Defending Champion India will take on arch-rival Pakistan in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy tournament at the Oval in London. The match will begin at 3 PM Indian Time tomorrow.

Earlier, India walloped Bangladesh by 9 wickets on Thursday to meet Pakistan in the final. India had got the better of the rivals in the league stage of the ongoing tournament.

Champions Trophy is also known as the ‘Mini World Cup’ and features top eight ranked One-Day International (ODI) teams.

Virat Kohli, like his predecessor MS Dhoni, had played down the hype around India versus Pakistan final. In fact, “impressed” with Pakistan’s turnaround after defeat against India in the opening game, Kohli praised the Sarfraz Ahmed and Co. for making it to the final.

Indian batting has been rock solid with all their top three batsmen Shikhar Dhawan (317 runs), Rohit Sharma (304 runs) and Virat Kohli (253 runs) enjoying a fine run of form, while Indian pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have done a fine job in India’s road to the final.
