"You don't enjoy because you know when you wake up in the morning there's only one team which is going to win, which is India", Ganguly said.

The winners of the game will go through to the semi-finals and the losers will be heading home early, with Ashwin having sat out each of India's two matches at the tournament so far. He can really hurt you, hurt your bowling attack and take the game away from you.

I feel Pakistan should stick to its strengths and play with the same positive approach it displayed against South Africa.

"We've had two, two-and-a-half years of it now, looking for replacements for Dilshan, Mahela and we have some fantastic young players coming through".

"But I'm expecting a big performance from him on Sunday".

Cricket is treated like a religion in India and players are treated not less than gods. "That's the way I like to play, too", said the other of the former.

Among India and South Africa, any team that loses the match today will be out of the tournament. "It would make sense for them to get more spin options in", he added.

South Africa also come into the final fixture on the back of a defeat, against Pakistan on Wednesday, but Kohli warned his team not to underestimate the Proteas.

"It depends on the conditions, really. If it doesn't happen, then so be it".

"With the bowling, India appeared to miss a trick by not playing offie R Ashwin, especially with three left-handers in the Lankan top four". "I thought we bowled pretty well". He is a great bowler.

The Lankans were set a steep 322run target, but their chase, engineered with precision and poise, was one of the most entertaining in recent times.India hit more runs than the Lankans in the first 10 and the last 10 overs, Shikhar Dhawan being the standout performer with a century, and yet India came out on the losing side. But that's up for them to decide.

"But my thinking is also that we haven't actually fired properly as yet, which is a good thing".

Of course, the world loves a headlining double-act, and they've decreed that De Villiers vs Kohli is the most apt.

He's someone who looks forward to the challenges and I think he should play. Lost the last game (versus Pakistan), so that's never ideal for a captain. I understand what I am trying to do out there.

"I think I make some good calls".

Hemant, however, directly held Zainab responsible for the ducks by two skippers, as he said: "The curse of the @ZAbbasOfficial selfie strikes again.Kohli goes for a duck now.Devilliers yesterday #INDvSL #CT17".
