Edgbaston: India will finally begin their Champions Trophy campaign on Sunday when they face arch-rivals Pakistan in a much anticipated 50-over game. While India has been distracted a bit by the controversies off the field, Pakistan have had a rather subdued arrival to the Champions Trophy. Pakistan traditionally have had a good bowling attack and so is the case now with Mohammad Amir leading the Pakistan attack, along with able support from Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali.
However, Pakistan's bowling will face a stern test when they come face to face with Virat Kohli's men, who all have been in good form coming into the tournament. India after so many years finall have the luxury of having a well balanced bowling attack comprising of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
The end result could very well down to the contest between India's bowling and Pakistan's batting — where it's advantage India.
