ICC Champions trophy : Virat Kohli says, Pakistan can upset any team

They looked like a team that wanted to win the championship, winning all the group stage match easily but in the end, when it mattered the most, they failed, simply outplayed by Pakistan.

Despite Pakistan's dismal record against India across ICC tournaments where the record is a whopping 13-2 in favour of "Men In Blue", the current Pakistan skipper has a reason to smile.

As for Pakistan, this wasn't meant to be their day or them tournament, but they are in the finals, call it luck or sheer brilliance, the side stuck together, believed in themselves and now anything can happen.

The deputy drove his marked vehicle to his ex-wife's house at the country club, near Congress Avenue and Boca Club Boulevard. A Broward Sheriff's deputy is under medical evaluation after a two-hour standoff Sunday at Boca Country Club.

Like Pakistan, India also have two members of that side playing in tomorrow's final - Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja. But I heard reports that he refused to do so and said Miandad criticises the team too much.

Pakistan's stand on terrorism is dicier than its cricketers on pitch.

Following the win, Sarfraz said that although no one had expected them to qualify for the finals, they are happy to defy all odds and bounce back from their opening-match defeat to India.

Zach Johnsopn makes the cut at the US Open
Defending champion Dustin Johnson (+4), Rory McIlroy (+5) and Jason Day (+10) will all miss the weekend after their struggles. McIlroy, playing for the first time in a month to rest a nagging rib injury, finally got it going when it was too late.

Former opener Aamer Sohail has clarified that his statement with regard to alleged match-fixing by Pakistan was completely misunderstood.

"Sarfraz needs to be told that you have not done anything special. Don't wish to get into the details on who won them the games", Sohail said during a programme on a Pakistani channel. If asked, I will say that the prayers of the fans and God have won them the games. They have been brought to the final due to external factors and not based on on-field performance.

Sohail was himself at the heart of the match-fixing scandal that rocked Pakistan cricket in the late 1990s. Sometimes, the opposition does play very well.

US Open results: Brooks Koepka wins golf championship with record-equalling score
A fourth place finish at the 2014 US Open had given Koepka a taste of what it might be like to challenge for a major. Koepka is one of a handful of young golfers looking to take the torch from Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
