Follow ICC Champions Trophy final score live

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 global century.

Pakistani opener Fakhar Zaman slammed his maiden century as Pakistan gain control in the ICC Champions trophy final against India at The Oval on Sunday.

India, who launched their title-defence with a 124-run thrashing of Pakistan, were unchanged from the side that hammered Bangladesh by nine wickets in Thursday's semi-final at Birmingham's Edgbaston. He replaces Rumman Raees.

Amir, who went wicketless in the first two Group B matches, against India and South Africa, contributed with both the bat and ball against Sri Lanka, to help the Green Brigade sail into the semi-finals.

Today's match was a one-sided affair, with Pakistan outperforming India in all three departments.

"It's just another game of cricket tomorrow, and whatever the result, we have to go forward and play more games after that".

However, a picture that evoked mutual admiration and went viral recently is the one which shows former Indian captain and current wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni carrying the son of Pakistani skipper Safaraz Ahmed in his arms.

After leaving India reeling on six for two following the dismissals of Sharma and Kohli, Amir's figures read 1.4 overs, four runs, two wickets. Two of those have been in this tournament, one by England past year and the other was by India in 2007.




Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was all praise for his team for staging a dramatic comeback after the loss to India in the league stage.

"When you win ugly, you learn a lot about the team".

India posted an impressive 319/3, before rain shortened the match and Pakistan were set a revised target of 289 to win in 41 overs.

India too have a well-balanced attack, with the new-ball duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah supported by contrasting spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin and left-armer Ravindra Jadeja.

Actor Sushmita who has been consistently tweeting about the game ever since it started wrote, "I love U INDIA!There is a reason why V R a leading team in d world...a defeat, however heartbreaking never defines us!#jaiHind" Riteish wrote, "Hard Luck Team INDIA ... we love you". They were threatening (to oppositions) instead of being self-destructive, they looked ready to play the waiting game instead of being unnecessarily glamorous.

On Zaman, he said: "He's a great impact player, in his first ICC event, he played like a champion, he can be a great player for Pakistan".

Pakistan, though, with their proven abilities to come out on top against the odds will be eager to stop India from completing a hat-trick of wins in the Champions Trophy and take the record to 13-2 as the teams square off in what is going to be a keenly-watched encounter.
