A day before title-holders India face Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final at London's Oval ground, the BJP chief Amit Shah today said India can not stop playing Pakistan in worldwide tournaments, but made it clear that the two countries will not play each other on Indian or Pakistani soil.

"Green shirts must bat first and put up a good total on board and then tackle India with their strong bowling because it has emerged as our strength in this tournament", said Khan.

The Paisley-based playcaller added: "We know where we need to improve and we will".

The two sides met the group stage on June 4 (Sunday) where Virat Kohli's "Men in Blue" won by 124 runs via the Duckworth/Lewis method.

The Pakistani captain had revealed that he is a great admirer of Dhoni.

Reacting to Sarfraz's match-winning knock against Sri Lanka that helped Pakistan seal a semi-final berth against England, whom they overpowered easily on Wednesday, Aamir didn't sound too pleased and said that external factors were the reason behind Pakistan's passage to the final.

"They are ranked higher than us - so everyone is talking about India, India".

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Amit Shah on Saturday categorically stated that India and Pakistan will not feature in any bilateral cricket series but would continue to participate in worldwide tournaments.

After a gap of 10 years, arch rivals India and Pakistan face off in an ICC tournament final. Most recently, the ex-Indian batsman was trolled on micro-blogging site Twitter for his obnoxious tweets regarding Pakistan.

"No one gave us a hope when we got here".

"Nobody recognised us, nobody thought we'll qualify for the final.Credit to the team and the team management for how we came back after the loss to India", he said.
