New Delhi: Today it was a real bad day for the Indian cricket and a real good day for Pakistani cricket. The Pakistani’s batsman was out in certain point but luck has different thing to do. However this news is not about India loosing the Champions Trophy today, but it is all about the mistakes Kohli made today, which he could have avoided and might be subsequently India would have won the match. The advent of the India-Pakistan bout is at the peak. All eyes are on the moment-changing equation. The slightest mistake in the strategy can be huge on any team.

Virat expressed his confidence in him and he bowled the entire 10 over’s. But in 10 over’s he gave away 70 runs. He did not get a single success.
3. Kedar Jadhav did well in the match against Bangladesh. But in this match the captain remembered him a bit later. The balls were handed over to him in the slog overs. Jadhav gave 7 runs in the 39th over. And in the 43rd over, he took 1 wicket after giving 4 runs. But in the 45th over, Jhadav gave 16 runs. After which he had to be removed from bowling.
