued to dismiss Indian players like Shikhar Dhawan (21), Yuvraj Singh (22), MS Dhoni (4), and Kedar Jadhav (9) in quick succession, leaving India reeling at 72/6.

Their poor display continued until Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja scored rapid 80 runs with their partnership.

India was all out at 30.3 overs with 158 runs, giving Pakistan a win by 180 runs.
