Paceman Ishant Sharma has backed India to stick to their gameplan when they face England in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy on Sunday.

Sharma took 3-33 to help India defeat Sri Lanka in the semi-finals on Thursday and he has backed his fellow bowlers to maintain their fine form against the tournament hosts.

"If you are bowling in a good area no batsmen will enjoy playing you," Sharma told reporters. "That is what we have been doing in the last five games and we will do the same thing in the final.

"We have played good cricket until now, we don't need to change anything. We will stick to the patterns and our strengths and we will keep doing the same thing in the final."

India are 1.72 to win the final of the last-ever Champions Trophy, with Sharma 5.00 to be their top bowler, while Virat Kohli is 4.33 to be their top batsman.

Meanwhile, England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler is excited about the opportunity to help his side erase the memory of a Champions Trophy final defeat by the West Indies nine years ago.

Buttler said: "It's great to think I'm going to be a part of it and I'm really excited about it.

"If we perform as well as we did yesterday (Wednesday) and as well as we can do, then we've got a great chance.

"The past is the past and we can't change anything about it. This is a great chance to right those wrongs."
