Despite initial concerns, Virat Kohli and co comprehensively beat Bangladesh to reach the Champions Trophy 2017 finals. Having already beat Pakistan in the group stages, the defending champions will surely have their tails up going into this match. That said, India’s bowling unit continues to remain the weak-link in an otherwise strong team. If the theme of this tournament persists, the batting lineup is again likely to come to rescue and help the men in blue retain their trophy.
Pakistan has had a roller-coaster of a ride in this tournament, and the team has surprised everyone by being in the finals. The team’s bowling unit continues to go from strength to strength, led by the highly talented Mohammad Amir. It is little wonder then the team has taken the most wickets in this tournament so far.
