Virat Kohli confident of India doing well under pressure against South Africa

Virat Kohli says India will thrive under pressure in their make or break Champions Trophy clash with South Africa on Sunday.

After slumping to a shock defeat against Sri Lanka on Thursday, title-holders India must win their final Group B fixture at The Oval to avoid an embarrassing exit.

Although he is well aware of the criticism that would come with elimination at the group stage, India captain Kohli is remaining upbeat and he called on his players to embrace the high-stakes nature of their showdown with South Africa.

"It's become very exciting. Every game is effectively a quarter-final now," Kohli said. "In our group especially, all teams are on two points, and you have to win your next game to go through, which is an exciting position to be in for all teams. It's a great scenario where you literally have two matches now which are going to be even more competitive cricket."
