Jadhav credits Dhoni for his game-changing spell against Bangladesh

17 Juin, 2017, 06:13 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

India captain Virat Kohli heads into a Champions Trophy final against arch-rivals Pakistan back on top of the one-day worldwide batting rankings.

Bangladesh, overwhelmed in the biggest match in their history, looked in good shape on 154-2 after being put into bat but lost Tamim Iqbal (70) and Mushfiqur Rahim (61) to Jadhav - an innocuous-looking bowler with an ungainly style.

While Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah delivered at both ends of the innings with two wickets apiece, there was some alchemy from Kohli also.

After their humiliating defeat at the hands of arch-rivals in the first match of ICC Champions Trophy, Pakistani team bounced back against all odds and fought like cornered tigers to face their frenemies yet again in the final.

"India have the upper hand in ICC tournaments", he added.

MASHRAFE MORTAZA: I haven't decided. When you're hitting the short ball well, you know you're hitting well. This is not the first time I'm hearing all these.

"We played some really good cricket".

"I think if we focus on our skills and our abilities and believe in ourselves, we'll give ourselves a chance to do some good things for the team". He is fine. Yeah, definitely you would go with Amir, but we don't mind if Amir can't play.

Later, the 50-year-old clarified his position, saying: "My comments were made after I heard reports of Sarfaraz's refusal to dedicate his performance against Sri Lanka to Miandad and him saying that Miandad criticises the team too much". After the India match, we just motivated the guys. "It ended up changing the whole game for us".

Moreover, India is above Bangladesh even in the case of Net Run Rate.

So you are asking that it's another game, but I think players have to take it easily and have to think the next tour is coming up, South Africa - or no, maybe Australia is coming up, so we have to get ready for it.

Mortaza said that they knew it would be a hard game but they started well and were not feeling any big-match pressure.

"In terms of numbers, Sunday's final features the biggest rivalry in cricket because billions of people in India and Pakistan watching".

Q. What do you have to say about the shot selections by Tamim and Mushfiqur. If you do the right thing, we will appreciate you.

Amir has been a near-constant presence in the Pakistan XI since his return to worldwide cricket at the start of 2016, playing 47 out of the side's 57 global matches, across formats, in this period. There is also Shikhar Dhawan, the competition's leader in runs with 317, per the tournament's official website.
