London, June 18 India captain Virat Kohli today defended his decision to bowl on a flat track and said a lucky reprieve for centurion Fakhar Zaman proved to be a costly one in the Champions Trophy final against pakistan here today.

Pakistan enhanced their long-held reputation as one of the most unpredictable teams in world sport with an extraordinary and overwhelming victory over bitter local rivals India in the Champions Trophy final on Sunday.

These numbers indicate their utter dominance in the two biggest games of the tournament, against two of the toughest opponents: they beat England by eight wickets with 77 balls to spare in the semi-finals, and thrashed India by 180 runs in the final.

He dismissed Rohit Sharma (nought), India captain Virat Kohli (five) and Shikhar Dhawan (21) in a stunning new-ball spell.

Earlier, Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day global hundred was the cornerstone of Pakistan's 338-4. Pakistan openers Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali came out with intent and scored the big runs from the word go. Azhar Ali, Babar Azam and Imad Wasim too chipped in with handy knocks while a late 57-run dash by Mohammed Hafeez lifted Pakistan to a solid 338.

India lost wickets in clusters and Mohammad Amir's three for 16 gave Pakistan the start they wanted.

In just his fourth match at this level the 27-year-old Fakhar - who had already posted two ODI fifties - completed a 92-ball hundred including two sixes when he swept Ashwin for his 12th four. His run out, thanks to Ravindra Jadeja, put Pakistan on the path to a landslide win.
