Champions Trophy Final, Live: Azhar Out, Fakhar put Pakistan on the front foot

The game that always ‘stops two nations’ comes again to a third when title-holders India face Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final at London’s Oval ground on Sunday. And the question millions of cricket fans around the world, possibly even a billion, are all asking is ‘which Pakistan will turn up?’ But few would dispute that India-Pakistan is now the world game’s premier contest – certainly not the ICC who, by their own admission, now fix the draw at their events to ensure the Asian giants meet in the group phase. Join us in all the action as it unfolds on an action-packed Sunday.

India vs Pakistan live score and wicket updates from Champions Trophy final


After 20 overs, Pakistan 114/0: 50 for Azhar Ali. 50 for Fakhar Zaman. Much to cheer for Pakistan. An expensive over for Jadeja, two boundaries, 11 runs. Azhar first brings up his 50 with a single and then a horror misfield by Yuvraj, brings up Fakhar’s 50.
