The final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 is being played between two arch-rivals, two Asian giants; India and Pakistan. The summit clash will be played at the KIA Oval in London. The eighth edition of the Mini World, as many would call this tournament is being sponsored by the mobile phones manufacturers, #OPPO.
Talking about both teams, Pakistan was the first among two to qualify for the finals. Their journey didn’t start a good note but later they regrouped and put some superlative shows to make it to the last two. After suffering a defeat at the hands of India by 124 runs in Edgbaston, they beat Sri Lanka, South Africa and surprisingly the hot-favourites, England in the semis.
On the other hand, India had an impressive start to the tournament. In the pursuit to defend its title, India had the better of two sides, Pakistan and South Africa, but was stunned by the Island nation in their second warm-up game. In the semi-final, they beat Bangladesh by a huge margin of nine wickets and fixed a date with their old nemesis in the finals.
Watch the live images, tweets and reactions from the stadium itself. Enjoy the experience. Also, a senior member of the team from Sportzwiki was also present at the stadium.
This is what happened just before the start of the play. The national anthem of both the sides and firecrackers. The video though has been made from OPPO F3.
