ICC Champions Trophy Final

Will the match be affected by rain? Check the weather forecast.

After beating South Africa by seven wickets in their semi-final match at The Oval, England will face India in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy on 23 June. The final will be held at Edgbaston, where England kicked off this year's campaign in their first match against Australia. England will be hoping to improve on their last Champions trophy final performance in 2004, when they were beaten by the West Indies at The Oval by two wickets.

England's excellent semi-final performance was helped by a dry pitch, which provided perfect conditions for their bowlers, who bowled South Africa out for only 175 runs. England's Trott was unbeaten on 82. India and Sri Lanka were joint winners of the ICC Champions Trophy when the tournament was held in Sri Lanka in 2002.

Check the forecast for Edgbaston before heading to the match.
