Earlier, the chief selector of Pakistan cricket team and former Test captain Inzamam-ul-Haq stated very confidently that Pakistan will not only beat India in the competition but will also win the Champions Trophy.
We don’t have a great record against India in major events but every day is a new day and I am sure the players will perform well in the first match,” he said, as quoted by Tribune.
