Here are some strong and weak points for both of teams:
The Strong point of Team India:
India is qualifying for the fourth time in ICC Champion trophy so it wasn't a surprise for the audience. They have the strongest team in all format so far. Some players in current champion trophy have performed extraordinarily brilliantly such as Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh and Rohit. These are the top three batsmen in Indian squad which may perform in the final as well. Don't go away, Kohli on the other end can't be judged. His current average in the event is above 250. Which is amazing. IPL has also gifted some players in Indian squad such as Pandya, Bumrah.
From the bowling point of view, they have some weak points, but if India set a huge total on the board batting first, then their chances of winning the title are bright.
Finally, we have calculated as:
- Strong batting line up
- Feilding is fabulous
- Captain with strong mind and skills. He can use his squad quite efficiently
Team Pakistan has made quite changes in the squad after their first defeat. Shehzad was dropped in the very next match against South Africa. Fakhar Zaman played aggressively in all matches played against South Africa, Srilanka and England. He can also put some good opening score on the board. Azhar Ali has performed well against England but he is not consistent in his batting. Babar Azam, yes he is a man, which can perform well in the final. Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Imad Wasim can't be judged before the match. So Pakistan is strong in Bowling. He has some good bowling attack such as Amir, Rumman Raees, Shadab and Hasan Ali a young talented fast bowler on the top of the list for the current event in England. Yes, he is a true star for the final match and expectations are from Amir and Hasan.
Finally, we have some strong points for team Pakistan:
- Strong bowling combinations
- A young talented and aggressive captain
- And yes, they are unpredictable, they can beat any team in the world.
