India bowl against Pakistan in Champions Trophy final

Online Desk
India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field against arch-rivals Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday, AFP reports.


Title-holders India, who thrashed Pakistan by 124 runs in their opening group match, were unchanged from the side that hammered Bangladesh by nine wickets in Thursday's semi-final at Birmingham's Edgbaston.


But Pakistan made one change, with the fit-again Mohammad Amir, who missed Wednesday's impressive eight-wicket semi-final win over previously unbeaten tournament hosts England with a back spasm, returning.


Amir replaced fellow left-arm quick Rumman Raees, who marked his one-day international debut with two wickets against England.


India's lone loss so far in this tournament, featuring the world's top eight ODI nations, was at The Oval when they suffered a surprise seven-wicket defeat by Sri Lanka on June 8.


Pakistan, however, have lost all three of their previous matches against India in the knockout stages of International Cricket Council events.
