"That's how this game goes, and that's the beauty of this game", said Kohli when asked if Pakistan will be rattled by India's performance. "When things don't go well - and, unfortunately, for Virat as for anyone else, things don't always go well - he falls back on his intense commitment and works ever harder until he turns the corner and meets the excessively high expectations", concluded de Villiers.

Gautam Gambhir was the star for India scoring a quick 75 off just 54 balls, studded with eight fours and two sixes. However, after this match, Pakistan had a hegemony over India for many years, especially in matches held at Sharjah. "It's similar to bowling a length ball but the more you practice it, the better you get at it".
Pakistan's rejuvenation has been built around the runs of opener Fakhar Zaman and the experienced Azhar Ali while Hasan Ali and Junaid Khan stepped up to compensate for the absence of Amir who is expected to be fit for the final. A fresh pitch at The Oval will present a very different challenge against India's pedigree batting line-up, however.
