Pakistan, who entered in the tournament as ranked eight team, had opened the group stage campaign with a huge loss of 124 runs via Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method against India.
Pakistan thrashed arch-rivals India by 180 runs to win the worldwide cricket tournament at The Oval in London, U.K. on Sunday.
Pakistan bowler Hasan Ali took three wickets, including the final wicket ofJasprit Bumrah caught by Pakistan Captain Sarfraz Ahmed, and went on to win the tournament's Golden Ball award at the top bowler throughout the competition.
He struck a crucial blow in his very next over when he dismissed India captain Virat Kohli.
Openers put a 128-run partnership off just 22.6 overs before Azhar (59) got run out due to a misunderstanding between the wicket.
Mohammad Hafeez and Azhar Ali also chipped in with half-centuries on the way to setting India a target of 339 - the highest ever ODI total scored by Pakistan in a final. The fact remained that a fully red-hot Pakistan team, the sentimental favourites for all that they are going through for inability to play at home, was the better team on the day and deserved to win the tournament.
Put in to bat first, they took advantage of one mistake from India, a no-ball, to run away with the game.
When asked about the 27-year-old's blitzkrieg, Kohli said that it becomes hard to contain an unorthodox batter like Zaman. "We have a young team and credit to my boys".
Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez said: "It's a great team effort".
India will feel aggrieved as Fakhar, on three, was caught by wicketkeeper Mahehdra Singh Dhoni off a Jasprit Bumrah no-ball and the 27-year-old left-hander took full advantage to reach his first global century.

On Friday, however, he turned his wrath for the attacks on the United States and Saudi Arabia, his country's fiercest rivals. He concludes by threatening the royal family of Saudi Arabia and promises, "after Iran, it will be your turn".
But Pakistan skipper Ahmed said that his team never lost confidence even after the drubbing by India to open the Champions Trophy tournament. Pandya looked to be the one Indian player timing the ball well and he had cleared the rope no less than six times before miscommunication with Ravi Jadeja saw him run out for a quickfire 76.
Today's match was a one-sided affair, with Pakistan outperforming India in all three departments. As Virat Kohli said in the post-match conference, it was just the probing, aggressive bowling display by Pakistan that did the Indian batting in.
Kohli accepted his side had been second best as he acknowledged Pakistan's "amazing tournament".
"I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an unbelievable tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have". The way they turned things round speaks volumes for the talent they have.
From that point, Pakistan changed gears scoring 33 runs in the next two overs with Jadeja and Ashwin leaking 16 and 17 runs. Pakistan will be out for revenge while India will aim to maintain their dominance when the arch-rivals meet in the final.
