We are neither intimidated nor arrogant

I am very hopeful of their win especially after the way India have played in the tournament so far.

"Some teams start very confidently and then they fade off".

Arthur is confident that, with key seamer Mohammad Amir fit to come straight back into the team after the back spasm which ruled him out on Wednesday, Pakistan can consign their Birmingham misadventure to history.

Kohli, however, added: "At the same time, neither are we too intimidated nor are we too arrogant about what we are doing".

India also has great variety and balance in its attack with spinners turning the ball in opposite directions, pace and skill.

Pakistan and India have both reached the final in opposite manner.

Scalise condition upgraded to serious
Scalise is a member of the team and had been fielding balls at second base in preparation for the game when he was shot. His blurring of the two was apparent in an ominous March Facebook post: "Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy".

Those two wickets against Sri Lanka have been his only two of the tournament so far, however, albeit his economy rate is a respectable 4.79. It's the 2006 ICC U-19 World Cup in which Pakistan colts defeated their arch rivals by 38 runs in a low-scoring final at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

"There is no guarantee that a team will always win or lose against any particular opposition. They have showed faith in us and we would like them to support us during the final too", the soft-spoken Pakistan skipper said in a hurried tone.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a CAB first division league match between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan, Saha said: "India are overall favourites in every department".

"What we've produced after that doesn't come as any surprise, because that's how we trained, and that's what we worked at. Even today's practice was something extra.There is no over-excitement", Kohli said.

"They are ranked higher than us - so everyone is talking about India, India".

Pakistan lost to India in their first game only to ride their luck and win against South Africa.

Curry hopped and shouted as he gave high-fives to the crowd after getting off a double-decker bus during the Thursday parade. It will start at 10 a.m.at Broadway and 11th Street, wind through downtown streets and end with a procession to the Henry J.

"The more relaxed you stay in these kind of situations, it's a good thing because it helps you take better decisions when you are composed and calm mentally and you can help the team come out of hard situations only if you are thinking in that fashion".

Following their thrashing against India at Edgbaston a fortnight ago, coach Mickey Arthur conceded Pakistan had struggled to cope with the enormous expectation that comes with matches against India, one of the world's biggest and most passionate sporting rivalries. "We won because of prayers and God; and I can not name the facilitators of those prayers".

"We had the mantra "we want to get to London". We don't focus too much on past records", he said. Everyone is aware of the talent Pakistan team has. I think we can see our style and method catching up with the rest of the world because we're being exposed to it now. We've got to try and make that new ball really work for us.

India are cricket royalty, and they will face all the pressure on Sunday.

"That middle order haven't had massive hits, they haven't batted much under pressure of late".
