London: Pakistan has won the ICC Champions Trophy. India has failed to reach the target of 338 set by Pakistan, falling short by 180 runs. The team could only make a total of 158 runs by the end of the last wicket in 30.3 overs.

Rohit Sharma getting duck out and with continuous fall of wickets, India couldn’t build a solid partnership against Pakistan. Virat Kohli, who was caught out by Shadab in Mohammad Amir’s bowling, tried but failed to settle on the grease. The tail-enders have played relatively well, but hardly put any fight against Pakistan.

Hardik Pandya played well and contributed some decent score to India innings. His 76 runs in 43 balls was a much-needed innings to put some opposition against Pakistan.

On the other hand, Pakistan bowling and fielding contributed to their victory.
