I am sure it will be a well-contested final: Kohli

I am sure it will be a well-contested final: Kohli”

"But things can change, and this is the time for us to change the tag that we don't perform well at ICC events". They are, in this match, up against a side who have lost just one wicket in the first Powerplay all tournament and who have posted four century stands between them. I am not even going to try and predict the victor.

"It is just another game of cricket tomorrow". "Somebody who played for the country and captained should be appreciating the way they [Pakistan team] come to the final".

Amir missed the semi-final win over England with back trouble and was replaced by Raees.

It is something that has not gone unnoticed in the India camp. Sunday will reveal this year's victor. "I am happy he is doing so well in life and cricket". Recently, the BCCI opposed the tournament and was outvoted 9-1in the ICC. "This is a part of being an Indian cricketer". New captain, new coach and a few changes in the squad; flawless recipe to retain the Champions Trophy.

India got off to a winning start against Pakistan with Ravindra Jadeja producing more fielding brilliance, picking up the ball and throwing in one movement to run out Mohammad Hafeez in their victory. "Everything was new for everyone - a new team, new players and even a new captain (MS Dhoni)", Pathan told Mirror on Friday. I also remember the early run-out from Robin Uthappa, RP (Singh) getting the wickets, me getting three wickets and the last over bowled by Joginder Sharma and the catch that S Sreesanth took. Someone has helped you to win these matches.

"Yeah, Rohit has come back and really had a full IPL season, which has been hectic as Mumbai Indians reached the final". I think we can see our style and method catching up with the rest of the world because we're being exposed to it now.

"It is massive", said Azhar. "I was a newcomer", he said.

Kohli already has 27 ODI centuries to his name, with a career strike-rate in excess of 91, and such has been the passionate drive with which he has led India that his fortunes and those of the team as a whole now seem indivisible.

Apart from this being a face-off between the tournament's best batting side and the best bowling attack, it also pits the two best bowling attacks in the middle overs against each other. We've closed the chapter on that.

"It was a attractive a game of cricket, regardless of the result".

It is all set to become the most-watched game in the history of cricket.

India are favourites to retain the Champions Trophy on Sunday but they would probably have preferred to face different opponents than arch-rivals Pakistan in what is sure to be a highly-charged final. I think its biggest battle is going to be psychological.

Here we see Ronchi smashing Aussie Quick Pat Cummins over extra cover for a big six.

Their captain Sarfraz Ahmed said they had quickly forgotten the opening loss to India and simply focused on the next game in their bid to win the Champions Trophy for the first time.
