Champions Trophy final: Mercurial Pakistan shouldn't be discounted, says Mike Hussey

"And since this is the first time India and Pakistan will be meeting in the final of a cricket tournament in around 10 years, the bets are high".

"They're genuinely excited", he said at The Oval before their last practice.

The India vs Pakistan Champions Trophy final will be streamed online on Hotstar. India have picked up seven wickets at an economy rate of 4.40, while Pakistan have been deadlier with eight wickets, conceding just 3.60 runs per over.

Sarfraz said that his team would be as aggressive as they were throughout the tournament and were ready to pull off a final surprise.

What's the key behind batting in pressure games like these both as a batsman and a captain, "I feel after you reach a stage in a tournament like this you can't basically work on your techniques anymore with the ball or the bat?" A rain-affected win against South Africa got them off the mark in the competition and then a thrilling win over Sri Lanka in the final, meant a semifinal against England was setup.

"The other thing I said was that the facilitators of the win can not be named; however I said nothing about match-fixing or any other foul play ¿ my statement was misunderstood", Sohail said. "Don't wish to get into the details on who won them the games", Sohail said during a programme on a Pakistani channel.

Meanwhile Kohli said it was important for players to ration their use of sites such as Twitter. This is not the first time I'm hearing all these. The same with Sri Lanka. "We're moving forward. And the guys have played exactly as I thought they would play". "They've come in committed to the way we want to play our cricket".

India have batted to a plan so far, and not much is likely to change in the final.

When it comes to assessing most teams, the temptation is to look at their most recent result as a form guide.

"Having captained Pakistan in the 2011 World Cup semi- final at Mohali, I know the importance of the game and how it brings the two nations to a standstill while underlining the message of peace and tolerance for each other".

"We've got nothing to lose - the pressure is more on them", Azhar told reporters at the Oval on Friday.

Pakistan, without their leading fast bowler Mohammad Amir due to injury, strangled the usually free-scoring England batsmen on a slow wicket in Cardiff with a disciplined display of bowling and fielding.

"Let's hope we can put out our A game again tomorrow", he said, "because if we can, and I said it before the England game, if we put our A game together and do the basics well, we can beat anybody".

After restricting Bangladesh to 264, the defending champions chased down the target riding on the brilliant innings of Rohit Sharma (123 not out off 129 balls) and skipper Kohli (96 not out off 78 balls) with 59 balls to spare at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
