New Delhi: Former Indian captain Rahul Dravid advised Virat Kohli to keep the first eleven for champions trophy final unchanged against Pakistan. Previously India lost a group stage match against Sri Lanka. After that captain Kohli used two spinners instead of three pacers.
Pacer Umesh Yadav was replaced by India’s best spinner Ravichandran Ashwin against South Africa and Bangladesh in the semi finals to confirm the ticket to the finals.
Based on the current form of the team Dravid said the boys are more comfortable in chasing the score which has been clearly displayed in this year’s champions trophy as the country has one of the strongest batting line up in the tournament.
Hence, Dravid advised to keep the team unchanged and chase runs in the second innings of the final at Edgbaston.
