Pakistan vs India final Champions trophy

Sunday will be a unique day in the sports history of India and Pakistan.

Half a billion? One billion? Even more? Such are the grandiose predictions about viewing figures for India's meeting with Pakistan in the final of the 2017 Champions Trophy.
This is the first major final between India and Pakistan since 2007, when India beat Pakistan in the World T20 tournament.
India and Pakistan will meet in the final of the Champions Trophy, a major global cricket tournament, on Sunday, June 18. The match is being played at The Oval cricket ground in London and will begin at 3:30..
While the premier tournament in one-day cricket is the World Cup, the Champions Trophy is the second most prestigious because it features the top eight teams in the world. It is held every four years; this is the eighth edition.
India came into the finals after beating Bangladesh by 9 wickets in the semi-final while Pakistan thumped England by 8 wickets.
It is interesting that so far in the history of the Champions Trophy, when pitted against each other, both teams have won two matches each. India of course beat Pakistan in the one game that these two teams played against each other earlier in the tournament this year.
