How many possibilities of a pinnacle clash in the final?

On the contrary, Sri Lanka is not easy to convince; in fact, India would have known if SL had beaten them in a 2017 Champions Trophy match, while Afghanistan is a tough team, and Bangladesh has been able to beat top teams time and time again. But in ICC events, India takes their game to the next level, so the chance of them or Pakistan losing to other teams is a bit of a stretch in theory. 

As there is no semi-final in the format, with only the Super 4 deciding the finalists, the top two teams after the round will play the pinnacle clash on September 11, which is expected to be between India and Pakistan.

This was a scenario that is certainly believed to be true. Now let’s move on to the second possibility, which will not be easy. In their current form, India and Pakistan are two of the strongest teams in the world. Despite stiff competition from top teams like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan, Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam’s units are expected to be better than they. The tournament was last played in this format in 2014 when India emerged victorious. Pakistan will be looking to avenge its loss against India in the final of that tournament.
