to Rohit, out Lbw!! Given out lbw. Will Rohit review? He has a word with Dhawan and walks off. What a start for Pakistan. What a blow that is for them. Big big wicket as Rohit had made a tremendous 100 in the semis. This pitched around leg, moved in a bit, Rohit's front foot got too far across, as he was trying to flick, missed and once he did that he was in trouble. Pitching in-line as Hawk-Eye shows, umpire's call on height as it was given. Just hit the pad near the kneeroll. Pitched a smidgen in-line, or else that wasn't out. Rohit was a bit lazy there and that caused his downfall. strikes and Pakistan are gung-ho. Rohit lbw b 0(3)

D

to Kohli, no run, wow! You don't do that. You don't. Pakistan fans cover their faces in horror. Mickey Arthur has his hands on his head unable to believe what he has just seen. Azhar Ali wants the ground to open up, so that he can be swallowed right in. Regulation edge to his right at first slip and after two-three attempts, he has dropped it. What a clanger. Look at , he is kicking the turf in disgust. Mouthing one expletive after the other. What cricket. It was the delivery that has Kohli in trouble, in the corridor of uncertainty, on a good length, off the edge as he tried to defend. Straight in and out. The second slip had a chance to take it on the rebound, but it went to ground. The whole of India breathe a sigh of relief

W

to Kohli, out Caught by Shadab Khan!! He is gone. Gone next ball. Pakistan breathe again. Pindrop silence all around the world from an Indian supporter. Maybe even shock. Kohli certainly is in that state of mind now. Cannot believe that he has leading-edged the flick straight to the fielder at backward point. Maybe it's his aggressive instinct that has got him out here. He needed to settle his testosterone. But went for a flick to a ball that was slanting across him, on a fuller length, he had leading-edged one earlier in the over, trying a similar shot, and now he has found the fielder. Shadab is one of the best in this side and he doesn't drop that. Micky Arthur and go wild. The bowler letting it all out. Is that the Cup? Could well be. What a spell this is from . What a bowler. I just saw the replay of the Kohli wicket now, the catch was travelling and at head-height to Shadab and he made it look so easy. Also did the football knee-first slide into the ground celebration as soon as the catch was taken. Anyone remembers Jose Mourinho? Kohli c Shadab Khan b 5(9)

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, good pull. Head-high, short ball, Dhawan takes it on and hooks to the deep backward square leg fence, one bounce over the ropes. Fine leg was too wide of that to have any chance

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, a counter-punch from Dhawan. Picks the slower delivery outside off and threads the needle between cover and mid-off. Drives and gives Imad a chase, which he fails. Two fours in the over

4

Khan to Yuvraj, FOUR, Yuvraj takes the pull on and gets lucky. Good short ball, following Yuvraj who pull and the top edge easily lobs Sarfraz. Khan has his hands on his head

4

Khan to Dhawan, FOUR, short and wide outside off, Dhawan stands tall and slaps it hard to the left of cover-point and it races away. He is so good with his eyes, is this Dhawan

4

Khan to Dhawan, FOUR, now to the right of a diving cover-point. Again too much width outside off, Dhawan allowed the hands to come through and then flayed the cut. Right through the host of off-side fielders

W

to Dhawan, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Three down. takes off his aeroplane. And shrieks in delight. The cross-seamer does the trick for him. Landed on a good length outside off, held its line and took the edge of Dhawan's bat. Dhawan has got out so many times like this in Tests, when the ball does something off the surface. His feet don't move - he stays besides the line of the ball and only relies on his hand-eye co-ordination to bail him out. This time, the healthy snick is taken by Sarfraz. Nothing shot too as there was a slip in place. The extra over to has proved to be a fine ploy as he takes out Dhawan. Dhawan c Sarfraz b 21(22) [4s-4]

4

to Yuvraj, FOUR, comes down the track and takes it on the volley, flicks over mid-wicket and deep square had no chance. Yuvraj took the chance early in the over and it has paid off

4

to Yuvraj, FOUR, good use of the feet and four. Takes it on the full, strokes it wide of the diving mid-on. The fielder was placed a bit square and he couldn't get there

4

to Yuvraj, FOUR, "come on yaar" shouts Sarfraz. In pain. That's Yuvraj at his early 2000s best. Vintage Yuvraj back foot punch, past the diving cover and mid-off was just a spectator. The ball was a trifle short and Yuvraj latched on. Three fours in that over

W

Khan to Yuvraj, out Lbw!! Four down and India are in deep trouble. The teenager strikes in his first over. It was he who persuaded his skipper to go for the review. The previous one was a googly and this time he smartly bowls the leg-break. Yuvraj gets a good stride forward to block. But the bat is behind the pad. Turns in and raps Yuvraj on the front leg in front of off. Hitting middle of middle. Yuvraj lbw b Khan 22(31) [4s-4]

W

Ali to Dhoni, out Caught by Imad Wasim!! Ali continues to have a great tournament. He gets the better of 'the finisher'. The umpires ask MS to wait to check if it's a no-ball. All fine and Dhoni has to walk back. The trap was set and Dhoni falls for it. bangs it short and Dhoni can't stop himself from playing the pull shot. Doesn't time it well and there isn't sufficient power behind it as well. Imad Wasim, at deep mid-wicket, run forward and takes a sharp, low catch. He collected it inches above the ground. 54-5! Dhoni c Imad Wasim b Ali 4(16)

4

Khan to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, one bounce and into the fence. Rare bad ball from . Drags his length short and Jadhav takes full toll of it. He is quick to go on the back foot and pummel it over mid-wicket with a pull

4

Ali to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, wow! He made that look so easy. Length ball just outside off, not much of a backlift there, but still he has enough power to whip it wide of mid-on. That's wristy work and the ball races away

4

Khan to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, width on offer outside off and Pandya latches onto it. Waits for it on the back foot and powerfully cuts it behind point

W

Khan to Kedar Jadhav, out Caught by Sarfraz!! That's it! I guess India have already lost this mentally. Wasn't the greatest of the deliveries. It was on a shortish length, Jadhav went back to pull, bounces a bit more than he anticipated. The ball balloons up off the top-edge. Sarfraz calls for it, moves towards short cover and gathers it with both hands. He roars in delight. Kedar Jadhav c Sarfraz b Khan 9(13) [4s-2]

4

Ali to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, ah! He actually wanted to let that go. But the short ball kept coming in at him. Pandya bends his back backwards and periscopes it over first slip

6

Khan to Hardik Pandya, SIX, shot! First six off the innings. It was drifting in and ended up right in the slot for Pandya to go for the big hit. Bludgeons it high and over long-on

4

Khan to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, poor ball and gets the treatment it deserved. A long-hop and there's width on offer for the batsman to free his arms. Waits for it on the back foot and slaps it with a cross bat through extra cover

6

Khan to Hardik Pandya, SIX, drifting in delivery that ends up on leg-stump line. In the right zone for Pandya to clear his left leg and tonk it over cow corner

6

Khan to Hardik Pandya, SIX, back to back. I reckon is bowling too full to Pandya. Quicker as well. Clubbed over long-on for six more. Well over long-on's head

6

Khan to Hardik Pandya, SIX, hat-trick of sixes and Pandya brings up his fifty in style. Fastest in an event final. A bit of turn on this leg-cutter, doesn't trouble Pandya, who once again clears his front foot to clobber it straight down the ground

4

Khan to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, four more! Pandya is playing his shots here. Tossed up delivery outside off, Pandya drives and drives hard. Drills it over extra cover

6

Zaman to Hardik Pandya, SIX, drags this tossed up ball from outside off. Has put enough power on it to clear the fence. One man has not given up, or maybe a few more

6

Zaman to Hardik Pandya, SIX, take a bow! Swimming against the current is Hardik Pandya and doing pretty well so far. The lungs have not given up. Kneels down to a flighted delivery and then dispatches it over the cow corner. Mighty blow

W

Ali to Jadeja, out Hardik Pandya Run Out!! Look at Hardik Pandya. He is dejected. Furious is the word. Cannot believe. His hopes crash. Was carrying the burden of a nation on his relatively new shoulders but crumbles under the pressure. Here's what happened: Jadeja patted to cover and Hardik Pandya sensed a run... so he ran. Almost blindly. Jadeja did not want that. Not sure he even called. Pandya had reached the striker's end, so close he could have hugged Jadeja in the moment of despair. Does not even look back. Hafeez's throw is decent enough and Pakistan can see their name getting engraved on the trophy. Miller-du Plessis moment there. Hardik Pandya run out (Hafeez/ Ali) 76(43) [4s-4 6s-6]

W

Khan to Jadeja, out Caught by Babar Azam!! Find a corner at the Oval and ensconce for a while there, Jadeja. Don't go back to the dressing room. There's Pandya. Shortish ball, not wide enough and Jadeja cuts, too close to the body. Top edge that flies to the man at slip. And this time it's not Azhar Ali, so there is no fumble. Jadeja c Babar Azam b Khan 15(26)

W

Ali to Ashwin, out Caught by Sarfraz!! It was supposed to be a one-sided game, right? It is. Ali celebrates, in his usual style. Afridi with hands going down, helping the chest protrude out. Back of a length delivery outside off, Ashwin drives on the up, watering down the efforts of Bhuvneshwar who wanted to make Pakistan bowl 50 overs. The edge carries beautifully to the keeper. Ashwin c Sarfraz b Ali 1(3)

W

Ali to Bumrah, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Cornered Tigers romp home to a Champions Trophy title! Their maiden title win, and coming against India, their arch-rivals. Bumrah is in a tangle with a shortish ball that's speeding at him. Looks to pull but all he elicits is a glove, that is taken by Sarfraz in front of the lone slip fielder. The captain runs, ball in hand, with his arms wide open, and forms the seed for Pakistan's collective embrace. What a day for cricket. India have been scythed away with disdain, in cricket, on a day they mauled Pakistan 7-1 in hockey. Life and its ways. Bumrah c Sarfraz b Ali 1(9)

OT

to Fakhar Zaman, 1 run, "yeah, yeah," is the shout from Fakhar Zaman for a quick single and a direct-hit would have been curtains for him. He's been cramped for room and he is desperate for runs. Just taps this short of length delivery that swung away slightly to short cover and set off, Kedar attacked the ball and had a shy at the bowler's end but missed

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, oh the inside edge escapes past the sticks. Good length delivery from , Fakhar Zaman tries to push at it and gets away with a thick edge that beats fine leg comfortably

4

to Azhar Ali, FOUR, that's a flat-batted hit down the ground and from the middle of the bat too. Short of a length delivery from , Azhar Ali played a pull shot very straight, timed the ball sweetly and sent it between the umpire and the non-striker

4

to Fakhar Zaman, leg byes, FOUR, that's gone off the helmet. That's a sharp bouncer at 136kph. Fakhar Zaman was late on the pull shot as he didn't expect that, the ball hits the side of the helmet and goes between the keeper and wide slip

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, big open space at square leg on the on-side and Fakhar Zaman attacks the bowler by jumping out of the crease. Bhuvi tried to cramp him for room with a short ball but the batsman managed to time the pull shot well enough to send it to the boundary

4

to Azhar Ali, FOUR, edgeddd and four! This is the first time India's new ball bowlers have been put under real pressure very early. Good length delivery outside off stump, Azhar Ali throws his bat at it as he targets the point region, gets a thick edge that flies through the vacant second slip region and beats third man

4

to Azhar Ali, FOUR, that's neatly placed behind square on the on-side and Yuvi can't cut off running to his left at fine leg. Slower delivery it looked from , Ali waited for the ball to come and rolled his wrists on the shot to get it in the gap

6

to Azhar Ali, SIX, and that's a good hit, more for the intent than the shot itself. Azhar Ali knows that Kohli is a little worried in his head and has had to turn to very early. He doesn't want to let the bowler settle, steps down the pitch and lofts the offie over the long-off boundary

4

to Azhar Ali, FOUR, that's a fine hit from Azhar Ali. No one at fine leg and backward square leg is inside the ring as well, Azhar Ali gets inside the line of the ball and sweeps well, splits short fine and backward square to collect another boundary

OT

to Azhar Ali, 1 run, Rohit Sharma misses a direct-hit and Azhar Ali escapes. He would have been out by a long way. Short of a length delivery just outside off stump Azhar Ali hops and flicks to the right of mid-wicket and sets off, Ro turns, takes aim and fires, but misfires

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, he doesn't move his feet much, so anything that is full is easy pickings for Fakhar Zaman. Got to bowl the angle across him to test Fakhar Zaman. This is a nice straight drive and it goes down the ground for four

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, why have a slip when you aren't going to bowl outside off stump and focus only on cramping the batsman for room? The slider again, Fakhar Zaman steps out and flicks through the vacant mid-wicket region for four more

4

Pandya to Azhar Ali, FOUR, edgeddd and over the man at backward point. Good length delivery outside off stump, Azhar Ali tries to cut, gets it on the outside half of the bat and got a thick enough edge to evade the fielder inside the ring

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, a dance, the wielding hammer and an impersonation of Kohli. All in a motion. Not a bad way to get your side past a 100. The first of many Pakistan would want. Jumps down, gets up, close and personal and whips it past mid-on

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, width, minus the turn coming in. And add the shortened long hop to it. The arms unfurl successfully this time with an angry slap. This time past the reach of point. He has a measure of the field I tell you

OT

to Azhar Ali, 1 run, come the final, comes the big man. Gets a slider on the hips, toys around with the angle. Milks it around the corner with a tickle. Here's the fifty. Twice in two matches against India

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, he's not to be left behind. Helped by some generosity from the man at backward point. Yuvraj. Very sloppy in just not getting down in time to let the ball burst through the palms. Courtesy a cut. Half-ton #3

4

to Azhar Ali, FOUR, a truckload of filth in the half tracker. When you anger MS behind the stumps, it only means one thing. Backs away with a stab in imparting the direction on it as he waits on it to take matters under his eyeline

W

to Azhar Ali, out Azhar Ali Run Out!! Oh the obsession with watching the ball - means you do not watch your partner. The outcome - both batsmen at the same end. What a waste. What a throwaway of a start that was threatening to be historic. And when there was a single in it. The brain fade seems to have caught on as Azhar politely taps one into square leg and takes off. Without bothering to respond to the denial from Zaman. A slide, a pick up and a throw at the striker's end. One of the easiest of bail whips for Dhoni. Azhar Ali run out (Bumrah/Dhoni) 59(71) [4s-6 6s-1]

6

to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, the charge, the dispatch. Six #100 over the last 18 days. Gallops down, right to the pitch and a full blooded tonk to send it into the crowds. Behind the sightscreen

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, the typical defensive response. has dragged it down. Just what the mind reader Zaman was waiting for. Rocks back, and rubs it in with a flash. The point fence now to bear the brunt

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, the dancing boots take over. Down, away, over..all in the same motion. With the field memorized, he doesn't even bother keeping the inside-out lofted drive down

6

to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, the moment gets it straight, Zaman is more than happy to take it from the point of pitch contact. Jumps down, looks stretched but makes enough contact with the wood to ensure the slam down finds the fence

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, make it 17. An outside edge this time. Does it matter? A wafty push away from the body, and with no one bothering to man the cordon, the every miscue past Dhoni is headed in one direction. Only. With a boundary against it

4

Pandya to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, the gloved pull. Enough off the bat. Throws his hands up compulsively at the sight of the short one and takes his eyes off for a change. The outcome doesn't. Past the keeper

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, maiden hundred and what an occasion, what an opponent. Joys written all over his face as he takes off the helmet to show that. Bows down (the Sajda) and then acknowledges the crowd. Some shot to get there, fetched this sweep from miles outside off and sent it roaring to the deep backward square leg fence

6

to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, wow! can do no right! Or Fakhar Zaman is not allowing him to. This one is tossed up and Fakhar Zaman clears the front leg and then slogs well over the deep mid-wicket fence, yards into the stands

W

Pandya to Fakhar Zaman, out Caught by Jadeja!! Jadeja has a fleet of horses and he runs like those. This time backwards from backward point and just when the commentator on air is about to say that it might fall in the safe land, Jaddu proves him wrong. Takes it with ease. Fakhar Zaman cleared his front leg and then tried to whack it, sliced off the outer part of the bat sending it high over the point region. There were a few men interested in it. But guess who reached first. But what an innings from Fakhar Zaman. Pakistan owe him this one. What an occasion to get your maiden ton. ps: Jadeja was following the ball which was over his head, going away from him. Brilliant fielding skills. Fakhar Zaman c Jadeja b Pandya 114(106) [4s-12 6s-3]

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, attempted yorker gone wrong. It's a full toss on the legs and Babar Azam easily puts away through square leg

4

Pandya to Babar Azam, FOUR, mid-wicket is in the ring and Babar Azam capitalizes. Stands tall on the front foot and heaves across the line. Not a wild heave, a calculated one to get over the man in the ring, races away

6

to Shoaib Malik, SIX, and in between those, there are sixes, helping Pakistan keep the run-rate over six. Steps down and goes with the turn over extra cover

4

Pandya to Babar Azam, FOUR, that's twice as much width as a batsman of Babar Azam's caliber would need. Was short as well, slashed it over backward point. Third man had no chance to his right

4

Pandya to Babar Azam, FOUR, he is turning it on. Pakistan's Kohli. That's what someone called him once. Uses the angle on his hips and tucks through fine leg. Off to the fence in no time

W

to Shoaib Malik, out Caught by Kedar Jadhav!! has machinated this wicket. What a bowler to have in the death overs. Short ball. Shoaib Malik makes room, has made before Bhuvi pitches it. There's no contigency plan to take it from around off, goes for a wierdo slap that has no power behind it. Skies towards Jadhav at sweeper cover. What an easy dismissal in the end. Shoaib Malik c Kedar Jadhav b 12(16) [6s-1]

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, now this will happen. Takes him on with his feet. Shimmies down and pumps him through vacant mid-off, uppishly. Go, fetch the ball, bowler!

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, went lower, round-armish but darts it down leg. India in the middle of a leg-stump fetish. Easily done by Hafeez. Sweeps it away for a boundary through fine leg

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, a front-foot pull! Comes down the track and invites the short ball, but there's not venom in this. Sits up and then Hafeez uses the arm-strength to pump the pull over mid-wicket. Hello, will the real Pakistan stand up please?

W

Jadhav to Babar Azam, out Caught by Yuvraj!! Babar Azam's nerves surrender to long-off. Falls 4 shrt of a fifty. And he dumps his wicket out to a part-timer, who ironically was the player who won India the semifinal. Now there's a little bit of drift on this ball. Perhaps ably slowed down by Jadhav too, who saw Babar Azam shimmying down the ground. So this ferocious loft is sliced off the outside half and settles into long-off's hands. Not a bad time for Sarfraz to come in, you'd say. Babar Azam c Yuvraj b Jadhav 46(52) [4s-4]

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, full and on the pads -- might have been a cutter -- but it's not good enough for Hafeez. Delays his flick. Through square leg, getting the placement right

6

Jadhav to Hafeez, SIX, over Pandya's reverse-cupped at long-on! He's leaped, reached for the ball over his head but it's been marauded by Hafeez here. Jumps down the track and mauls the ball with a straight bat. Gee, this can get tricky

6

Jadhav to Imad Wasim, SIX, uses the feet. Plenty of it from Pakistan today. Comes down and aligns his shot with the pace on this ball. Right over Jadhav's head. Why's he even bowling, again?

6

to Hafeez, SIX, that's why I didn't want to be a bowler when I was a kid. I wanted to be a text commentator. Gets a length ball and look what Hafeez has done. Clubbed it with utter disparage over square leg. Didn't even move his feet. Just read the length early and calibrated his vision

4

to Imad Wasim, FOUR, beats long-off to his left! Pandya there. Makes room and just pumps this slower back of a length delivery away. Read the slow ball there, and that's why

OT

to Hafeez, 1 run, 34-ball fifty for Hafeez! Gets a full toss that wished to be a yorker. Grimaces. Hafeez grimaces. He wanted more out of it

6

to Hafeez, SIX, don't have a sword? Wield your bat like that. He's nowhere close to the ball here. Like picking up a date from the next zip code. Extends arms and swats it back over 's head. Wow. Just arm-strength that. Could have played it on a wheelchair, for there was no fear
