Just five days after India plays Pakistan in the final of the ICC Champion's Trophy, they will face West Indies in the Caribbean for 5 ODIs and a single T20.

"The other thing I said was that the facilitators of the win can not be named; however I said nothing about match-fixing or any other foul play - my statement was misunderstood", Sohail said.

On the other hand in hockey, India is now ranked 6th in World Hockey, while Pakistan are 13th. "I have never tried my hand in it but they are pretty good, so they will be fine", Kohli said.

While talking to media, the former skipper professed that Pakistan should bat first in the final and then rely on their fast bowling to attack in order to defend the target.

Commenting on the kind of pressure ahead of a high-octane India-Pakistan match, Manpreet said the team will come up with a good show. Why not rest these players and send a younger squad to play the #9 ranked team in the ICC ODI rankings?

"And since this is the first time India and Pakistan will be meeting in the final of a cricket tournament in around 10 years, the bets are high". Pakistan, after their loss to India, have won all matches.

Yet even by their own "unpredictable" standards, Pakistan's transformation since that reverse has been remarkable and on Wednesday they knocked previously unbeaten tournament hosts England out of the competition with a comprehensive eight-wicket win in Cardiff.

"This is the game they want, but it is up to us how we handle the pressure on the day".

Aamir took matters further when he made a cryptic suggestion that external factors were at play in Pakistan's run to the finals that helped them set up a mouthwatering clash against arch-rivals India in the final to be played on Sunday.

And he insisted a Pakistan victory would be no great surprise.
