    On This Day: Sep 26, 2009 - Pakistan beat India in the ICC Champions Trophy


    Four years ago on this date, India and Pakistan met at Centurion in the 2009 ICC Champions Trophy.

    A India-Pakistan encounter is always enticing and much anticipated. When they face off in a global tournament, however, the blood pressure and nerves amongst fans raises even more. That was the case leading up to this matchup.

    While India maintained their perfect record over Pakistan in World Cups, Pakistan had, albeit a small sample size, a perfect record vs India in Champions Trophies. With Pakistan having won the World Twenty20 just a few months prior, their fans were cautiously optimistic.

    Things started off well for the 'Men in Green' as skipper Younis Khan won the toss and then elected to bat. After Imran Nazir and Kamran Akmal got the team off to a quick start, some wickets fell which landed Pakistan in a tricky situation, 65-3 after 14.4 overs.

    That's when the two veterans out in the middle, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Yousuf proceeded to put together a brilliant partnership to save the team from further trouble. Both their innings were straight out of a coaching manual. Consolidation at first, slowly releasing the pressure with singles and doubles, and then capitalizing with boundaries. What resulted was a record 4th wicket partnership for Pakistan - 206 runs, coming off 188 balls. Malik would be dismissed for 128 while Yousuf fell short of a well-deserved century on 87. Pakistan finished on 302/9 from their 50 overs. 163 runs were scored in their final 19 overs.

    Chasing 303 was never going to be easy, but if you'll back any batting lineup to do it, it's India's. Those at the ground and watching from home eagerly awaited one particular duel, teenage sensation Mohammad Amir vs the legend himself, Sachin Tendulkar.

    After two tight overs, Amir struck and had Tendulkar caught behind off the first ball of his third over. Amir screamed and blew a kiss to the sky, Pakistan fans were celebrating as if they just won the match, and Indian fans were distraught.

    From there, the Indian batsmen continued to build partnerships but Saeed Ajmal and Shahid Afridi bowled with discipline, forcing the RRR to climb.

    Rahul Dravid top scored with 76 in a losing effort as India were bowled out for 248 in 44.5 overs.

    Pakistan won by 54 runs, maintained their perfect record vs India in the Champions Trophy, and were one step closer to the semi-finals.

    Nice write-up but no mention of young Amir (only 17) getting Tendulkar out.

    Hope we play India sometime soon, love watching the two teams go at it.

    Yes, that was a good delivery, angling away from Tendulkar and taking the outside edge. I think that wicket kind of turned the match Pakistan's way right from the start.

    A good innings by Shoaib Malik earlier..

    One day the jinx of Pakistan never beating India in WC will also be broken similarly.
    it WILL eventually be broken.

    but pakistan needs to go pass the psychological barrier. against india in a wc match, pak players create extra pressure upon themselves which lets the downfall.

    not to mention, catching must be world class.

    indian batsmen are ruthless. if you give them one chance, they will make you regret.

    I've never seen a better batting performance during the middle overs (20-40) from any team ever.

    Malik and Yousuf were simply majestic and Harbhajan was taken to the cleaners. How many cut shots did they play that day?

    No.

    India lost by a hefty margin and Raina was not gonna score those runs by himself. He had no support.

    India lost the game when Younis brilliantly ran out Gambhir who was set for a smashing hundred.

    Dravid was not a threat at any point of the chase in spite of scoring 70 odd runs and a reasonable strike rate.

    Dravid was NEVER a threat to opposition in an ODI.

    "decent" is NOT enough in indian ODI standard. you are not allowed to be one dimensional.

    you HAVE to be both accumulator and aggressor when time needs.

    But 21 runs in 18 balls are not that bad for a part timer? Look at other numbers

    No way in the world it was a marginal decision. It was a Clear inside edge.
    Raina got out when India were 200 plus with 5 wickets in hand I think.
    If you see in the post match presentation even dhoni said that he thought India would win since Raina was talking Pakistani bowlers apart.

    You can only make a claim against it for the quality of bowling. That wasn't great but you have to look at the match situation.

    65/3 in 15 overs, most batsmen get bogged down in such situations. Not score at 7 per over for the next 25 odd overs with zero risk and no wickets lost.

    It really was an incredible performance.

    So Raina would have scored the next 54 runs himself?

    How many times has he won games like that on his own?

    He had no support from the other end, look at the scores of the lower order and tail.

    At best, he'd probably have been left stranded on 80 odd with India losing by 25 runs etc or would have more likely been dismissed soon after because he had to do all by himself.

    No way he was winning that game single handedly

    Also captain cool didn't help when he walked across the stumps to Afridi for 3.

    That along with Gambhir's run out won the game for us.

    Don't blame the umpire.

    Thank to Afridi otherwise Akmal dropped him at 3 when Ajmal was bowling before that over.

    Saeed Ajmal to Dhoni, no run, Dropped by Akmal. Tough chance. T'was a topspinner outside off stump, Dhoni tries to cover drive, edges and it deflects to Akmal's right pad

    It just highlights how important it is to get going from the very first ball in ODIs.

    If Misbah would have been there, he'd have scored a fifty too like Yousuf but at a much lower strike rate.

    In spite of our lower order collapsing we got 300 because Malik and Yousuf put us on course to 320.

    Misbah would have got us to 270 at best and India would have chased that without a problem.

    Rest of your post looks ok.. except the highlighted part .. He is a capable player to win ODI matches on his own.. there are quite a few examples.. but let's leave them for now.

    Dhoni is such a dangerous player, good that he wasn't in the mood to make Pakistan pay for that let-off.. usually he calms down and just takes the game away quietly and explodes in the end.

    I rate him very much in ODIs. Quality player and a match winner but how many times has he won matches chasing big totals with the tail on his own?

    It was just awesome after 65/3 in 15 overs they scored 74 runs in next 16 overs with a RR of less thn 4.5 means 139/3 in 31 overs and thn 163 runs in next 19 overs with a RR of 8.5+

    I think he took the score from 200-6 to 260 in WC SF .. it was not in chasing, but not much different pressure wise. Chasing you only need to handle extra pressure of coming close and holding your nerve.. else capability wise batting 1st or 2nd has same skill requirements.

    In Eng series/SL he did damage alone many matches.

    He had no support from the other end, look at the scores of the lower order and tail.

    At best, he'd probably have been left stranded on 80 odd with India losing by 25 runs etc or would have more likely been dismissed soon after because he had to do all by himself.

    No way he was winning that game single handedly

    Also captain cool didn't help when he walked across the stumps to Afridi for 3.

    That along with Gambhir's run out won the game for us.

    Don't blame the umpire.
    Raina would not have scored all the 50 runs. But who knew that harbhajan would smash amir and shoaib akthar to win a match in Asia cup?
    We had 5 wickets in hand. Had Raina stayed, we would have definitely won the match. Well at least that's what captain cool said after the post match presentation..

    In 2007-08 VB series matches against Lanka, he showed it.. against WI in 2009 he showed it too..

    He has certainly become better but was capable of doing it then too.

    The 2013 CT won was such a disappointment.

    Easily the most forgettable Pakistan India match of the decade and not at all because we lost it.

    History changed in 2013, On same ground of Edgbaston Pakistan won against India in 2004 Champions Trophy and thn lost on same ground in 2013 Champions Trophy.

    Rana and Akhtar got 4 wickets in that match Sami was expensive like everyday but he got Dada at Duck. Only Razzaq and Malik bowled full quota.

    Dravid-Shoaib have had a lot more such fights/arguments .. probably Akhtar didn't like that Dravid could hit him.. he didn't have much problem/fight with Sehwag/Tendulkar..

    Even Allan Donald got angry because Dravid had hit him, whereas he was calm when Tendulkar hit him in the same match..

    Not sure why people rate Dravid so low..

    Wow. Four years have passed. Remember anxiously waiting for the game. It was the first Pak vs India game I was going to watch after moving to the States and was very excited. We partied the whole night and by time the game started early in the morning, it was just me and one other guy who were still up for the game. Eventually everyone woke up and we watched the game together. There was also one Indian guy among us and everyone gave him hell after India lost.

    As already pointed out, the fielding was brilliant.. BUT Misbah getting bowled was something i would wanna watch again. Not too often you see him getting out in the first place itself.

    Rain did played a spoil sport. Dhawan's crisp shots really perked things up to a certain extent.

    But it's still 2-1 in Pak's favour.. plus you can call 2013 CT a dead-rubber.. well for India it was not, coz it impacted their ranking in the group..which could be handy if the final/SF had rained out... but Pakistan was already out.

    It was a typical Dhawan innings, what was so special? You can watch any one of his clt20 games and you wouldn't have missed a thing.

    Why can't you just admit the game blew?

    It wasn't a Dhawan special (i.e. hundred) if he had kicked on he could have made that game special and memorable.

    On This Day September 26, 2009: Pakistan beat India in the ICC Champions Trophy

    I will remember it as a week where the troubles in life took a start. A day where I coughed non-stop the whole day/match.

    *Sorry for the attention seeking!*

    An excellent partnership it was between Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Yousuf following the early loss of three wickets. Gautam Gambhir looked extremely dangerous before the ever so alert and smart Younis Khan ran him out. I have never seen the guy bat like he did that day.

    Highlights are things you don't forget e.g. Amir knicking off Tendulkar even 4 years on people still remember that.

    lol at your assumptions.

    And how do you assume that people would forget Kohli's run out in this this year's CT? I mean how do you decide thse things? Is there some software in built in your mind which decides all these things for us mere mortals?

    Hm.. a 17 year old with a promising future dismissing one of the greatest batsmen of all time... or a good run out?

    You tell me.

    As for Aamir, only highlight of his career which everyone won't ever forget is that unbelievably big overstepping he did on that fateful day. Now this is something which I'm dead certain about.
