“Credit to Pakistan they turned around things very well for themselves and have beaten sides that look really strong against them but the beliefs just showed on the field, the way they played together as a team.” Kohli added, “Regardless of who you play in the finals its always going to be challenging because once you start thinking that it’s a big game then your mindset changes.
