“For now we are all very excited as players. We always look forward to this India versus Pakistan clash. It will be a good challenge for us to compete against a big team like Pakistan. As we all know there is a huge history and rivalry between India and Pakistan as these games are always been high intensity. It’s a great opportunity for us to challenge ourselves,” said Rahul said at a press conference.
Last year, in their 13th attempt in World Cups, Pakistan defeated India in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup after Shaheen Shah Afridi destroyed India’s top order.
On India’s defeat to their arch-rivals in the last T20 World Cup, Rahul said,” Yes obviously losing any game and in the World Cup hurts. When you enter big tournaments every team wants to play big and unfortunately, it did not happen with us. We were outplayed by really strong Pakistan. So now we get an opportunity to play once again against them.”
“We are looking forward to going all out there and playing our best game…… the match starts from zero… There might be a history of how many times the teams played against each other and won but it does not matter as the game only starts from zero. It’s great to see the new approach of the Indian team, started after the last world cup,” Rahul added.
