The two sides' most recent encounter was their tournament opener earlier this month, where India thrashed Pakistan by 124 runs.
Pakistan thrashed arch-rivals India by 180 runs to win the worldwide cricket tournament at The Oval in London, U.K. on Sunday.
They were eventually dismissed for 158 in reply to Pakistan's 338 for four, which featured Zaman's 114, the left-handed opener's maiden one-day global hundred coming in just his fourth match at this level.
If left-handed opener Fakhar rode his luck at times, he also produced an array of superb shots, notably in a first-wicket stand of 128 with Azhar Ali.
114 Zaman's score, the fourth-highest by a Pakistan batsman in a World Cup or Champions Trophy game, and the first hundred for Pakistan in the final of these tournaments. "They proved it again, they can upset anyone on their day, disappointing for us but I have a smile on my face because we played well to reach the final", Kohli said.Читайте также: Macron's En Marche captures landslide victory in France

It appeared India, chasing 339 to win, had had a lucky break when Kohli, the world's leading one-day worldwide batsman, was dropped on five by first slip Azhar Ali off Amir.
After being reduced to 33-3 and then 72-6, India were never really in the contest despite a fighting 43-ball 76 from Hardik Pandya. Pakistan bowled first in its previous four Trophy matches, and only once in Trophy history has a team batting first won the final; India in 2013.
Shadab took his second wicket sending Kedar Jadhav back to the pavilion in the 16th over.
Pakistan had to earn their win and they made us make mistakes.
