After the Indian cricket team defeated Bangladesh comprehensively by 9 wickets on Thursday to set up a mouth-watering final against Pakistan on Sunday, wishes have started to pour in for Virat Kohli and co from all parts of the country.
India will now play Pakistan in the final of the tournament where they will be seeking to lift the trophy for the third time.
"India have the upper hand in ICC tournaments".
For the tournament's sake, I hope we see a closer game of cricket than we did in the two semi-finals, as well as a mutual respect and enjoyment of the spectacle from the opposing fans. "There were huge expectations they'd go on to win the tournament, I think justifiably so on the back of what they've done over the last year-and-a-half", said Atherton. Sarfraz Ahmed's team received a shellacking in the group stage - and India are now 4/9 with Bet365 to lift the trophy - but Pakistan are perhaps worth a bob or two at 7/4. It won't be a shock. I was trying to get a big one.
McIlroy motivated by 'busy summer' after missing US Open cut
Rory McIlroy is hoping to "play a lot of golf" over the coming weeks and months, after missing the cut at the U.S. When it was clear he had nothing going in the second round, he was simply trying to stay out of the way.
India eased past Bangladesh to enter the finals while Pakistan got the better of the more fancied England team in their semifinal clash. We expect the Indian top-order to be amongst the runs once again.
Pakistan did not want to be known as an unpredictable side, Mahmood insisted.
The two men looked comfortable against India's impressive attack, putting on a 123-run stand and for a while they looked likely to push Bangladesh to a total of more than 300. "We will have to improve in a lot of areas", Shakib observed. "Their coach Trevor Bayliss has always asked for them to play smart cricket, not just gung-ho cricket". When we're good we're very good but when we're bad we're very poor.
India have so far beaten Pakistan in only one out of seven Asian Games Hockey final face-offs and in one out of four Asia Cup Hockey Final matches. India has since refused to play Pakistan outside International Cricket Council events. It's like the Ashes; it's bigger than the Ashes.

"My comments were made after I heard reports of Sarfaraz's refusal to dedicate his performance against Sri Lanka to Miandad and him saying that Miandad criticises the team too much.The other thing I said was that the facilitators of the win can not be named".
"Our real strength is our bowling and we must bat first if we win the toss. It will be a good gift for the nation for Eid". "Credit to him", Kohli said. At the moment he bowled today. Back spasms take two days anyway. We are just going to go there and try to do the same things again and again. "We should take a break and then sit together to decide the future course of action", concluded the champion all-rounder.
Pakistan's rejuvenation has been built around the runs of opener Fakhar Zaman and the experienced Azhar Ali while Hasan Ali and Junaid Khan stepped up to compensate for the absence of Amir who is expected to be fit for the final.
After one appeal too many, the colourful Pakistani batsman turned and faced his opponent - before jumping up and down on the spot, animatedly mimicking More's appealing.
