India will take on arch-rivals Pakistan in the opening match of the Champions Trophy hockey tournament on Saturday at Breda, Netherlands. Asian champions India have never won the Champions Trophy in its last 36 editions but will be hoping to claim the feat in the tournament's last edition.
The best India have fared in the tournament was the runners-up finish at the 2016 event in London, losing to Australia in a penalty shoot-out.
Even though India (6th) are way ahead of Pakistan (13th) in the world rankings, there is hardly any gap between the two teams when it comes to the head-to-head contests.
India-Pakistan encounters on the hockey turf have always been full of drama and controversies with adrenaline running high on both the sides.
And come Friday it won't be any different as both the neighbours would be eager to prove the other wrong.
