Earlier, India won the toss and opted to bowl against their arch-rivals Pakistan in the high-octane final of the Champions Trophy at the Kennington Oval here on Sunday. After winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that they are not taking Pakistan for granted and are looking forward to put their best foot forward. “Nice and hard wicket. There’s a fresh wicket, even grass covering and we’d like our bowlers to exploit it. Then we like chasing. No matter the conditions, you have to play good cricket. One more effort to go. I’m sure the guys will give it their best shot. If you make the finals, you’ve played really good cricket. We don’t take oppositions for granted and today is no different. No matter what they bring, we are believing in our abilities,” Kohli said. FULL CRICKET UPDATES: India vs Pakistan, ICC Champions Trophy 2017 – Final at The Oval
