Pakistan vs India live commentary

Well, it is time for us to wind up now. It has been an amazing experience commentating throughout this fascinating tournament. And that is it from us here at Sportskeeda. This is Tejas Venkatesh signing off and on behalf of the Sportskeeda commentary team comprising of Sumedh Pande, Sabyasachi Chowdhury, and Rupin Kale, it is goodbye to you all until the next tournament. Keep following Sportskeeda for all the latest action from the world of cricket.
The Indian team did an outstanding job as well. Today was not their day at all. It all began with the no-ball wicket and to add to their miseries, the same man, Fakhar Zaman went on to make a hundred which hurt India dearly. Barring this match, India lived up to the favorites tag thoroughly. They thrashed Pakistan in the first encounter but suffered a shocking blow in the second. However, they outplayed South Africa and decimated Bangladesh to make it to the final. On the big day, the choice to bowl first did not help them as Pakistan enjoyed the freedom they were given. Chasing 339 was always a challenge and when you lose 3 for 33 it is tremendously laborious. They should be content that they lost to the better side although a loss to Pakistan will almost never be forgiven in the cricket frenzy nation.
A victory lap with the trophy by the Pakistan team. Their supporters are still in the stands to celebrate and cheer their players. They remained unpredictable throughout. After the defeat in the first game, they bounced back very well and here they are, winners of the ICC Champions Trophy.
Virat Kohli says, "Congrats to Pakistan. They turned things around really well and outplayed us today. I can smile because I am proud of my boys. We gave our best shot but they were more intense and passionate today. With the ball, we could have had more wicket-taking opportunities. We have always tried to do our best and Hardik was brilliant today. His knock was outstanding. All said and done, we need to move forward and learn from our mistakes. The pitch was consistent and we were not good on the day and we will take that on the chin and move on."

Sarfaraz Ahmed says, "We did not believe after the first game. But I told the boys that if we play well, we have a chance. I think Zaman played a champion batsman. Amir bowled brilliantly and all the bowlers bowled really well. These are a young bunch of team and when we arrived here we thought we have nothing to lose. Credit goes to the players and the team management. It is a proud moment for the whole nation. Thank you."
The Player of the Tournament award goes to Hasan Ali. Courtesy his 13 wickets and well, he was also the man who scalped the last wicket.
The Golden Ball award goes to Hasan Ali for his 13 wickets in the tournament.
The Golden Bat award goes to Shikhar Dhawan for his 338 runs at an average of 68.66.
The player of the match in the final is Fakhar Zaman.
The presentation ceremony will be underway in a couple of minutes.
This tournament was just a glimpse of what is to come in the 2019 edition of the World Cup. Perhaps, that is why Champions Trophy is termed as a 'Mini World Cup'. Another fascinating fact which makes Pakistan's victory so special them is that they haven't played much at home in the last 6-7 years and even today, the Indian fans outnumbered the Pakistan fans and under these circumstances, they have won the prestigious ICC Champions Trophy.
The players are filled with elation and most of them in this team are tasting their first ICC event triumph. They are still out in the ground expressing the same and telling what it means to them. Sarfaraz Ahmed will now go down in Pakistan's history books as their first skipper to win the ICC Champions Trophy. Not to forget, England & Wales will host the 2019 Cricket World Cup as well in just two years time.
They had the likes of Kohli, Dhawan, and Dhoni in the bag but couldn't scalp Pandya. Well, they were even clueless about how to stop him until he gifted them his wicket. After that, Pakistan ensured they romped home in style. Hasan Ali cleaned up the tail and now Pakistan are the winners of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
Now when we look back, we can probably say that he Jadeja must and should have sacrificed his wicket there. Why won't you when Pandya is a proven match winner and when he is thrashing the Pakistan bowlers downright. Pandya was extremely displeased with that and could hardly forget it. And that was all Pakistan needed.
Hardik Pandya, well, he deserves special praise. What a fantastic player India boast now. What a sensational all-rounder he can and what a magnificent contributor he can be for this Indian side. Against all the odds, he gave India the real hope, probably a hope bigger than what he had early on in the innings. Pakistan did not have a clue to stop him but unfortunately, he was run out. 
India were completely blown away. They never really turned up for the final. At least, not the team we have seen so far in the tournament. Mohammad Amir bowled the spell of his life early on in the second innings and the India batsmen lost it mentally right there. The wickets of Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in quick succession helped Pakistan consolidate their strong position in the match.
They were deemed the underdogs, unpredictables, moderate team and what not but here they are, with the Champions Trophy crown. To add to their delight, they have defeated the defending champions India. Unbelievable stuff here.
Their first Champions Trophy title and it has come at the most unexpected time. They beat arch-rivals India by a whopping 180 runs.
30.3 OUT! Caught. Hasan Ali to Jasprit Bumrah. Bouncer, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to slips, by Ahmed. A good bouncer and Bumrah succumbs. Sarfaraz Ahmed takes the catch and Pakistan players are unstoppable here.
