Men in Blue , Enters into Final

 

In a one-sided second semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy at the Edgbaston Stadium on Thursday India registered a resounding nine-wicket win over Bangladesh, to set up a clash with arch-rivals Pakistan in the final.

After electing to field first, chasing a gettable total of 265 to win, without any trouble ,the defending champions chased down the target by brilliant innings of Rohit Sharma (123 not out off 129 balls) and skipper Virat Kohli (96 not out off 78 balls) with 59 balls to spare.

However, it would not be an easy  final match for the Indian Team to defend their title as they would face a charged-up and equally confident Pakistan, who surprised everyone by beating favourites England in the first semi-final at Cardiff on Wednesday.
