Pakistan sweat over India's squad for Champions Trophy
- India are scheduled to face Pakistan in their first game of the ICC Champions Trophy on June 4.
- India have announced a seriously tough squad for the Champions Trophy.
- Pakistan have never won against India in any ICC tournaments.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was the last to announce the India ODI squad for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy 2017. As and when it was announced, it immediately posed a threat to their opponents in the tournament.
By the look of the side, which Virat Kohli has picked for the Champions Trophy, it is more than evident that he will be travelling to England and Wales for nothing but to bring that trophy back home. India have probably announced the strongest squad for the Champions Trophy and that has already unnerved the Chief Selector of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Inzamam-ul-Haq.
The former Pakistan captain is worried about his side's past record against India at the ICC events. They have never won against India at any ICC events till date and it looks like a far-fetched idea this time around as well.
"We don't have a great record against India in major events, but every day is a new day and I am sure the players will perform well in the first match.The June 4 game is very important for us, not only because it is against India, but also because it will go a long way in helping us qualify for the semi-finals.Our team is quite balanced and has a nice blend of youthful exuberance and experience," Inzamam was quoted as saying by the Express Tribune.
India are supposed to play Pakistan in their first game of the ICC Champions Trophy in Birmingham on June 4.
