What a Sunday it’s going to be this time around! A day that people will not forget for a long time and its evident that they will stay in the euphoria of that day for the next couple of days. India and Pakistan, the arch rivals, the old enemies and the two finalists of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 will lock horns and Sunday and people are just going gaga about it.
Pakistan outplayed the hosts and hot favorites England in a game which took uncharacteristic twists and turns. Pakistan eventually won the match comfortably and defied all the predictions made before the tournament began.
India on the other annihilated Bangladesh, who were making their first ever appearance in the top 4 of an ICC event. Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kedar Jadhav and Jasprit Bumrah just proved to be too strong for the latest sensation of world cricket.
It was a statement of intent from both the sides in the semifinals, which eventually sets up for a hot and spicy encounter on Sunday. No team is going to run away with the title and it seems currently as though a tight game is on the cards.
Pakistan are heavily reliant on their bowling unit to do the good job first up so that their batsmen can finish the game in the second half. This is how they won their previous three games against three strong sides in England, Sri Lanka and South Africa.
Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim and Junaid Khan will probably represent their bowling unit and their chances of winning the title on Sunday are quite heavily reliant on them. Batting still looks a bit vulnerable for Pakistan, but the quality in the side cannot be doubted.
Well, the game of cricket will end up as the winner on Sunday without a shadow of a doubt and we at The Youth wish both the sides all the very best. Here’s how fans are spamming twitter in awe of this epic clash on Sunday.
