Kohli wishes Indian hockey team ahead of Pakistan HWL clash

Sunday, June 18, 2017 will be a big day for the sports enthusiasts, as Pakistan will be up against India in the final of the Champions Trophy and in the Hockey World League (HWL) semi-finals in London.

"Green shirts must bat first and put up a good total on board and then tackle India with their strong bowling because it has emerged as our strength in this tournament", said Khan.

"India-Pak will continue to play at worldwide tournaments but neither India will play in Pak nor Pak will play in India", said BJP president Shah after questions were raised over India and Pakistan playing sports once again.

Roelant Oltmans' men saw off a challenge from Scotland in their first game, coming out with a 4-1 win to begin their tournament in the manner they wanted.

Title-holders India will be firm favourites against a Pakistan side who were the lowest ranked of all the teams taking part in a tournament featuring the world's top-eight one-day global sides. We all know what happens behind the scenes.

"If asked, I will say that the prayers of the fans and God has won them the games.

The boys now need to be level-headed and focus on playing good cricket", the former Pakistan captain added.

The BJP president said, the two countries will continue to play against each other in worldwide tournaments but neither India plays in Pakistan nor Pakistan plays in India.

"They are ranked higher than us - so everyone is talking about India, India". "India refuse to play against us (in Pakistan's adopted home of the United Arab Emirates)". The last time they met was in 2007 in South Africa when India won by 5 runs to lift the World Twenty20 trophy.

"This is the game they want, but it is up to us how we handle the pressure on the day".

"Nobody recognised us, nobody thought we'll qualify for the final.Credit to the team and the team management for how we came back after the loss to India", he said.

And he insisted a Pakistan victory would be no great surprise.
