Put in to bat first, Pakistan posted a mammoth 338 for four in the stipulated 50 overs and restricted Team India to a paltry 158 to register an incredible 180-run win.

With this win Pakistan, who were ranked 8th in the ICC ODI rankings before start of the tournament, silenced the critics who dismissed them in the race for the finals before start of the event.

After a shambolic defeat against India in their opening game, the boys in green produced a turnaround to win every game from there on.

Youngster Fakhar Zaman and talent pacer Mohammad Amir emerged as the match-winners for Pakistan in the final and ensured their team outclass India in every department of the game.

All four Asian teams i.e. Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have once again stamped their domination in the world cricket and proved they are a force to reckon with.

With Pakistan's win the ICC Champions Trophy has now came to an end, we now bring you best 10 Oppo Moments from the tournament, which will be remembered for long for its quality of cricket.


Here are the 10 Best OPPO Moments from CT 17:

Entire Pakistan team broke into celebration after skipper Sarfraz Ahmed caught last Indian wicket in Jasprit Bumrah. India were folded for 158 in 30.3 overs as left-arm pacer Hasan Ali got Bumrah caught behind for 1.

Pakistan defeated India by a whopping margin of 180 runs in the final which was predicted by very few before start of the tournament. And perhaps a fewer people would have predicted about Pakistan making it to finals let alone winning it.

No sooner than Sarfraz took Bumrah's catch the entire Pakistan team entered into celebration mode as they dispelled the popular belief and outclassed favourites India in every department of the game.
It was the No.1 Oppo Moment of the tournament.

The 27-year-old left-handed batsman made the most of the breather he got and made India pay for it as he added another 111 runs to his individual total from there on.

Zaman was caught behind the stumps when he was batting at 3 but Jasprit Bumrah had over stepped to be called a no ball.
The youngster, playing just his fourth ODI, played a sublime knock and targeted almost every Indian bowler. His knock was laced with 12 boundaries and 3 sixes. His maiden century was the second best Oppo Moment of the tournament.

Miller's bizarre way to get AB de Villiers run out was one of the best Oppo Moments of the tournament.

Pakistani fast bowler Wahab Riaz felt a pain in his leg while bowling the 46th over. After 5 deliveries he was seen on the ground struggling with pain. India's Yuvraj Singh attended the player immediately and forwarded a helping hand.

This certainly deserved to be one of the best Oppo Moment of the CT 17.

Starc quickly then removed Mehedi Hasan and bundled Bangladesh for 182 in 44.3 overs. Starc returned with impressive figures of 4/29 from 8.3 overs. After Iqbal's departure, rest of the Bangladeshi batters were dismissed by Starc and all of them were clean bowled. The left-arm pacer's seventh over was the Oppo moment of the tournament.

The entire Champions Trophy 2017 tournament was packed with action and there were several selfie moments one could have captured with a OPPO F3 selfie expert phone.

While this phone can take an amazing solo selfie, the dual selfie camera allows you to take wide-angle group selfies with its 120-degree angle focus so that no one is left out of the frame. Also because of the wide angle, you can capture the entire background in your pictures as well.

All of us enjoy the passion that cricket followers display. Everyone is expecting many great things from Team India in the future and we are sure they will not disappoint.
