Pakistan wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan has given a big reaction to the matches between India and Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. Rizwan has said that looking at the way the last few matches have happened, it can be said that now there is not much difference between the two teams.
In fact, in the recent matches, Pakistan’s team has been dominating over India. Till now, Team India was unbeaten against Pakistan in the World Cup, but for the first time in the T20 World Cup held last year, Pakistan defeated India. At the same time, in the Asia Cup this year also, Pakistan defeated the Indian team. Overall, Pakistan has defeated the Indian team twice out of the last three matches.
India-Pakistan match is very important for us – Mohammad Rizwan
This is the reason why Rizwan feels that both the teams are equal. He said about the India-Pakistan match,
Of course, the competition between India and Pakistan is a pressure one and that’s why I try to keep things simple. The kind of matches that have happened in the last one year, I don’t think there will be much difference. Yes it is a World Cup match and it is important for us.
Earlier, Rameez Raja had also said that India no longer takes Pakistan lightly. They said,
It is more of a mental match than skill and talent. So if your temper is strong and you are mentally focused and not ready to give up, then even a small team can become a big team. Pakistan has always been the underdog whenever India has faced competition. However, now India has started giving respect to Pakistan because they know that Pakistan can defeat us anytime.
