    20.5 goes for the sweep again, it's a touch shorter, though, and the bounce means he gets a top-edge. Easy catch at deep square leg, Hardik moves a few steps to his right and takes it with both hands, cupped at around shoulder height 91/3
    8.6 Bhuvneshwar provides India with the breakthrough. Shehzad has been given out leg-before. Shehzad chats with his partner and Pakistan decide against a review. Bhuvneshwar ventures wide of the crease, on a length and angled in, Shehzad plays across the line and is rapped on the front pad in front of off. The tracker returns three reds. Kohli roars and gives Shehzad a send-off 47/1
    12.2 short and wide outside off - much like the previous ball - Babar slashes in the air again, this time Jadeja moves to his right from backward point and tracks it down 61/2
    26.3 gone, Hafeez's rather tortured stay ends. Goes for the sweep from just outside off, makes decent contact but only picks out Bhuvneshwar running to his left rom deep square leg 131/5
    23.3 Ravindra Jadeja. What a left arm. Umesh sends down a length ball angling in towards top of off. Cramps Malik slightly, and he dabs it to the left of backward point and sets off for a single. He shouldn't have, because it was Jadeja moving quickly to the ball, towards his natural side. By the time he's realised and turned around, he's already out, caught out by a deadly, flat rocket of a direct hit 114/4
    29.3 oh my, keeper nicks to keeper. Almost guides it to the keeper. Looks for the open-faced dab to third man, but this back-of-a-length ball didn't offer him enough width, and bounced a touch extra to catch the outside third of the bat 151/7
    27.3 length ball slanting away from off stump, and Imad Wasim is out first ball. No footwork, just flays at it, middles it but hits it uppishly and straight to Jadhav at cover point. Went straight to him, but hard, and he took it well, getting down low and holding it with two hands over his head 135/6

    33.2 and another. Umesh gets his second. Back of a length, slanting across to off stump. Clears his front leg and looks to hit over cover, ends up hitting it flat, at catchable height 164/8
    33.4 shortish, angled into the body, and that is that. Wahab Riaz is not going to bat here. Cramped for room, beaten for pace, and he aims an aimless flick at the ball and loops the simplest of catches to Dhawan at midwicket 164/10

Match Notes

India dominant

12-2

India's win-loss record against Pakistan in the three major tournaments - the World Cup, Champions Trophy, and World T20

Feast in the last four

72

Expensive Wahab

10.03

Wahab Riaz's economy rate (87 in 8.4 overs), the most expensive for any spell of five or more overs in Champions trophy history

Solid top order

Prolific pair

Lucky toss?

A Win due since long
