Ahead of the blockbuster match between India and Pakistan, former skipper MS Dhoni shared a frame with Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed’s son Abdullah. India, who have made it to their second edition final on the trot, will hope of repeating their success and lift the Champions Trophy title under Virat Kohli’s captaincy.

Dhoni, who led India in the limited overs for over a decade, will be hoping to lift the trophy for the second time and add another chapter to his cricketing career.

A nice pic ahead of the Champions Trophy finals. @msdhoni with Sarfraz Ahmed baby: sports beyond boundaries!!

Dhoni, who hasn’t got much chance to bat in the ongoing tournament, will play a crucial role with the bat and with the gloves for the defending champions. The right-handed batsman struck a half-century against Sri Lanka. However, his knock of 63 runs was on a losing note as they suffered a seven-wicket defeat to their neighbours. But he has been busy behind the wickets as he has taken three catches in the tournament.

The atmosphere at The Oval during the final of the ICC Champions Trophy will be electrifying and the emotions among the players and the fans will be very high.

The two cricketing nations have not been involved in any bilateral series since 2012, where Pakistan had trounced the hosts 2-1 in the three-match ODI series.

        Media must debate real issue "Natiionalist Modi Bhakts" extremely active on social media to abuse everyone by showing fake solidarity for Soldiers instead of standing shoulder to shoulder with soldiers on boarder"

              Bhai india mein itni toilet hai ki sara pa.kistan with family shift ho kar aram se reh sakta hai If a woman is raped in india and she moves to court she doesn't have to bring 3 witness to court or else be stoned to death. Dna test is ample proof to prosecute the rapist. Atleast no where in indian holy scriptures it is written to drink cow ...hope muslims can say same thing about coca-camel hot drink which is written in hadish. Auur sun bey y rahi baat paise ki to itni hai ki tum jaise bhikario ke jaise dusre desh se bheek nahi mangna parta. Abhi Chinese ne to cpec mein loaned paise ke badle sirf jameen hi liya hai ghabra mat kal jur(immovable) aur joru dono le lenge aur joru ki to khaas kar jam ker lenge.

                Pee of Cow is much much better then to drink blood of your owns. Marrying with four and divorcing by 3 words are not less them rape. Tumari aabadi ko agar likal de then you won't utter such words. As most like you don't like cleanliness.

                  What a lovely photograph! What a lovely gesture on Dhoni's part! This is what sports is about. Our opponents may be from a despicable country but they also are sportspeople.

                      Ask MS Dhoni to go to Kashmir and other front areas first pose for a picture with the children of slain, then brutally mutilated personnel - BY PAKISTAN - of the Indian Armed Forces and Indian Police. India should have the backbone not to play cricket with Pakistan and/or have Pakistani stars act in Bollywood films - when every day, our brave soldiers are giving their lives to protect .... who exactly? The likes of MS Dhoni who then pose for pictures with Pakistani player's kids? Or Salman Khan who just shoots off his mouth calling for dialogue not bullets?? Shame on MSD, shame on Salman Khan, and more shame on the Indian Press for actually glorifying their BS in newspapers and on talk shows on television with other ill-informed, scantily clad bimbos who have never read a history or political science book in their lives! It's a crying disgrace - that our men in uniform actually lay down their lives to protect such people who dishonor them. Daughter of an Indian Air Force Officer
