Champions Trophy 2017: Brian Lara Backs This Team To Win Title

06 Juin, 2017, 10:21 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

"It was so freakish, everything we tried was just going against us".

"I feel you have to be prepaid for any challenge thrown at you and I generally expect placid wickets and that's the way I prepare for limited overs format". You need to play with the same kind of passion regardless of who you are playing against.

With the Champions Trophy just a week away, the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) moved quickly to reassure all concerned of a "robust safety and security plan" in the aftermath of the suspected suicide bombing in Manchester on Monday. "The security concerns are that much more intense", said Choudhary. They'll keep them relaxed, really calm and that's where they'll come in and play a really important part. I never experienced that before. "These wickets (in the past season) have come and they are result of how much have strived for excellence, all I am trying to do is use this experience", Ashwin remarked.

India are placed in Group B along side South Africa, Sri Lanka and Pakistan while the other group comprises Australia, England, New Zealand and Bangladesh. "I was not able to contribute to the team and I want to succeed, although not to prove a point".

From the team's perspective, Kohli felt India couldn't afford a slow start given the short and intensive structure of the Champions Trophy.

Sourav Ganguly-led Indian side made it to the finals of ICC Champions Trophy in 2000 and 2002. The team has grown a lot since the 2015 World Cup under Mashrafe Mortaza. "Yes, you need passion but you can't be too emotional against any one team".

"In the ICC Cricket World Cup you have a league and a lot of games to play but here it is group games and then either the semis or you are out".

"If you think too far ahead and try and think you are defending the title, it is going to put unnecessary undue pressure on you".

Kohli was speaking hours before setting off for England to compete in the ICC Champions Trophy, where India will hope to defend the silverware they won three summers ago.

"It is different for different people, some people can not connect the two formats at all, some people take bits and pieces and put into place in all three formats". From then to now, I have shown I am strong mentally.

"The last Champions Trophy helped us find the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan".

"The hunger to win and ruthlessness is what we speak about all the time", he said. "I'm sure they'll be eager to go a long way in this tournament".

"I don't think they've scored anything less than 330 now, which moves the game on pretty rapidly".

With just over a week remaining before the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 gets ready to rumble in England, all teams will want to be as prepared and as ready as possible for the big tournament.

"It's so hard in these tournaments because they are all so good".
