Pakistan thrashed favourites India by 180 runs in a thrilling competition at London’s Oval ground to clinch their first ever Champions Trophy title on Sunday. The green shirts set up a daunting 339-run target for the men in blue, but Indian batting collapsed under a calculated bowling attack, all out at 158 runs in the 31st over.
Twitteratis have extended congratulations to the national team over their great victory.
