Waseem Ahmed 18/06/2018

Exactly one year ago, Pakistan secured one of it’s most famous wins ever as they thrashed India by 180 runs in the 2017 Champions Trophy final in London.

Not many gave Pakistan a chance at the beginning of the tournament but Sarfraz Ahmed’s men gained momentum as the tournament wore on and came up with their best performance in the final to beat India, who were one of the pre-tournament favourites.

In the final, opener Fakhar Zaman smashed a breathtaking century as Pakistan posted a mammoth 338 for four. In reply, even a dropped chance off Virat Kohli failed to stop Pakistan from dismissing India for just 158 and securing a thumping win.

Here are the best moments from that unforgettable match.

Meanwhile, India’s U19 World Cup winning captain Prithvi Shaw said he draws inspiration from the dedication and fitness of his all-time favourite footballer – Cristiano Ronaldo.

“He is a great player; I like his game and his fitness. I keep watching videos of his workouts. They are quote inspiring,” Shaw was quoted as saying by the Economic Times.

Pakistan star all-rounder Shahid Afridi is well known for his fireworks on the field as he is for his actions off it.

Afridi is not only one of the most beloved cricketers in the world, his charity work with the Shahid Afridi Foundation has made him a popular figure outside the cricketing world as well.

On Saturday, Afridi gave his numerous fans more reasons to adore him as he posted an image of him cradling a deer and feeding it, with the message: “Don’t forget to take care of animals, they too deserve our love and care.”

However, what caught the eye was the second image posted in the same tweet by Afridi which showed his daughter celebrating with arms aloft next to a lion inside a residence.

Other images and videos surfaced showing Afridi standing next to the lion inside a household.
