Aamer Sohail accuses Pakistan team of match-fixing in Champions Trophy

We have to win this match at any cost.

"We were written off totally, and probably rightly so, after the Indian clash because we were shambolic".

And the coach has praised rookie captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who during this tournament has doubled his tally of matches as skipper from four to eight, for backing his bowlers. After a tough time in the IPL with the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Kohli is back to his best and will be hoping to guide India to their second Champions Trophy title. But maybe from the ball we have been six, seven runs short. "Losing those two wickets to an occasional bowler obviously didn't help". I know I am just asking you considering that this dressing room looks up to you. I am really enjoying the way I am batting. "Whatever my team wants me to do, I should be able to do that for them". Or you could take a cheeky punt on Azhar Ali, now 148 runs behind Dhawan at the top of the tree, to pull off something special at 150/1. If you do something correct, we will appreciate you. But the left-hander did capitalize later as he smashed 84 against Australia in the very first innings where he got a chance to serve the team with his willow. So that's the way it doesn't work. But you can't predict anything in this game.

Rohit suffered his injury during the home ODIs against New Zealand in October past year, and missed home series against England, Bangladesh and Australia. Everybody was extremely excited about it.

"You can't predict anything".

MASHRAFE MORTAZA: Well, you have to. We are not going to take anything for granted for sure. "And if you are in that position, I guess you could do that, push Pandya or Jadhav ahead of even Yuvraj and Dhoni and have a crack". But once we lose wickets in the middle patches, it becomes hard.

"We will congratulate you when you play well but we'll also criticise you when you don't. However, I said nothing about match-fixing or any other foul play - my statement was misunderstood", the Dawn quoted Sohail, as saying. Just keep quiet and play cricket. "We needed to have a clean, collective game. It was a lovely wicket to bat on, and the outfield was quick, so I think it was great conditions to bat today, and as batsmen you do want to capitalise". I alone supported Sarfraz since 2015 and recommended him for taking on the captaincy of the Pakistan team. Obviously to reach the finals you have to play some good cricket.

On Sunday, June 18, India will be playing finals against Pakistan at Kennington Oval, London. It's always a hard match. They have really been remarkable.

He expects that the youngsters would step up and not depend on players like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah all the time. The Pakistan keeper has just had two showings with the bat and in one of them, he hit 61.

"One of the nice things about Hasan Ali is the length that he bowls.He pitches the ball up, he gets people to drive and I think that's one of the reasons, in these kind of conditions, he takes wickets". But again, it depends on both, what the mindset was there. Yes, we are coming up still.

"We have to learn a bit more, how to stop runs on that sort of wicket". I know once you are ready mentally, anything can be possible.
