Responding to a question, Khan said that the team plan of Sarfraz-led team green is to send the Indian batsmen back to the pavilion as soon as possible.

"Yes. We have done well in our last few matches against England and we are confident", he said. "I think once you enter the field, players should switch off other things and play", he said.

Root was hopeful his injury was nothing serious after he stumbled awkwardly away from a shot on the leg side.

"We will see how he pulls up tomorrow to see how much he will bowl but I certainly see him bowling", said Morgan, who also confirmed Chris Woakes is available for selection after missing two games in the one-day series against the Proteas. "Umesh Yadav is bowling very well".

"Shami has been the bowler who can deliver with both the old and the new ball".

According to McGrath, India would be the frontrunners in their clash against Pakistan. In the 2nd practise game, Men in Blue put the total of 324 but Bangladesh batting collapsed and India won by 240 runs. "But it all boils down to how you tackle the situation during the match".

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza accepted England were a far better side than the one his team knocked out of the 2015 World Cup but insisted the Tigers had improved too ahead of their Champions Trophy opener. "I have come to a stage where I end up going to India nearly every year and hardly go to Pakistan. India definitely has a chance to win the title".

Therefore it can not be renegotiated based on the request of a single Party (the US), the UNFCCC said in a statement here. President Donald Trump's opposition to the Paris Climate Agreement was apparent from the moment he launched his campaign.

The Champions Trophy kicked off on Thursday, June 1, with England taking on Bangladesh at The Oval, London, and avid cricket fans can get the best cricketing experience with the advent of new technology into the game.

"I have not missed a single India-Pakistan contest since attending my first one in Mohali during the 2011 World Cup".

The Kiwi batting line up is in fine form, having chased down a target of 357 runs on their way to a six-wicket win over Sri Lanka in their last warm-up match against Sri Lanka on May 30.

Former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri had earlier said that the Champions Trophy is only an overdose of cricket for the audience and equally hard on the players.

Shastri also heaped praise on opener Shikhar Dhawan, who scored 40 and 60 in India's warm-up matches against New Zealand and Bangladesh, respectively.

The top two teams in each group will go through to the semi-finals followed by the final, also at the Oval, on 18 June.
