Coach: Pakistan mindset better for CT final after India loss

Coach: Pakistan mindset better for CT final after India loss

In their last three games, they have restricted South Africa (219-8), Sri Lanka (236 all out), and England (211 all out) to low totals which shows how good their bowling has been.

"We need to protect him going further because [in the] latter half of the year we have massive tours coming up, and his batting contribution will be a huge factor for us". But I understand as a player that it is not possible.

According to Arthur, India's top-order has done marvelously well and the middle-order has not been tested throughout the competition, so if Pakistan want to create a chance for themselves, they'll have to focus their attack on Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli who have been scoring the bulk of the runs for the Men in Blue.

The excitement among the fans and advertisers for the mouthwatering clash is at an all-time high, fans from both the nations hoping their team prevails and make their nation proud while it's a jackpot for advertisers who are cashing in as much as they can during the finals. It all depends on how you perform and give your 100 percent on that day. Aim is to play well, and past statistics and records don't matter. But as we've seen on multiple occasions in the tournament so far, you simply can not rule out Pakistan before the start of a game.

"You know, the ability to think otherwise in a hard situation is something that sets you apart and actually pulls the team through". "But I can tell you one thing-we have come to win", the former all-rounder, who spent several seasons with Oval-based Surrey, added ahead of Pakistan's first match of the tournament at the ground.

"Everyone is aware of the kind of talent Pakistan have in their team". "They've beaten sides that looked really strong against them".

Two neighbouring Tube lines are to be partly suspended into a second day amid safety concerns of debris falling on to the tracks. The cause of the fire was still unknown, but police said there was nothing to indicate it was started deliberately .

"But, at the same time, neither are we too intimidated nor are we too arrogant about what we are doing". Earlier, it used to be Shoaib (Akhtar) and Umar Gul vs us and now Amir is their best bowler.

"It's going to be a very well-contested match". They told me how proud they were of our 2007 T20 World Cup win.

But after bowling in the nets at the Oval on Friday, Amir said: "I am fast gaining fitness".

"You can't think of those things when you step on to the field", said Kohli. I am already preparing for the win. Arthur believes that the Indian Premier League has contributed to the gap, but says the advent of the Pakistan Super League is helping his side to catch up. I don't take any extra pressure. It's basically how you react to every ball that's bowled to you regardless of whether you've played against the guy or you haven't.

Amir, however, has once again become a mainstay of the Pakistan team since returning to the side early in 2016, appearing in 47 of the team's 57 matches across all worldwide formats following his comeback.
