ICC Champions Trophy Final Preview – India vs Pakistan – Sunday 18 June
We get a dream final for the ICC Champions Trophy on Sunday with arch rivals India and Pakistan doing battle for the 2nd time in this competition to decide who takes home the silverware.
India were totally dominant in their Group phase match up on the 4th of June making 3/319 totally destroying the Pakistan attack which was emphasized by the fact 3 of their front line attack went for greater than 7 runs an over on near full spells. Kohli was 81 not out at the end of their innings that day and he has since produced an even better innings in India’s semi final romp over Bangladesh.
There is no doubting both India and Pakistan come through the stronger half of the Group stage that also included South Africa and Sri Lanka. With that in mind it is very relevant to look at their respective dominance of their semi final wins.
India’s semi final win was by far more dominant compared ot that of Pakistan and the same can be said for India’s Group stage win over Pakistan as previously mentioned.
We see India winning this game 70% of occasions under the current circumstances and form lines seen through the rest off the Champions Trophy tournament. Currently India can be backed at 1.48 on Betfair. We have them assessed as a 1.42 chance. Minor overs, back India to win with a very strong degree of confidence at the odds of 1.48.
Back INDIA to defeat PAKISTAN in the Final of the ICC Champions Trophy at odds of 1.48
