“Have Started to Give Pakistan Respect of Late”: PCB Chief Ramiz Raja on Team India

Team India has Begun to Respect Pakistan According to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Ramiz Raja:

PCB Chief on Team India: The world is anticipating the T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan on October 23 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The anticipation for this match was so high that tickets were sold out a month before the tournament began. Pakistan has recently put on some memorable performances against India, and they even broke India’s World Cup jinx by defeating them in the T20 World Cup last year in the UAE. 

Ramiz Raza, PCB Chief took note of the performance and quoted that team India has begun to respect Pakistan. Also, Babar Azam should be commended for his performance and fight in the last match.

“These games are more about mental toughness than skill and talent. Small teams can beat big teams if they have a never-say-die attitude. In the world cup games against India, Pakistan is always considered the underdog. However, they have recently begun to respect us. They previously believed that Pakistan could not defeat them “Raja stated to Dawn News. 

“As a result, we should give credit to the current Pakistan team. We triumphed over a billion-dollar cricket industry. I’ve played in World Cups, but we never beat India. This group did a commendable job. Despite our limited resources, we are fighting them hard “He continued. 

India and Pakistan had previously met in the Asia Cup on two occasions. In the group stage, India defeated Pakistan, while the latter won the Super 4 stage.

Looking towards the coming event in Australia the ICC T20 World Cup India and Pakistan will rub shoulders in the super 12 part of the format. The two of the favorite rivals will face each other. The match will be held at The Melbourne Cricket Ground on 23rd October.
