Amir's Mind Games Begin Ahead Of The CT 2017 Final

Amir's Mind Games Begin Ahead Of The CT 2017 Final”

It was a classic case of the master giving a lesson to an upstart apprentice as India thrashed Bangladesh by 9-wickets to book a place in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy for the fourth time. Pakistan's head-to-head record against India in ODIs is 72-52, he pointed out at the Oval on Friday.

Former Australia left-hander Michael Hussey feels that although India are hot favourites to retain the ICC Champions Trophy, Pakistan can not be discounted as they have a feeling of "destiny" with them.

India cruised to victory, finishing on 265 for one with almost 10 overs to spare. We have worked very hard and I am sure every player will give 120 percent.

Before 1947, the regions now known as India and Pakistan were both part of British India. So we want him to be careful because after a massive surgery you do need to be careful.

With the semi-finals scheduled for Edgbaston and Sophia Gardens, Arthur knew the only way his side was going to make it to the English capital was to qualify for the final.

One of the key players during Pakistan's successful campaign at the 1992 World Cup, Sohail's most infamous moment on the cricket field was at the 1996 World Cup when he got into an altercation with India pacer Venkatesh Prasad before being bowled off the very next delivery.

Javed Miandad said that both India and Pakistan have an equal chance of clinching the final of the Champions Trophy.

"Even in conditions which are not offering too much, bowling such lines that we can produce wicket-taking opportunities", said Kohli.

"I want to achieve that goal", added Hasan, whose 20 career ODIs have yielded a haul of 39 wickets at an average of 23.92-impressive figures in a form of the game where, with fielding restrictions and increasingly short boundaries, the odds are often all in favour of batsmen making big scores. It's bigger than Ashes.

"It wouldn't be a shock if we won", he said. "It will be a good gift for the nation for Eid".

The Indian side are looking ominous, not least the captain himself who on Thursday - with his 96 not out - became the fastest batsman to 8,000 one-day runs from 175 innings and passed the 182 it took South Africa's AB de Villiers. "Maybe they thought it would easier to go against a part-time bowler", he said when asked if the shots played by Mushfiqur and Tamim were wise. "If he is not fit, then we have to move on". Last match, when Amir was not there, people were anxious about our main strike bowler not playing. Some teams might not have the best starts, and they come back amazingly, which Pakistan have done. He's a wicket-taker, and the reason for our wins is that he comes in the middle period and takes wickets.

They also have a well-balanced attack, with new-ball bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah supported by contrasting spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin and left-armer Ravindra Jadeja, with the like of Kedar Jadhav, as he showed against Bangladesh, also able to chip in with useful wickets.
