Chasing a challenging total of 339 runs, India bowed down before the Pakistani bowlers and got all out for mere 158 runs in 33.3 overs.
"Congratulations to Pakistan. The way they turned things around, it was awesome", Kohli said.
The ICC Champions Trophy final between India and Pakistan did carry with it all the cheers and whistles that came it usually warranted but there was always the underlying emotion that it may be another one-sided match for India in this year's tournament. Seems like we are playing in Pakistan and thanks to all those who supported.
Pakistan then prove it's possible to bat on a used pitch, with Fakhar making his second fifty in as many matches, as they cruise to victory with 77 balls to spare.
Only Hardik Panya put together a significant innings for India with 76 off of 43 balls, but after the top three combined for only 26 - including Sharma's first-over duck - India would need far more to make the game competitive.
"We have no hesitation or shame to admit we didn't play our best game. We have to identify the players we want to take forward", he added.
Even India captain Virat Kohli was impressed. "Amir bowled brilliantly but all my bowlers bowled really well".
In only his fourth one-day global at the age of 27, after his debut just 11 days ago, Fakhar overcame his nervy start to unfurl a series of increasingly assured strokes among his 12 fours and two sixes in a 92-ball century.

Fakhar hit 12 fours and three sixes before skying a catch off Hardik Pandya but Pakistan had the ideal platform to make the highest total in a Champions Trophy final.
The left-hander eventually perished for 114 off 106 balls with the score at 200/2 with 17 overs to go but left the field to a standing ovation at The Oval.
Mohammad Hafeez and Babar Azam also chipped in with handy contributions towards the end of the innings and helped their team go past 300 marks.
