BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — India has won the toss and chosen to field first in its Champions Trophy match against Pakistan at Edgbaston.

With India already having won Group B — and Pakistan eliminated — local bragging rights are the main thing at stake on Saturday in one of the most hostile rivalries in world cricket.

Asad Shafiq replaces Imran Farhat for Pakistan, which has lost both its group games, while India is unchanged after wins over South Africa and West Indies.
