During a talkshow on India's Aaj Tak TV, Aamir questioned India's "hardened stance" on playing cricket with Pakistan.

"And I believe that Virat Kohli will depend a lot on Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, possibly two of the best death bowlers in world cricket, to bowl well at the end", Laxman told IANS. The Jason Roy is under pressure due to his lack of runs at the top of the order and it may also force the team to choose Jonny Bairstow for England Playing XI.

Saddled by off-field distractions, defending champions India will look to start their 2017 ICC Champions Trophy campaign on a high when they take on arch-rivals Pakistan in a Group B encounter at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground here on Sunday. From the choice of Imrul Kayes and Sabbir Rahman, one of them will play the No. 3 in the batting lineup.

Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi said on Friday that India hold the edge in the much-awaited clash considering current form. If Pakistan dismisses Kohli cheaply, it will significantly increase their chances of restricting India to a low score.

The Champions Trophy opener is set to feature several survivors on both sides from Bangladesh's 2015 World Cup win over England when a hundred from Mahmudullah and aggressive seam bowling propelled the Tigers to a memorable success at the Adelaide Oval.

In 87 years of worldwide cricket since New Zealand played their first Test in 1930, the only tournament they have won was when they beat India in the 2000 Champions Trophy final.

Shaharyar also spoke about the expectations that Pakistan fans around the world have from the team and Sarfaraz Ahmed and his boys shouldn't let them down.

In the second warm-up against Bangladesh, the left-hander blasted 60 off 67 balls as India scored 324 for seven in 50 overs.

Stokes and Tamim were involved in a verbal altercation as tempers frayed in the sunshine but the left-hander reached his century off 124 balls, including two sixes and 11 fours.

Bangladesh come into the Champions Trophy bolstered by warm-up wins over New Zealand and Ireland in Dublin this month. While talking about the upcoming India vs Pakistan clash, the man from Dubbo said, "It's always a big game whenever India play Pakistan". But Yousuf Youhana and Inzamam-ul-Haq's 75-run partnership helped Pakistan beat India in the last over, for the first time in a major tournament.

The two sides last met in Kolkata during the World T20 a year ago, when hosts India outplayed Pakistan in a group match.
