Following are five key moments that helped Pakistan win the Champions Trophy for the first time with a crushing 180-run victory over holders India at The Oval on Sunday.

India have done well chasing down targets so captain Virat Kohli opted to put his rivals in to bat first.

It proved to be a good toss to lose as Sarfraz said he would also have elected to field if he had won it.

With his bat tucked under his arm, Fakhar begins the long walk back to the pavilion as the Indians celebrate grabbing their first wicket with only four Pakistan runs on the board.

The celebrations swiftly change direction, however, when replays on the big scoreboard show that Jasprit Bumrah had bowled a no ball and Fakhar is called back to the crease.

It proved to be a costly no ball as Fakhar goes on to score his first international century before falling for 114.

The Indian captain had come into the match with an astonishing batting average of 253 runs in this year’s tournament, having been dismissed only once in four matches.

Amir, once vilified for his role in the 2010 Pakistan spot-fixing scandal which led to him serving a prison term in London, was at his brilliant best when he produced a devastating opening spell.

India still had three wickets in hand but the deafening cheers from the Pakistan fans made clear that the end was nigh.
