Pakistan started their campaign with a huge loss against India and at that stage, not many would have seen them reaching the final of the tournament. But it is fair to say that in his round-robin knocks against Pakistan and South Africa, he has been under par by his own high standards. You can't afford to dwell on any bad moments of enjoy the good ones for too long. "I want to see revival of bilateral cricket", the former captain said.

India opted for the same team that beat South Africa and Bangladesh in the last two matches. Although the team is projected to falter in the middle overs, the stylish right-handed batsman will ensure India manage to come out unscathed from the jitters.

The Sarfraz Ahmed-led side has depended on their bowlers to deliver the goods and despite the absence of prime bowlers Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir in the latter half, have not suffered.

It seems that India is more strong in both batting and Bowling when compared to Pakistan and hence the chance of winning is more for India as predicted. India won by 124 runs, their seventh win out of 10 one-day internationals since 2010. And to the next ball, on a similar line, he repeated the shot - only, better.
