Champions Trophy 2017: More than billion people to watch Year's biggest cricket encounter; ‘Men in Blue’ start as favourites
The countdown for much-awaited clash between India and Pakistan has begun as both teams are all set to lock horns in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Group B game on Sunday at Edgbaston, Birmingham. The men in blue are all geared up to take on Pakistan in their tournament opener. The anticipation for a high-voltage game has reached its peak as the game is expected to be watched by almost 2 billion people across the world.
India will start favourites in the game as compared to Pakistan’s less experienced side but Virat’s men would not like to take them lightly after seeing their mammoth 342-run chase against Bangladesh in the practice match.
One of the best bowlers of current times, Mohammed Amir will be up against the who’s who of Indian batting - Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane. It will be a battle between India’s potent great order and Pakistan’s potent bowling attack.
However, India’s batting line-up including Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh is capable of destroying any bowling threat but it would be a treat to watch how the Indian batting stalwarts would face quick and aggressive Amir and Wahab Riaz.
