Champions Trophy success hinges on execution for India's Kohli

Champions Trophy success hinges on execution for India's Kohli

"We sent out a message (to ICC) raising our concerns about security of the Indian team's travel, accommodation and the playing (area)", BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary told reporters.

Yes, an Indo-Pak game is always exciting.

India, the defending champions, will play two matches, and so will the remaining five teams, with England and South Africa not taking part in any of the warm-up games, as the host nation and the Proteas are now involved in an ODI series. As far as the mindset was concerned, it made me realise that I can not do everything in every game.

"England have been playing some really good cricket both home and away, but I don't necessarily think there's much pressure on them. In the ICC World Cup you have a league and a lot of games to play but here it is group games and then either the semis or you are out". There has been no restriction on player movements, but the team managements have been briefed by the ICC security officials.

But Hussey was confident that Kohli and other Indian batmen's form would not play a big role.

Cape Town - With less than a week to go until the first ball of the ICC Champions Trophy is bowled, former West Indies captain Brian Lara has tipped England to lift the trophy as he helped The Prince of Wales launch the tournament. "If (Mahendra Singh) Dhoni and Yuvraj (Singh) play with freedom then it boosts the morale of the team and that's what was seen during the series against England", he added. "That was a piece of history that I was also part of and I feel that the Indian squad of today are strong contenders to become champions again in 2017", he added.

The Australian players halted their training session at The Oval in south London on Thursday to gather in the middle of the ground and acknowledge this week's tragic event in Manchester.

Kohli, incidentally, will return to England for the first time after his disastrous outing in England three years ago.

Pointing out the significance of the tournament, he said, "I'm sure there's going to be a lot of transparency about the issue, because there's a lot at stake for everyone here". We just have to go out there and concentrate; the rest will be taken care of by the respective personnel.

Kohli's 50-over form in the past 12 months is nothing short of exemplary, with an average of over 90 - while he already has the fourth most one-day global centuries in history. England brings a lot for challenges for a batsmen and I want to overcome them personally for my satisfaction at the end of my career. "Maybe it was to teach me to balance things out and take a step back and think about how much you can do on the field and how much intensity with which you can play - may choose your phases". "We experienced that in India, they are pretty hard to get past, and that's something that is going to be a challenge for every other team in the Champions Trophy as well".
