But it’s the big final and we are presenting our Astrological Prediction India vs Pakistan Final Champions Trophy 2017.

The numbers show that it will be Pakistan who will stay ahead of everyone in the coming days and we have even witnessed that in recent games. They have been getting better with every game and their best performance came against the tournament favorites, home side England who had been unbeaten throughout the tournament before Pakistan managed to get better of them and defeated them comprehensively in every department of the game.

India vs Pakistan Preview 2017 Final Champions Trophy 2017
In a massive turnaround of events, Pakistan are looking the favorites to win the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The team that started at 8th position in the ICC ODI rankings and got hammered by India in their opening game of the tournament humiliated by a massive 124 runs defeat has now made it to the Final of the Champions Trophy 2017 event and is expected to outsmart then favorites India.
After getting a defeat at the hands of Indians in the first game, Pakistan turned things around in their favor slowly and steadily as they went on to win against South Africa on D/L method by 19 runs and then they managed a close, unlikely victory against Sri Lanka in a low scoring game by 3 wickets. But then came their best performance so far in the tournament when they defeated the hosts, the favorites, England in the 1st Semi Final ICC Champions Trophy 2017 by 8 wickets quite comprehensively. So, with this tough journey they have really got huge confidence and they have learnt the art of winning through the course of this tournament. If they play the way they have been playing so far then they are surely going to win it against a side as good as India.
India’s run in the ICC Champions Trophy had been rather simple this time as they won a big game against Pakistan to start with as they got a 124 runs massive victory on D/L method. Then they were faced with Sri Lanka, where they had an unlikely defeat even after scoring 321 runs. The Sri Lankan batsmen exposed Indian bowling and were right on top throughout the game. Sri Lanka won by 7 wickets against them. Then they had a must-win game against South Africa where they made a strong come back to win by 8 wickets. They had a rather sluggish opposition in the semi final in the form of Bangladesh and they dominated them quite easily by winning again by 9 wickets and chasing down 265 at the loss of just 1 wicket.
So, we’d say it has been a rather easy run for India in this tournament and Pakistan are expected to dominate them this time around just like they did against England who were unbeaten in the tournament before they had played Pakistan. So, a similar result is very much on the cards.
India vs Pakistan CT 2017 Final – Players In The Spotlight
Both the sides have got some great players who will play their part in the Final ICC Champions Trophy 2017. They have players who are quite capable of turning the game around over their head. So, let’s take a look at players in the spotlight in both batting and bowling departments for the ICC CT 2017 Final Ind vs Pak on 18th of June 2017.
Pakistan Batting – Players In The Spotlight
Fakhar Zaman: Included in the playing XI after a massive defeat against India in the first game, Fakhar has impressed everyone a lot with his firepower and the exuberance that he adds to an otherwise sluggish batting line of Pakistan. Having scored 138 runs in 3 games with a couple of quick half-centuries, he really will be a threat for Indian bowlers.
Azhar Ali: The sluggish Azhar wouldn’t have made to this list hadn’t he scored a brilliant, anchoring 76 against England in the big semi final. If he manages to give a big start to Pakistan with Fakhar as they have done in last two games then Pakistan will surely have a big chance to win the Final.
Shoaib Malik: The experienced Shoaib Malik, though hasn’t scored much runs in the tournament, has been free-flowing every time he has made it to the center. If he gets going in the big game then he will be a nightmare for the Indian bowlers.
Babar Azam: The young no.3 for Pakistan has shown glimpses of his talent in a couple of knocks in the tournament, especially against South Africa and England. He looked ever more confident against England during his 30 odd runs knock and will play a major role in the next game.
Pakistan Bowling – Players In The Spotlight
Hasan Ali: Very quickly becoming the bowling spearhead for Pakistan’s ferocious bowling attack, Hasan has really been ecstatic throughout the tournament. He brings the zeal and fervor to the entire side and has been the leading wicket taker in the tournament so far with his 10 wickets. Indian batsmen will have to find out a way to deal with him in the middle overs if they really have to challenge Pakistan.
Junaid Khan: Though Junaid hasn’t picked many wickets with the new ball ever since his inclusion against South Africa, but he has dominated with the ball in his second spell throughout this tournament. Having got Kohli out 3 times for just 22 runs, Junaid Khan really has some stat worth talking about. He can cause some problems for sure.
Shadab Khan: Young leggie has been impressive every time he gets a chance. In the semi final he picked the big wicket of Joe Root and helped Pakistan paved way for victory. He’ll surely be in the spotlight.
Mohammad Amir: Probably the most economical bowler in the game against India, Amir is not leaking runs at the top and is creating pressure with the new ball. If he picks up a wicket or two up front as well, then he can make things easier for Pakistan against a long batting line of India.
Indian Batting – Players In The Spotlight
Shikhar Dhawan: Being the highest run getter in the tournament having scored 317 runs in 4 innings including 2 fifties and one century, Shikhar really is the wakeup call for Pakistan. If he gets going against Pakistan as well then it will be a hard day out there for the Pakistani bowlers.
Rohit Sharma: Rohit, sealing the spot of second highest run getter in the tournament, has scored 304 runs in 4 innings with 2 fifties and 1 century. He is also in great flow and rhythm and will be dangerous for Pakistan if they don’t get him out early on.
Virat Kohli: Coming in the same sequence as they follow in the batting order. Virat has been the real wall in Indian batting line up. Placed 6th on the list of most runs getters in the tournament, Virat has scored 253 runs in 4 innings out which he remained Not Out thrice. His highest in the tournament, an unbeaten 96, came against Bangladesh in the big Semi Final and he poses the real threat to Pakistan’s strong bowling line up.
Yuvraj Singh: Yuvraj hasn’t had much time in the middle, except from the game against Pakistan, throughout this tournament but he showed what kind of destruction he can cause in that very game. Scoring 53 from just 32 balls, he showed that he can be a real destroyer on his day and Pakistan will definitely have to watch out for him in the last game.
Indian Bowling – Players In The Spotlight
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: Picking up 6 wickets in 4 matches, he has been the best bowler so far from India. With an economy of 4.70 so far in the tournament, he knows how to keep things tight and create pressure on the opposition.
Jasprit Bumrah: Bumrah has picked up 4 wickets in the tournament by now and has bowled at an economy of 4.30 in the tournament. He’s the best when it comes to bowling at the death. If he sticks to his performance that he has given so far then he can certainly write the script of the Final for India.
Ravindra Jadeja: Jadeja has been skiddy and intelligent with his left-arm orthodox. He has also picked 4 wickets so far in the tournament and 2 of them came against Pakistan. He troubled Pakistani batsmen quite a lot in the first game and will be in the spotlight yet again.
Ravichandran Ashwin: R Ashwin wasn’t the first choice bowler for India but they have played him in last 2 matches and if they continue with the same winning combination then he’ll definitely be one to watch out for in the Final ICC CT 2017 India vs Pakistan considering his past record against Pakistan.
India vs Pakistan CT 2017 Final – Captain’s Corner
Let’s take a look at how the captains from both the teams have performed in the tournament so far and what they have achieved for their teams overall.
Pakistan Captain – Sarfaraz Ahmed
Pakistan captain Sarfaraz is still in the learning phases and has only played a couple of series as captain across all formats. His inexperience was quite evident in the first game against India but he has made great strides forward after that and is looking immensely confident since last few matches Pakistan have played so far in the tournament. What’s even better, he has been able to induct that confidence and a sense of self-belief into his players as well and that reflect quite evidently in the game against England, the 1st Semi Final of the tournament. Let’s take a look at his stats in the tournament.
Matches Played: 4
Matches Won: 3
Runs Scored: 76
Indian Captain – Virat Kohli
India have a comparatively senior captain than Pakistan as Kohli has been leading the side in all formats for quite some time now. His experience reflects in the way he makes decisions in the field. Besides, his batting performance has been great as always and he has a habit of leading his side from the front. Over the years, both as an individual player and captain, he has served as the wall of Indian batting and provides great stability to the batting order by coming in at all-important no.3. Here are a few stats for captain Kohli in this very tournament.
Matches Played: 4
Matches Won: 3
Runs Scored: 253
The Bottom Line
So, whoever wins this ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Final India vs Pakistan, one thing is for sure: the game on Sunday is not going to be as straight forward as the one we had in the start of the tournament when the two sides met at Edgbaston, Birmingham. Whoever will play their A game are definitely going to end up on top and with the trophy in their hands.
