Pakistan, on the other hand, have turned around their campaign after the disastrous start.
Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur said he hoped a proposed World XI visit to the country later this year went ahead after his side served notice of their enduring talent with a stunning Champions Trophy final win over India.
Amidst the heated exchanges on social media as Indian cricket team and Pakistan cricket team gear up for the ICC Champions Trophy final, the picture of MS Dhoni holding Sarfraz Ahmed's son brought fans from both sides together to enjoy the spirit of the game, reported The Hindustan Times.
India's top three batsman - Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, and captain Virat Kohli - came to the final having combined for 874 runs, more than 80 percent of the team's tally in the tournament.
Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya who resisted the Green Shirts in a high-octane clash of Champions Trophy made a controversial tweet hours raising eyebrows of commentators whether he accused his fellows of match-fixing.
Meanwhile, Dhawan won the Golden Bat trophy after finishing as the leading run-getter.
Earlier, Pakistan made 338 for four after losing the toss with opener Fakhar Zaman's 114 his maiden one-day worldwide hundred in just his fourth match at this level.
Hafeez smashed 3 sixes and 4 boundaries and helped Pakistan set a monstrous target of 339 runs for the Men in Blue to defend the title. India have been unbeaten against Pakistan in all but two ICC fixtures before this and it was only the second time that the two teams were playing in the final of an ICC tournament.
India ran out 7-1 winners over their old rivals in a World Hockey League fixture at Lee Valley in east London just as Virat Kohli's cricketers were enduring defeat at the Oval in the south of the city, 10 miles (15.7km) away.
At the end of the tournament, Pakistan proved they had better control over all these attributes vis-a-vis India.
Bumrah's first three overs cost 24 runs, including four wides.
But at 200 for two, Pakistan were well-placed for a big score, with Hafeez bringing up the 300 when he pulled the generally admirable Kumar for six. Pakistan are strolling to victory sooner than you can say victory and the star of this tournament, Pakistan's latest "PACE IS PACE YAAR" darling runs in and fittingly takes the last wicket. Pakistan pile on 338 runs but this is Kohli's India, they murder such run chases for a living and he himself is the greatest chaser in ODI cricket's history.
