Just before the main event of the T20 World Cup Clash in Australia, Team India is all set to take the arch-rivals Pakistan in their first match on October 23rd. Both teams will for sure give their level best, to mark their presence by saying that we are here.
But there is somebody, who feels extra optimistic about the play and says that it doesn’t bother him playing against Pakistan. It is none other than Yuzvendra Chahal of whom we are talking about.
He said while getting interviewed by the news channel Dainik Jagran,
“When you’ve already played against a particular opponent, you don’t worry much when you face them again. However, there is a lot of hype generated by the media and internet ahead of the clash against Pakistan. But for us cricketers this is just like another match and if we think too much pressure certainly builds”
“I’m quite active on internet but I don’t allow myself to get bothered by what is being written out there.”
But on the contrary, he praised the Pakistan team describing them as a good side but in tandem he also added that his team’s focus remains solely on performance and nothing else. In other words, he was trying to say that their focus solely remains on the performance and not the unnecessary hype and attention given to the opponent team, we guess.
In a similar T20 World Cup match last year, when India was facing Pakistan, the Indian team barely made 151 runs for the loss of 7 wickets, credit to Shaheen Afridi. But in chasing down, Babar Azam and Mohammed Rizwan showed some best of their skills and won the match by 10 wickets.
This time the things have changed as Team India has got another captain who is a more fierce cricketer than anybody can imagine, his name is Rohit Sharma. And down the line also if you see, all cricketers are strong headed and perfect in the role.
Let now the time decide!!
