India plays against New Zealand today at the Oval in London in a warm up match with Yuvraj Singh missing from the scene due to viral fever but MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have taken gauntlet to win the match close on the heels of rigorous IPL season.
As the defending champion of Championship Trophy, India have greater expectations both on home front and in the eyes of international cricket stalwarts. Its successive wins in series against New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia from September 2016 to March 2017 gives the team the required confidence to prove their mettle today.

The captaincy of Dhoni won 2013 trophy while Virat Kohli will be under radar now to lead India again to the finals at least. His win with the 2-1 score against England at home in the ODI and the subsequent T20I series should help him strategize the rearing win at the Champions Trophy 2017.Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav should keep up the pace.
