Kashmir on edge ahead of India-Pakistan ICC clash

Pakistan demolish holders India to win Champions Trophy

Pakistan demolish holders India to win Champions Trophy

Pakistan have been badly bruised against India this series in their opening group stage match, having lost the game by 124 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method.

· This will be the fifth time these sides would have faced off in the Champions Trophy; the record is now balanced with two victories each. Matches between the two old rivals is never a boring one with the adrenaline hitting record highs every time.

Revelation and redemption helped Pakistan turn world cricket's order upside down as Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day worldwide century and Mohammad Amir's brilliant new-ball spell underpinned a landslide 180-run win over India in the Champions Trophy final.

India shared the Champions Trophy with Sri Lanka in 2002 and beat England in the 2013 final.

According to IBT , scientists had hoped that their haul would ignite public interest in what's going on down there. The recently discovered faceless fish looks unusual and it's now being examined by the Investigator .

Their bowling coach Azhar Mahmood, returning to what he describes as his "second home" after several seasons as a Surrey favourite on the pitch, has great belief in a Pakistan team who have already knocked England out of their own tournament at the semi-final stage.

"Pakistan has surprised everyone in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 after being ranked eighth coming into the tournament, and was well and truly beaten in its first match against India".

Like many people, Pathan also believes the Virat Kohli-led India's strength lies in its batting while Pakistan would bank on its superb bowling attack in the summit clash. I am very hopeful of their win especially after the way India have played in the tournament so far.

In-form Indian batsmen Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni have also helped their side look capable enough of chasing any target.

Mueller investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice
But soon after the abrupt termination, Trump told NBC News that he had been going to fire Comey regardless of any recommendations. The special counsel assigned by the DOJ to investigate the White House's involvement with Russian Federation is growing broader.

But the two openers became more convincing and in the 20th over, bowled by Jadeja, reached their 50s from consecutive balls - Fakhar second to the milestone from one delivery fewer when he cut his seventh four straight through the hands of Yuvraj at point.

The bowling department for India under the likes of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin have looked solid bowling economically while providing clinical breakthroughs.

Their hopes now rested largely on the shoulders of Shikhar Dhawan who had been in fine form in the tournament but he made only 21 before nicking the inspired Amir to wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed.

Rubio says best to let Russian Federation probe proceed
Jay Sekulow appeared on NBC's Meet the Press and CNN's State of the Union on Sunday morning to make his case. Trump is under pressure to reveal whether he has any tape recordings of private conversations with Comey.
