The war of words has already started between India and Pakistan team, who face each other in the Champions Trophy final. This time, the battle has been initiated by the Pakistani pacer Amir, who targeted Kohli by saying that he will be under pressure because it's his first big final as a captain.

Pakistan will play arch-rivals India in a bid to win their first ever Champions Trophy title in their history on Sunday at the Oval in London. Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir, who was ruled out of the semi-final against England due to a back spasm, is expected to make a comeback in the final of the tournament. And Amir jumped into action before the big match as he started the mind games by targeting the Indian cricket captain.

"The India team relies on Virat Kohli and he will be under pressure because it's his first big tournament final as a captain. There's no doubt that his wicket will give us an advantage," Amir said as quoted by NDTV Sports.

Till now, the Indian skipper scored 253 runs in this tournament leading the Blue brigade from the front. And, Pakistan will have to worry about more than just Kohli. Before the tournament started, India was worried about the opening pair but Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan played their role perfectly. Yuvraj Singh, the former Indian captain MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya give further strength to the batting line-up.

On the other hand, star player Kohli praised Pakistan team when they entered in the final, "The turnaround has been magnificent. They've beaten sides that looked really strong against them."

He also showed confidence in his own team by saying "I don't know there's much that we need to change." Most probably, India is expected to play with the same team in the final clash.
