ICC Champions trophy : Virat Kohli slammed by Geoffrey Boycott for taking filed in final
Virat Kohli has been slammed by England legend Geoffrey Boycott for his decision to field first in the ICC Champions Trophy final against Pakistan. No matter who he may have consulted before the toss, the ultimate on-field decision is taken by the captain, and it is he who must take the blame. By putting Pakistan in to bat, Virat Kohli allowed them to get on top, and dug India's grave. On the back of Fakhar Zaman’s century and fifties from Azhar Ali and Mohammad Hafeez, Pakistan finished on 338/4 from their 50 overs after being put in to bat. In reply, India were bowled out for 158 in 30.3 overs and claimed their maiden Champions Trophy after beating India by 180 runs.
