"Very impressed with Pakistan". They're playing some brilliant cricket. "Their belief showed on the field", Kohli told the media here in the post-match press briefing.
India suffered a shock loss to Sri Lanka in the group stage before overwhelming Bangladesh in the semi-final and their captain Virat Kohli has been impressed by Pakistan's resurgence. But you never know.
De Villiers, who is now struggling with a poor run of form despite being at the helm of the number one ODI team, said that Kohli is able to cope with the extreme pressure that comes with being captain of the Indian cricket team.
June 17: pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood feels that his team has nothing to lose in the high-octane Champions Trophy final against India and it would be the Men in Blue, who would be under pressure at The Oval on Sunday. Nearly one billion people reportedly watched the 2011 World Cup semi-final between the pair, whilst games have been known to sell out in less than 15 minutes. We have seen some really surprising results, and it's been unbelievable for the fans to watch and for the players to be a part of, as well,"said Kohli. The guys are under no illusion as to what the expectation is on them, but they're genuinely excited", said Arthur. "We're now moving forward". One half expected India, the defending champions, to make it all the way to the final, while the other half gave eighth-ranked Pakistan not even a ghost of a chance.
SQUAD - Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravi Ashwin, Ravi Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Dinesh Karthik. "It's no surprise, you ask anyone, he or she will put India in the hot seat tomorrow", Saha said on the sidelines of a CAB first division league match on Saturday.
During the course of the innings, Kohli became the fastest batsmen to score 8,000 runs in ODIs.
Years ending with "7" proven inauspicious for Indian cricket in 50 years. It is a very good surface. The other key point emphasized - to the point of being annoying - is that the sides taking wickets in the middle overs have done well in the tournament.
"The feisty wicket-keeper batsman is still learning the art of captaincy, yet has grown in stature as a leader in every game in this tournament".
According to estimates by the AIGF, around Rs 2,000 crore will be wagered on the match, that will start on Sunday afternoon at 3 pm. There will be many distractions when India lines up against Pakistan in the final, with a manic crowd likely to be out of control in the lead up and on match day as the hype for this match will be huge.
- India have won four of their last five ODI matches against Pakistan, including a 124-run victory during the group stage.
