ICC Champions Trophy warm-up: Kohli, pacers script India's victory over New Zealand

Johnnie Parks | 29 May, 2017, 08:41

Another gain for India was captain Virat Kohli finding form with a half-century after a dismal stretch with the bat in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament. You take a lot away from failures which is what I have always cherished. Having punched Adam Milne to the straight boundary, Kohli repeated the stroke against Southee and then cut him for another four to swiftly move into the 20s.

"We operate on advice from our Tournament Security Directorate - in conjunction with the European Central Bank and relevant authorities - to ensure that we have a robust safety and security plan for both tournaments", cricket's world governing body said in a statement.

While he feels that the Champions Trophy final could become a limited overs "Ashes" rivalry between England and Australia, he won't mind an India versus Australia summit showdown. And that hurt me personally as I felt I wasn't able to contribute for the team.

In 2004, they reduced the West Indies to 147 for eight chasing 218 only to suffer a two-wicket defeat. Expect high-quality, aggressive cricket from the boys in the blue, with Virat Kohli leading an explosive team that is more than capable of securing back-to-back Champions Trophy wins.

Although Shami played 10 Tests and the IPL, there was a question over his fitness. "In Australian conditions, as the pitches are generally true and you can go at the ball and hit through the line", Hussey observed. From Quinton de Kock to Dwaine Pretorius, South Africa have run machines ready to go at all times.

"The first challenge is not to think about the fact that we are defending the title".

India were well on course of a comfortable victory reaching 129 for 3 in 26 overs in pursuit of 190 against New Zealand in the opening warm-up game, when rain stopped play.

Dinesh Karthik, was a late replacement in the squad for the injured Manish Pandey and only playing because Yuvraj Singh was unwell, came out at No. 4 but was dismissed for nought after facing nine deliveries.

"But we haven't been on the park together at the same time for Australia". Rohit is set to feature in the second warm-up match against Bangladesh on Tuesday.

"I have been watching their videos and have prepared myself to face them too", he added.
