India lost match because of Bumra? No because of this black magic

New Delhi: Not even India's worst critic will agree that India is not such bad performer as was witnessed at Oval in the ICC Champions Trophy final. Why did India perform so badly?


This was an interesting cricketing trivia involving Sarfraz Ahmed and Imad Wasim that kept the Pakistani fans interested in the ICC Champions Trophy final against India here on Sunday.

Despite Pakistan's dismal record against India across ICC tournaments where the record is a whopping 13-2 in favour of 'Men In Blue', the current Pakistan skipper had a reason to smile.

Sarfraz and left-arm spinner Imad Wasim are the only members of this Pakistani side who have won an ICC tournament final against India.

It's the 2006 ICC U-19 World Cup in which Pakistan colts defeated their arch rivals by 38 runs in a low-scoring final at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

Pakistan were all out for 109 but then bowled out India for 71 on an under-prepared pitch.

Sarfraz was the captain of the Pakistan team while India were led by Cheteshwar Pujara.
