India Vs Pakistan Champions Trophy 2017 Final
Question in detail
India Vs Pakistan CT 2017 final: Bullish India gets geared to relive the feel, thrill and of course the victory faded beneath dust in the history pages. It was 2007 when the two Asian cricket giants locked horns in an ICC's title clash T20 World Cup. India was favorites then and now as well.
Pakistan would be cautious of India's terrible top-order, which has been decimating throughout the tournament across conditions and against teams. Not surprisingly, the top two spots on the batsmen's chart are robustly occupied by both the Indian openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma respectively. Virat Kohli has also been ruthless with a scarcely credible mark of 253 in CT 2017. He comfortably sits 5th at the back of his brutal batting display that features three unbeaten half-centuries.
When talking about Pakistan, they have done wonders with the ball, apparently because two of their bowlers Hasan Ali and Juaid Khan secure a spot each in the top 5 as the most wicket takers. So, the least we can expect to watch in the Champions Trophy 2017 final is a tough rivalry between the two sides, or say it would be India's batting Vs Pakistan's bowling.
Team India looks confident to claim their second CT title in a row. Pakistan, on the other hand, would be eyeing to make the most of their maiden appearance in Champions Trophy final. Pakistan's last four success have been impressive they made their way to the final beating top-ranked Africa, Lanka in the virtual quarter-final and previously unbeaten hosts England in the semifinal.
The way India has batted in the tournament must have dented Pakistan mentally, to some extent if not wholly. India is now keen to finish the things off the way they started it with a thrashing win over the same rival that will contest them in the last battle (Champions Trophy 2017 final). Apart from just batting and bowling, India Vs Pakistan CT 2017 final has lot more to put on display the war of words (sledging) that remains center stage in head-to-head clashes, stigma of defeat, and yes the reward of win.
Will Team India crush Pakistan to defend the ICC Champions Trophy title?
