'Virat Kohli Smashes Pakistan', Fans Sing Ahead Of Final Clash

Rita Gibson | 19 June, 2017, 13:30

India and Pakistan are all set to take on each in Champions Trophy final for the second time in cricket's history.

"India is in a great place and must be favoured to retain the ICC Champions Trophy but no-one should discount Pakistan". But little did they know that they would get another chance to rejoice.

The rivals have faced off in an ICCC ODI tournament final.

Pakistan, on the other hand, have pulled off a brilliant comeback after the humiliation against India. "If we talk about bowling and batting, the competition has always been between Pakistan's bowling and India's batting", he added.

Pakistan have been badly bruised against India this series in their opening group stage match, having lost the game by 124 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method. I think it will be a very interesting game.

"What we've produced after that doesn't come as any surprise, because that's how we trained, and that's what we worked at", Arthur told reporters at The Oval on Saturday.

Yanez, who is Latino, testified that Castile disregarded his commands not to pull out the gun and that he feared for his life. He would not identify the two early holdouts, but said they were not the jurys only two black members.

He trapped Rohit Sharma lbw for nought with a swinging delivery and removed India talisman Virat Kohli with another fine ball which the captain could only edge to point for five. "Pakistan is good with bowling", said a fan from Bhopal.

India opener Shikhar Dhawan is the tournament's leading run scorer with 317 runs in four matches and will look to continue his momentum against Pakistan.

ยท This will be the fifth time these sides would have faced off in the Champions Trophy; the record is now balanced with two victories each.

India will look to win its third Champions Trophy title when it plays Pakistan in Sunday's final at the Oval.

After India had won the toss, Fakhar, on three, was caught by wicketkeeper Mahehdra Singh Dhoni off a Jasprit Bumrah no-ball and the 27-year-old left-hander took full advantage to make his first global century. As per, a report in ESPNCricinfo, citing data by ICC, as of now, the most-watched record is held by India vs Sri Lanka 2011 World Cup final as it got viewership of 558 million.

As cricket enthusiasts all over world are anxiously waiting for the battle, an air of unusual excitement can be felt among young cricketers across the country as they wish the Indian players all the luck for today's match.
