It’s India vs Pakistan on Sunday at the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 finals and this game is by far the biggest ODI for both teams till date. The importance of this match intensifies when you consider the animosity between the two countries at the Line of Control (LoC). This is no less than a war!
The winner will walk away with bragging rights and it will sustain them for a long time as there will be no Bilateral Series between the Cricket frenzy nations in the near future.
The last time India-Pakistan were in an ODI Final of a major International event was in 1985 when India defeated Pakistan under the leadership of the legendary Kapil Dev in the World Series.
