Kohli wishes Indian hockey team ahead of Pakistan HWL clash

Pakistan beat India by 180 runs at the Oval, bowling their opponents out for 158 in pursuit of their first innings score of 338. They were eventually dismissed for 158 in reply to Pakistan's 4-338, which featured Fakhar Zaman's 114, the left-handed opener's maiden one-day global hundred coming in just his fourth match at this level. After the India game, we came back superbly.

Arthur said on Sunday: "It's been an up and down ride for us, but so proud of the boys".

"This is the first ICC event for many of these players".

Amir, who missed Pakistan's eight-wicket semi-final win over England with a back spasm, finished with 3-16 runs in six overs. "But I am happier and delighted for players like Fakhar Zaman and Hassan Ali, who impressed their peers through their talent and performances, and found their way to the side".

Amir, whose career was nearly ended on the other side of London's River Thames by a ban and jail term he received for his part in a spot-fixing scam during a 2010 Test against England at Lord's, trapped Rohit Sharma lbw for nought with a swinging delivery and removed India talisman Virat Kohli with another fine ball which the captain could only edge to point for five. You have to understand whether you made the batsman hit where you wanted him to hit and take a risk, or you have bowled a bad ball.

Bayern Munich laugh off rumours of Ronaldo deal
The Portugal forward has told Los Blancos he wants to leave the club following a tax row the 32-year-old is now embroiled in. Calderon was at Real when the club bought Ronaldo from the Red Devils in a then-world record £80m deal in 2009.

"Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli have been in tremendous form so I was looking for early wickets - and I did it", he said.

After leaving India reeling on six for two following the dismissals of Sharma and Kohli, Amir's figures read 1.4 overs, four runs, two wickets.

"With the ball we could have had a few more wicket-taking opportunities throughout the innings", he added. "So you have to accept losses, you have to accept that the other team has outplayed you and they've shown better skill than you, they've shown better composure in pressure situations than you".

While there are many sensible Indians who applauded the efforts of team India and tried to post motivational messages to boost the spirits of the cricket team, it was the love that came from Pakistan that truly lifted the spirits of many. Pandya was livid but he was only delaying the inevitable. "Especially on wickets like these, where if a batsman gets going, it really becomes hard for the spinner and people are slogging across the line and getting away with it", Kohli reasoned.
