Superstition and Indian cricket go a long way back. So take a minute, and read the reasons why cricket-crazy Indian fans think Captain Kohli will lift the Champions Trophy this Sunday!

Note: India’s first match in the 2007 World T20 was against Scotland but it was washed out without a ball being bowled. So the first time India took the field was against Pakistan, just like in this year’s Champions Trophy.

2017: A Repeat of 2013?

MS Dhoni led India to victory in the Champions Trophy final in 2013. It took another four years for the Champions Trophy to make a comeback in international cricket. When it did, India are in the finals yet again.

The captaincy has changed hands. But there’s a lot that is still the same.
