Pakistan Champions Trophy Final should be a cracker

When asked about the additional pressure of facing Pakistan in the final, Kohli said: "It's been quite a few years I've been dealing with that, so nothing new". Imran tweeted the team a good luck message to his 5.5m followers. We focus on the things within our control, so as I said we don't go after past records and statistics. But as we've seen on multiple occasions in the tournament so far, you simply can not rule out Pakistan before the start of a game.

"We are totally confident that India will win". The more positive cricket we play, the better results we will get.

I really hope that we see resumption of bilateral cricket between the two countries. They seem to have planned their attack better in the last three matches, yet they must be wondering how to distribute the crucial 20 overs between the two spinners, attacking leg-spinner Shadab Khan and left-arm Imad Wasim. "Dhoni and some other cricketers have sent their best wishes to the hockey team and we have done the same", said Manpreet. On their day they can beat any side so you cannot take any team lightly, especially Pakistan, you have to give them equal respect.

"You know, the ability to think otherwise in a hard situation is something that sets you apart and actually pulls the team through".

"I would also want the cricketing world and the ICC to keep a close eye on the significance of an Indo-Pak cricket match of this magnitude and what it means to the fans of the game all around", he wrote.

"We have changed nothing from the first match that we played in this tournament".

The Men in Blue have won all three of their previous matches against Pakistan in the knockout stages of International Cricket Council (ICC) tournaments to date but Azhar feels there was no reason that the sequence could be extended this weekend as well.

Kershaw wins, Bellinger hits 2 homers as Dodgers top Indians
With Zach McAllister on the mound, Chris Taylor later blooped a single into center field to score two more runs and make it 6-2. Miller retired the side in order in the seventh, but gave up just his third run of the season when Bellinger homered.

It was here that India lost their only match of the tournament so far, when Sri Lanka shocked them last week by easily chasing 321 for six - with seven wickets and more than an over to spare.

Pakistan have surprised many to reach the final of CT17, a tournament it very almost failed to qualify for.

"The unpredictability and never-say-die spirit of Pakistan cricket is here for all of us to celebrate again as we all await with bated breaths for what promises to be an epic clash at The Oval in London", he said.

According to Tait, who clinched 62 wickets in 35 ODIs during his career, India skipper Virat Kohli "might be tempted to play Umesh Yadav, but he would (probably) stick to the same combination because it was a winning team".

The Pakistan side made a comeback in the tournament all thanks to their bowling department, leading the line is the dynamic Hassan Ali, picking up wickets with his reverse swings.

Jason Roy struggled with bat in hand throughout the tournament but produced a moment of fielding brilliance to remove Glen Maxwell as England sent Australia tumbling out of the Champions Trophy.
