Indian Skipper Virat Kohli has criticised the team's fielding against Pakistan in their Group B match of the Champions Trophy cricket tournament here. Kohli, who on Saturday had dismissed reports of a rift with India coach Anil Kumble, was equally contemptuous of Pakistan's attack during a blistering innings of 81 not out off just 68 balls that included six fours and three sixes. They have not lost to Pakistan since the Asia Cup in March 2014 and are now locked at 2-2 in their head-to-head count at the 50-over Champions Trophy.
"In the pre-match meeting, it was decided that Pakistan would opt to bat first if Sarfraz won the toss".
"We didn't take opportunities and they made us pay for it", Arthursaid.
In the post match presentation, Kohli said,"With bat and ball we were nine out of 10, in the field we were six today. Strangely though, Sarfraz handed the other new ball to Imad Wasim despite the overcast conditions", he wrote. And Yuvi came in and just took all the pressure off me.
From superwoman to Wonder Woman
The main problem with " Wonder Woman " is that, aside from its powerhouse lead character, we've seen nearly all of this before. Diana was depicted as a nebbishly girl whose prickly mother anxious she was going to become an old maid.
China vows to stick to Paris climate deal
French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday categorically ruled out any renegotiation of the Paris climate accord and said U.S. Mark Warner, also a Democrat, called the decision "a historic mistake" that will undermine America's position in the world.
Lebanese ministry calls for ban of Wonder Woman movie
One of the key villains in this Friday's Wonder Woman is that of General Ludendorff, brought to life by Danny Huston. And I think that it's an important movie not only for women and girls, but it's also great for boys and men.
Mohammad Amir's first over: It was a fabulous piece of fast bowling by the Pakistani but was unlucky not to induce an edge from Rohit Sharma.
Kohli was also all praise for the openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma.
"It's a total insult to say we're playing even worse", he said.
Chasing a revised target of 289 in 41 overs, Pakistan batsmen had been troubled throughout the innings by the Indian bowlers.
Yuvraj Singh is dropped by Pakistan'sHasan Ali (not pictured) during ICC match. Unfortunately though a poor game plan and shoddy execution, besides abysmal fielding, nullified the advantage.
An exasperated Arthur could barely hide his disappointment with his players, who floundered in nearly every aspect of the game. Pakistan did travel to India for a limited-overs series at the end of 2012, but it is a far cry from the early years of this century, when there were four series in just over four years.
"I felt like a club batter in front of Yuvi". The senior lot failed to cope with the increasing run-rate and got out after occupying the crease for long but barren durations.
