View dismissal Azhar Ali run out (†Dhoni/Bumrah) 59 99 71 6 1 83.09
22.6 from Ashwin, he's gone! His partner was ball watching and he has to pay for it! Azhar's one! India have their breakthrough. The Oval erupts. Oh, this is poor from Pakistan. There's always a single there, and Azhar had made sure of it, placing the clip to the left of square leg. And it's India's weak fielder there too - Bumrah. He basically trips over himself and falls on top of the ball. Then has the good sense to pick the right end - the keeper's - and Azhar has to walk off, muttering to himself. 128/1
View dismissal Fakhar Zaman c Jadeja b Pandya 114 142 106 12 3 107.54
33.1 slogged into the air - and brilliantly taken by Jadeja running back from point! Pandya has taken the BIG wicket, Zaman won't be finishing this innings off, he departs for a sparkling maiden ton - and India have a window to get back in and try to burgle the initiative again! Ugly shot, stepping away and trying to smear over the leg side, the ball was pushed a touch wide for that, and it went straight up and down behind square on the off side 200/2
View dismissal Babar Azam c Yuvraj Singh b Jadhav 46 84 52 4 0 88.46
42.3 the floater does it, chipped to long-off! Babar was moving around his crease, Jadhav continued to dolly the ball up innocuously, no pace on it for the batsman to work with and he sends it straight down the throat of Yuvraj standing on the boundary. No fifty for Babar, and Jadhav's, ahem, efforts pay off again 267/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Jadhav b Kumar 12 29 16 0 1 75.00
39.4 and he wins over the distance, too! TKO for Malik, who swats an ungainly shot high out towards deep cover for a simple catch! This was short outside off, Malik seemed to be trying to forehand smash it through the off side but sent it ballooning up and over the infield 247/3

View dismissal RG Sharma lbw b Mohammad Amir 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 you absolute beauty! This is why Pakistan wanted Amir, even a version that only just recovered from a back spasm. The inswing. This scary, sensational, freakish ability to move the ball even on the flattest conditions at searing pace. Rohit is about as ready for this ball as the we are for Bruce Willis to actually go to outer space and drill a hole into an asteroid. #Armageddon. Stuck in the crease, plays around his front pad. Pinned on the knee roll.,Gone 0/1
View dismissal S Dhawan c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Amir 21 42 22 4 0 95.45
8.6 nicked off, It's Amir again! This time with extra bounce! Is there anything he can't do?! The perfect ball. It's a cross-seamer - brilliant thinking - in that off stump corridor. Dhawan loads up the glide to third man, as Amir might have predicted as he held the ball across the seam, willing it to bounce more. And it does. Grazes the outside edge through to Sarfraz who leaps for joy. This is the power of a fast bowler on a mission. They end games in a matter of minutes. 33/3
View dismissal V Kohli* c Shadab Khan b Mohammad Amir 5 11 9 0 0 55.55
2.4 got him next ball. Amir, you legend! He takes flight. He punches the air like it spoke ill of his family. A fit, even a half fit bowler like him is worth tons for a team. This is back of a length, on off stump, and Kohli, looking to move across and flick into the on side gets a leading edge straight to point. Amir makes him play early. Amir sends him back. Amir puts a smile on Pakistan's face. Amir is making The Oval chant his name 6/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh lbw b Shadab Khan 22 49 31 4 0 70.96
12.6 huge appeal for lbw, Shadab thinks it is pad first, and it's the sharp-turning leggie as well. Shadab is absolutely certain. He has convinced his captain to review. Replays show that it is pad first. Hits low as well. But Yuvi has a decent stride in. On-field call is not out. But it has to be changed! Ball-tracker shows it will hit middle of middle and the 18-year old has a strike all his own. Made his captain take DRS and then celebrates a vital wicket. 54/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni c Imad Wasim b Hasan Ali 4 23 16 0 0 25.00
13.3 taken by the deep square leg fielder. Dhoni's gone! The leg trap, the short ball trap was set and it's been sprung! There's a quick check for the no-ball. And Hasan's fine. He is better than fine after bowling this short ball, rising up towards Dhoni's ribs, cramping him on middle and leg. The batsman swings hard, and he's a good puller, Dhoni. This time though, he top edges to Imad, running in and diving foward. Hasan pulls out his trademark celebration, the pretend smoke bomb onto the pitch and as the smoke clears he is there, arms spread wide, looking like a proper hero. 54/5
View dismissal KM Jadhav c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Shadab Khan 9 18 13 2 0 69.23
16.6 top edge and the captain takes it himself at cover! "Yaaaah," he yells feeling a Champions Trophy coming his way. He sees Jadhav shaping to pull a short ball, he loves that it goes straight up, he sends nearly six of his team-mates rushing for the same catch back and takes it himself 72/6
View dismissal HH Pandya run out (Mohammad Hafeez/Hasan Ali) 76 46 43 4 6 176.74
26.3 Hasan Ali to Jadeja, mix up! Pandya's run out! He is furious and well he might be... Jadeja played into the covers, not sure if he called but Pandya was well down, his partner had begun to move down the pitch before turning back and the fielder had time to pick his end, throwing to Hasan to complete a simple run-out. Terrible from Jadeja, ball-watching and costing India their last hope 152/7
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Babar Azam b Junaid Khan 15 41 26 0 0 57.69
27.3 slashed to slip, Pakistan are two away! Jadeja falls on his sword, having impaled Pandya in the previous over, first wicket for Junaid thanks to a sharp catch at wide-ish slip 156/8
View dismissal R Ashwin c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Hasan Ali 1 11 3 0 0 33.33
28.1 Hasan gets another, nicked to the keeper! Sarfraz comes charging up in celebration as the umpire sends Ashwin on his way... Shortish outside off, draws a little fiddle from the batsman and the men in green explode again 156/9

View dismissal JJ Bumrah c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Hasan Ali 1 10 9 0 0 11.11
30.3 dug in, flapped into the air, Sarfraz tears forward and leaps to claim the catch that wins Pakistan the Champions Trophy! Hasan, the tournament's leading wicket-taker, crowns victory with his third and Pakistan haven blown India away by 180 runs! 158/10
