Any India – Pakistan match is a prodigious occasion, but this time the game will have an extra edge. It will be the first tournament (ICC Champions Trophy 2017) final between India and Pakistan since 2008, and the first time they meet in final of an ICC organised 50-overs event (World Cup or Champions Trophy). Before this the two have met only once in an ICC event final – the 2007 World T20 – and in that match India got a victory of 5 runs.

“I am very impressed with Pakistan. What a superb tournament has been for them. They have shown their belief as a team and it will be challenging for us. In the last two games they have been terrific. They have created wicket-taking opportunities even in conditions that are tough for the bowlers”- Virat Kohli
