The 15 matches of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, to be held from June 1-18, will be played at three venues – The Oval in London, Edgbaston in Birmingham and the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff, Wales.
Although there are too many teams that will compete with each other in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy this June, the fiery thirst of the audience still longs for the match between the Men in Blue and the Green Shirts. Even in Canada and the whole of Europe, this match is the main course.
India, as the defending champions of the game is still the crowd’s favoured team to win this year’s ICC Champions Trophy. Happening this 4th of June, this event is going to be a great and satisfying treat over the weekend for the Cricket fans, and will be broadcasted live in Canada and Europe through Yupptv.
The Men in Blue
Team India is still currently the third best in the world and possesses one of the best squads who is more than capable of making their way to their second trophy, as many editions of the tournament. When it comes to pace attacking, there’s no stopping India’s Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah (got 26 and 20 wickets respectively) on the recently concluded IPL. Not to mention Kholi who led his team in winning 16 out of 20 matches played in One-Day Internationals. To top it all off, India’s fielders Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya will definitely be a strong backbone.
The Green Shirts
Pakistan team chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq is not to be treated lightly, though. Pakistan’s aim is not just to beat India, but to actually win the championships, said the confident Inzy. He remembered how they defeated India on the same venue in 2004,Having completed a Test series versus the West Indies in the Carribean, this victory gave their team a great morale boost in winning the match. The Green Shirts have many good players at their disposal but what would be a big setback for Pakistan is the presence of a immense player in the team. Shahid Afridi, carried the tag of the vast thespian, who seldom delivers. These new and young Pakistan players can change the definition of a big player for this team in this tournament.
As exciting as it is, this year’s favorite rivalry match is definitely as must watch. Watch it stream live in Canada and Europe on June 4 via YuppTV.
