ICC Champions Trophy: Virender Sehwag can not wait for India vs Pakistan clash

Having won their first ever ODI match against New Zealand only earlier this month, the Men in Green, with considerable pressure of expectations, will be well-served if they manage to beat India tomorrow.

Bangladesh suffered a dispiriting warm-up for their Champions Trophy opener against England as they crashed to a 240-run defeat against India yesterday.

Though the players of both camps have tried their best to keep away from the political views and counter views around the match, the undercurrents are palpable given the cautious replies coming from either camps in the build-up to the game.

With the start of the Champions Trophy -- a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide sides - just two days away, this was a poorly-timed flop from Bangladesh, whose bowlers were swatted away by holders India as they piled up 324 for seven. Although only five, Mackenzie is a knowledgable critic of her father and when Taylor was recently going through a poor patch of form she told him: "Dad, I think now you should poke your tongue out if you get to 50". We had to go through a lot of lost matches, hard work and criticism as well. Rising left-hand batsman Fakhar Zaman said he has no particular bowler as his target but will play every ball according to merit during the India-Pakistan game. "[We are] probably one of the most successful teams in the world if you see in the last two years", he added.

Iran arrests 7 suspects for supporting Tehran attacks
The ministry said the men had fought for IS in Mosul, Iraq , and Raqqa, Syria , before returning to Iran last August. With Saturday's arrests, the number of suspects rounded up in the wake of the attacks rose to 49.

Karthik, who got out for a duck in the first warm-up match against New Zealand, made full use of the opportunity in the second game as he tore apart the Bangladeshi attack in his 77-ball knock which was studded with 8 fours and a six.

Kohli got runs on Sunday, but the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Jadhav will like to get some runs just to feel at ease. "We are looking to maintain that against them and it's very exciting". Dhawan was also the best batsman of Champions Trophy 2013 in England.

"We've done well against [England], but they are playing in home conditions and they have some serious individual players as well".

"I've spent plenty of time up in Brisbane in the nets, but it will be nice to get out and bowl some overs in the middle", Starc said. "We are trying to execute our plans". We back KedarJadhav and Hardik Pandya to do it for us down the order.
