Pakistan to get gold crown on beating India in CT final

Though Pakistan will take on India as an improved side, the history is India's favour as Pakistan has won only twice against India in Champions Trophy and not a single time in World T20 and World Cup.

Like many people, Pathan also believes the Virat Kohli-led India's strength lies in its batting while Pakistan would bank on its superb bowling attack in the summit clash.

Or will it be the slick, skilled side who hammered England by eight wickets in the semi-finals, with Hasan Ali, the competition's leading wicket-taker, spearheading a brilliant bowling effort as the previously unbeaten tournament hosts were dismissed for just 211 before the likes of Azhar Ali and Fakhar Zaman helped knock off the runs in dashing style?

"History can change, and I hope we can (change it)". India may be ahead against Pakistan in ICC tournaments by an 8-2 margin, but in all ODI tournament finals Pakistan holds a 6-2 edge in the head-to-head battle against India.With Pakistan's front-line pacer Mohammad Amir declared fit to play in the final after sitting out the previous match, he alongside new ball bowler Junaid Khan will be the key against India to provide their side with early breakthroughs. The India vs Pakistan ODI will be streamed online on Hotstar. "It is bigger than the Ashes - and expectation is high from both nations, insane about cricket".

India got their man finally thanks to a fine catch by Jadeja running back from point after a skewed big hit at Pandya.

But Pakistan could also find a place for Amir by leaving out a spinner in either Shadab Khan or Imad Wasim.

If India manage to clinch the victory at the Oval today, they will become the first team to win the Trophy three times and join Australia as the second team to defend the title.

"The final overs usually involve a lot of pressure and especially if you are playing against India". "It is a mercurial team and this tournament has thrown up so many upsets so far", Hussey wrote in a column for the official website of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The bowling department for India under the likes of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin have looked solid bowling economically while providing clinical breakthroughs.

This will be the fifth time India and Pakistan will have a face off in the Champions Trophy; the record is now balanced with two victories each.

"That's the kind of players they have, we're quite aware of that".
