However, Pakistan, under the captaincy of Sarfraz Ahmed, have come back strongly after their opening defeat and have peaked at the right time. Their win over England in the semi-final shows that they can beat any team on their day. (ALL THE RESULTS)
India’s top order has been in superb form so far, and they will be the key for India once again.

“The way youngsters have performed in this tournament is really encouraging for us, they all have played an important role in bringing Pakistan to the final of this tournament – Sarfraz Ahmed credits his youngsters for the turnaround in England.
