Pakistan dominated with both bat and ball to thrash a rather off-colour defending champions India by 180 runs to win their maiden ICC Champions Trophy title here on Sunday. The south Asian nation claimed their third ICC tournament, having earlier won the 50-over World Cup in 1992 and the World Twenty20 in 2009. Put in to bat, Pakistan rode on a century by opener Fakhar Zaman to post a massive total of 338 for 4 in the allotted 50 overs. In reply, India were all out for 158 runs in 30.3 overs. For Pakistan, pacers Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali bagged three wickets each.

This was the biggest margin of victory in any ICC ODI tournament in terms of runs. The previous highest was registered by Australia when they thrashed India by 125 runs in the 2003 World Cup final in Johannesburg. Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali finished as the highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 13 scalps. The right-armer was also adjudged as the player of the tournament. Ali is also the first bowler to take four successive three-wicket hauls in the Champions Trophy.
