That has given them the chance for revenge against their fierce rivals when they meet for the first time in a global one-day worldwide final at the Oval this Sunday, and Bumrah insists Pakistan will be afforded plenty of respect by India.
India have been dominant against Pakistan in ICC events, with the overall record being 13-2 in favour of India. "They [Pakistan team] should not be flying too high on their success at the moment because we know that they've been "brought" to this position", Sohail said.
It was a classic case of the master giving a lesson to an upstart apprentice as India thrashed Bangladesh by 9-wickets to book a place in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy for the fourth time.
What is the origin of the India-Pakistan cricket rivalry?
Reacting to the allegations of Aamir and Harbhajan Singh, Sourav Ganguly, reacting to the announcement of Ganguly, said this is not the first occasion when that players of the current Pakistani group have been focused by previous Pakistan cricketers. It won't be a shock.
Following the win, Sarfraz said that although no one had expected them to qualify for the finals, they are happy to defy all odds and bounce back from their opening-match defeat to India. Cricket fans are sure that Pakistan, who was sure about India's defeat against Bangladesh, must now be afraid of facing India in the finals.
"If you ask me who has helped win these matches for Sarfraz I will only say God and prayers of people but I will not reveal the names of those helping Sarfraz because of whom matches have been won", he went on.
"What we are going to try to do is repeat the similar sort of cricket that we have played so far, knowing the strengths and weaknesses they have", Kohli said. That's why we're so unpredictable and that's why we have a lot of following. "We played some really good cricket".
"We have guys who have such skill and such an ability that they can perform on any stage". But nation is above everything and we will be playing for victory of India. India refuse to play against us (in Pakistan's adopted home of the United Arab Emirates). It's like the Ashes; it's bigger than the Ashes.
The powerhouses, who clobbered Bangladesh to reach the final of the ICC Champions Trophy in England on Thursday, will be led by batting star Virat Kohli and includes the core of the unit now at the showpiece in London. A back spasm had ruled Amir out of the semi-final against England on June 14, after he failed a fitness test shortly before the toss.
Azhar said: "He bowled without any problem". Kedar Jadhav's introduction was one of the most crucial points in the game as he broke the partnership between Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim and took two important wickets that put breaks on Bangladesh's scoring rate. We'll definitely go with Amir, but we don't mind, if Amir is not playing, then we have Rumman Raees.
