The incident took place recently when some Pakistani fans after their team entered the Champions Trophy finals surrounded Sourav Ganguly's vehicle and started to heckle him.

This is only the second time in India's last five appearances at the Champions Trophy that they've managed to progress beyond the group stage; they did go on to win it on that previous occasion though (2013). We have practiced the same way as we started the day we came here.

"We are really encouraged by the support of fans here and back home, we will give our best to make them feel happy", he said.

The ICL may have forced the BCCI's hand but without the catalyst of a thrilling win in a major global final, and over Pakistan as well, would Twenty20 have taken off with fans and officials alike in India, cricket's economic powerhouse, in quite the same way? "We just want to enjoy the finals and we deserve to be there", the skipper had a calm confidence in his tone.

Kohli also indicated that he would not be making any change in the Playing XI and would go with the same team that played against Bangladesh in the semi-finals.

Twenty20, pioneered as a professional sport in the English county game, was still in its global infancy a decade ago, when Johannesburg hosted the 2007 World Twenty20 final, with many players inclined to treat it as just a bit of fun compared to the more serious business of one-day internationals and Test matches.

But, he insisted that his team never takes anything for granted.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), unhappy at what it saw as a threat to its power, imposed lifetime bans on players joining the ICL and a year later launched the Indian Premier League, which effectively killed off its domestic rival.

"There is no guarantee that a team will always win or lose against any particular opposition". We are not going to take anything for granted for sure.

Star South African batsman A B de Villiers today heaped praise on Virat Kohli, describing him as "a consummate surgeon at the crease" who is able to cope with extreme pressure that is associated with leading a top side like India. The turnaround has been magnificent.

"Whether you have played people or you haven't, you can not guarantee your performance".

"They have beaten sides that looked really strong against them, but the belief just showed on the field the way they played together as a team, and you know, regardless of who you play in the finals, it's always going to be challenging because once you start thinking that it's a big game, then your mindset changes", the skipper gave a peek into the mindset of an global team.
