Former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming believes South Africa and England will contest the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final. Fleming also believes that India have the upper hand over Pakistan ahead of their crunch clash and predicted the four semi-finalists as well.

Speaking about the India-Pakistan clash, he said: "India have quality players with experience, whereas Pakistan are probably on the way up. Pakistan are a very talented side, but they are unpredictable.Pakistan are a little inconsistent given the young nature of their side and that’s where India have an edge. India are more settled and played together a lot.

On the favorites for the title, Fleming said: “India are one of the favorites. There are four teams in particular which stand out for me. They are England, South Africa, Australia, and India. They are definitely in the top bracket.”
