India v Pakistan - ICC Champions Trophy Final

After close to 50 days of cricketing action in South Africa, India and South Africa meet for the final time at Newlands for the T20 Series decider, the same venue where the first match of India’s long tour was played. Initially when India lost the first two tests, hardly anyone gave India a chance on the tour to perform so well as they eventually did, winning as many as 7 matches out of the 11 they have played so far. With one match to go, India are definitely the happier side going to the decider on Saturday.

On the other hand, South Africa won the Test Series but have rarely posed a threat to India’s fantastic run in the limited overs leg so far. But going into the final T20I, South Africa will have immense confidence in their abilities having chased down 189 successfully in the second T20I at the SuperSport Park, Centurion. In the series decider then, Virat Kohli will want to go back home with two trophies. For JP Duminy-led South Africa, a win in the final will give them boost and zeal after a series in which they have battled injuries to key players and some poor on-field outings.
