India clinched the ICC Champions Trophy, in its last edition, with a nerve-wracking five-run victory over hosts England in a rain-hit final at Edgbaston, giving their captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the unique record of being the first captain to win three world titles. 

- Congratulate India!

After frustrating showers reduced the contest to a T20 affair, India first scored 129 for seven and then restricted England to 124 for eight in a topsy-turvy game that went down to the wire.
