Mumbai: While Indian cricket team fans are still keenly waiting for more updates on what’s transpiring between coach Anil Kumble and skipper Virat Kohli, the attention will be back to on-field action as the arch-rivals, after facing off in their opening game, will square off for one more time in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in the tournament finale at The Oval on Sunday.
