Well this escalated quickly.
If it rains in Champions Trophy finals, the winner will be declared by having a singing competition between Taher Shah & Dhinchak Pooja.

It is only moment before the match is about to begin as fans of the teams wait with bated breath. Statistics say that Pakistan have never defeated India in the ICC Champions Trophy, but as they say, you never know in sports. As the countdown is about to end, India has won the toss and has decided to field first. And if the loud roar on the field is anything to go by, we already know who is the favourite today. For now we can only wait and watch.
