"I haven't won one before so it's obviously a big desire, purely because I've shifted my focus to these types of tournaments that I haven't won before". Dhoni thus became only Indian captain to lift all three ICC trophy. "So aiming for sometime in August for a comeback, probably can make a comeback for the Sri Lanka series", Rahul told the Indian Express.

In October 2000, Fleming led the group of Kiwis to their first ever major worldwide victory, when they defeated India to win the ICC Knockout Trophy in Kenya to win their first ever major competition.

The 25-year-old acknowledged that the injury has plagued him not just physically but also mentally.

Missing on the big opportunities, the young batsman said, "It could have been a big moment in my career, I was looking forward to play in the Champions Trophy".

"The results are important but we will also be giving the players some game time leading into the tournament. I'm not too anxious about it honestly, I'm really excited to move forward, I'm hitting the ball as well as ever so I think there are some big scores to come". "I will take care of my recovery and come back stronger", he pointed out. I think we have been playing good cricket over the last few years.

The 8th edition of Champions trophy will kick off at 1st June and final will be held at 17th June at The Oval. Whereas the teams in group B are - Sri Lanka, South Africa, India and Pakistan.

The Tigers have fond memories of their last encounter against England in a major tournament, winning by 15 runs in a 2015 ICC World Cup group stage match. They came well-prepared and were a strong unit.
