Former Australia left-hander Michael Hussey feels that although India are hot favourites to retain the ICC Champions Trophy, Pakistan cannot be discounted as they have a feeling of "destiny" with them.

"India is in a great place and must be favoured to retain the Champions Trophy but no one should discount Pakistan. It is a mercurial team and this tournament has thrown up so many upsets so far," Hussey wrote in a column for the official website of the ICC.
