Bollywood stars congratulated Pakistan after it defeated India by 180 runs in the final ICC Champions Trophy cricket match today.

It was exactly two weeks back that Virat Kohli's Team India thrashed Pakistan in the tournament opener at the Edgbaston in Birmingham.

But Pakistan made one change, with the fit-again Mohammad Amir returning from the back spasm that saw him mis Wednesday's impressive eight-wicket semi-final win over previously unbeaten tournament hosts England in Cardiff.

India's lineup remained unchanged for the match, whereas Pakistan replaced Rumman Raees with Muhammad Amir.

Since that 162/7 against Sri Lanka, Pakistan have scored 627 runs while losing just 6 wickets - 2 against England in semifinals and 4 against India in the final and scalped 20 wickets conceding just 369 runs; 51 runs more than what they allowed India to score against them in their first game. If Zaman announced his arrival in worldwide cricket with a match-defining knock, Pakistan cricket s enfant awful Amir finally managed to sing a redemption song that he has been longing for.

Marais Erasmus quickly said, "wait, wait, don't celebrate yet, because I want to check on the no-ball", and you could see why, with replays showing Bumrah comfortably overstepping his mark.

Despite the enormity of the occasion, and the fanfare around it, the two teams tried to play it down, Kohli in particular.

The excitement among the fans and advertisers for the mouthwatering clash is at an all-time high, fans from both the nations hoping their team prevails and make their nation proud while it's a jackpot for advertisers who are cashing in as much as they can during the finals.

India needed a strong start but Amir had other plans, as he trapped Rohit Sharma (0) lbw in the first over and in the second over of his got the big scalp of Virat Kohli (5). Ranveer Singh shared, "Congrats Pak-played a helluva finalSome brilliant teams hav lost finals recently.Juve, Cavs & now Team India-funky sorta season".

India too have a well-balanced attack, with the new-ball duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah supported by contrasting spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin and left-armer Ravindra Jadeja. They fell well short, and were bowled out for just 164.

"India v Pakistan Final...!"

Dhawan was out to an Amir cross seamer, and India was 33-3.Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni could still rescue India, but Singh was hit pad first by spinner Shadab, confirmed by video review.

Tournament result: Pakistan win 2017 Champions Trophy.
