India vs Pakistan Match Live Streaming Online: Sunday will be a unique day in the history of the sports for India and Pakistan. Heathrow is expected to be teeming with Indian and Pakistani jerseys. On the other, the arch-rivals will also clash at the Olympic Park in a match of the FIH World Hockey League semi-finals.
India’s remarkable consistency will be high up against Pakistan’s legendary volatility when the rivals clash in what is expected to be an exciting finale to the ICC Champions Trophy. Defending Champions India had got the better of the rivals in the league stage of the ongoing tournament. And captain Virat Kohli has already declared that nothing extra is needed to get the same result despite the turnaround by Sarfraz Ahmed’s men since then. It is nonetheless a battle of attrition, where one needs to hold the nerve till the very end.
Not many would have thought this edition of the Champions Trophy would end the long wait, especially on the back of how comprehensively India humbled their arch rivals two Sundays ago at Edgbaston. But while India has, save the upset against Sri Lanka, cruised into the final as defending champions, Pakistan has defied all expectations with exceptional cricket.
“As the tournament goes on, at some point we will reach the final stage. We will still take it as another match. We haven’t spoken about this game in any different way. We have practiced the same way from the first day we came here. There’s no over-excitement,” the Indian captain confessed to media.
