Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood said that his team has nothing to lose in the Champions Trophy final match against India and it would be the Men in Blue, who would be under pressure at The Oval on Sunday. He has given this statement because India has a brilliant record of winning in ICC events against Pakistan, that is, 12-2.

 

Strengths of both the teams

 

 Kumar Sangakkara, former Sri Lankan captain, feels that while India’s strength lies in its batting, especially the top order, on the other hand, Pakistan would show their superb bowling attack in the ICC Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday.

Both teams have played really good cricket, adapted really well to conditions, and have shown good sportsman spirit along the way.

 

Don’t underestimate Pakistan

 

 

Both Pakistan and India have registered their names into the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final with brilliant performances in their semi-finals against the host, England, and Bangladesh, respectively.

Pakistan has stunned everyone after being ranked eighth, faced difficulty for qualifying for Champions trophy to coming into the ICC tournament, and was well beaten in its first match against India. Since that match, every game has been a knock-out game for it. Pakistan displayed its skills and played freely as they have nothing to lose.

So, after almost a month of international cricket, some rain interrupted the matches but plenty of great cricket and several surprises, we are all braced for a huge final – India versus Pakistan.
