India Have Edge over Others in Champions Trophy 2017

Laxman said that skipper Virat Kohli will be depending on these two bowlers due to their current form and the pace-friendly conditions in England which will host the Champions Trophy from June 1 to 18. Starting as the eighth-ranked side we have now reached sixth. India won both matches.

Intel, which is the Official Innovation Partner for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, says the new bat sensor, called Speculur BatSense, can be mounted on any cricket bat and will be able to measure back-lift, bat speed, and follow through for every stroke a batsman plays.

England will learn from their early collapse in Monday's one-day global defeat to South Africa at Lord's, captain Eoin Morgan said ahead of their Champions Trophy opener against Bangladesh tomorrow.

"This result ensures we go into the Champions Trophy without big heads", Bayliss told BBC's Test Match Special.

Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya - two players who will probably be fighting for a place in the team at the tournament in England and Wales - led the scoring for India with knocks of 94 and 80 not out respectively.

Laxman praised the Indian batsmen for showing the temperament and skills in English conditions. The Group A comprises of England, Australia, New Zealand and Bangladesh while the Group B consists of reigning champions India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa.

England is the bookies' favorite for the trophy, but Bangladesh has beaten England at the last two Cricket World Cups.

USA and British intelligence officials have said that the explosive had a level of sophistication that suggested a larger network. Investigators are now focussing on the terrorist network they believe the 22-year-old Manchester-born suicide bomber was part of.

It sparked laughter during a press briefing at The Oval yesterday, the day before Bangladesh's Champions Trophy opener against hosts England.

"Very pleased. We got what we wanted in both the games".

"I think I always enjoyed playing against Pakistan, but it is very important to respect whatever the government's decision is because it is beyond sport at the moment", Laxman said.

"I have not missed a single India-Pakistan contest since attending my first one in Mohali during the 2011 World Cup", he said.

Regular skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and opener Tamim Iqbal did not feature in the game, but the team will still be asked questions for this horrific display. "You will see a fighting team", he said.

India's pacers helped India maintain the pressure as they reduced 22/6 after just eight overs.
