“Look, it is always exciting to play against Pakistan and it is always a pressure match, so of course it is going to be, you know, a high-intensity match. But to be honest, we haven’t really thought about it, how it is going to be because we have got a lot of cricket left, we have got matches in Sri Lanka, of course, Test matches in England and then IPL and then World Cup. But once of course, the IPL gets over, we will start thinking about that (World Cup).” Bhuvneshwar Kumar said at a virtual press conference.
The experience that some players carry beneath their belts is often useful for the team in these high-pressure situations. Since they have experienced these difficulties before, they can fearlessly take up the upcoming circumstances. Gautam Gambhir, who participated in numerous meetings between India and Pakistan stated that the skilled professionals on one side have an important role to play in the T20 World Cup.
“It is the responsibility of the senior guys to probably keep the younger guys calm because ultimately it’s not the emotion that will win you a game of cricket, it is the contest between the bat and the ball that will end up winning you a game of cricket. So people like Virat Kohli for example, or Rohit Sharma will have a huge responsibility when Indian takes on Pakistan,” Gambhir said on Star Sports’ show ‘ICC T20 World Cup Special’
