India vs England Final - ICC Champions Trophy 2013

The Final

India win by 5 runs in 20-over a side thriller

India added the 2013 Champions Trophy to the 2002 trophy they shared with Sri Lanka, beating England narrowly by 5 runs in a game that was there for the hosts to win. With this win, MS Dhoni became the first captain in the world to have won all ICC trophies. Under Dhoni's captaincy, India had earlier won the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 held in South Africa in September 2007 and the 2011 World Cup held in India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. Chasing a modest 130 for a win, Ravi Bopara (30) and Eoin Morgan (33) had things under control and was going for the kill when Ishant Sharma turned it around with two wickets in two balls, after a six and two wide balls in the 18th over. That started a collapse that saw four wickets lost for three runs in eight balls. England finished on 124/8 after James Tredwell missed the last ball of the innings with six required for victory.Earlier Kohli top-scored for India with 43, rescuing the team's innings when it was in danger of unraveling on 66/5 after 13 overs. Dhawan, who went into the final as the tournament's leading scorer with 332 runs in four matches, hit 31 of 24 balls that included a six over third-man against Broad. Man-of-match Ravindra Jadeja remained unbeaten on a 25-ball 33, before returning to take 2-24. He was also given the 'golden ball' for picking the most number of wickets, 12, in the tournament. Explosive left-handed batsman Shikhar Dhawan won the 'golden bat' for scoring the most runs - 363 from five matches at an average of 90.75. He hit two centuries and a half-century with a highest of 114. finals Reported earlier: England won the toss and elected to field first under wet and cloudy conditions in Edgbaston, Birmingham. India plays with an unchanged side. The final, worth $2 million to the winners and $1 million to the runners-up, will be contested by teams who’ve justified their status as the top-ranked one-day sides in the world.

India to meet England in the final

In the final of the last edition of the Champions Trophy at Birmingham on Sunday, world's top-ranked one-day side India will meet hosts England, a team that has never won a world 50-over event. Even as rain threatens the grand finale, India start favourites - with an 8/11 odds on to win this weekend's final according to the bookmakers. The Men in Blue have won eight of the last ten one-day internationals played against England spanning two one-day series, both in India, 5-0 and 3-2.Merely three survivors - Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina and captain MS Dhoni - remain from the XI who were victors over Sri Lanka in the World Cup final in 2011, but the inexperienced but fearless and aggressive team as a unit is proving to be unstoppable. The Indians have won six matches from six - including two warm-up games - with their young bowlers relishing unfamiliar English conditions and opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan becoming the star of the tournament. India (probable XI): Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (capt & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav.

No Champions Trophy after 2013

The last edition of the tournament!

The ICC Champions Trophy will feature the top eight-ranked sides in the world in the only ‘best versus the best’ 50-over-a-side tournament. First held in 1998, the Champions Trophy was held every two years, except for the 2008 edition, which was postponed until the following year. Australia will aim to complete a hat-trick of titles, after it won the past two events in India and South Africa in 2006 and 2009, respectively. India will take on South Africa in the opening game of the 2013 Champions Trophy in England, the last time the tournament will be held. Meanwhile, the World Test Championship, originally scheduled for 2013, will make its debut in 2017 and continue every four years. The World Twenty20 will operate every two years, while the World Cup will continue on a four-year cycle with the number of teams reduced to 10 from 2019 onwards. India's matches & Schedule

ICC One Day International "Mini World Cup"

The ICC Champions Trophy is a One Day International cricket tournament, second in importance only to the Cricket World Cup. It was inaugurated as the ICC Knock Out tournament in 1998 and has been played every two years since, changing its name to the Champions Trophy in 2002. Originally, all ten full members of the International Cricket Council (ICC) took part, together with (for the first four competitions) two associate members. From 2009, this will be changed to the 8 highest-ranked ODI teams as placed 6 months out from the tournament.
