T20 World Cup: Babar Azam ready to beat India

Babar Azam, Pakistan’s captain is eager to kick-start the team’s T20 World Cup campaign with a victory versus the arch-rivals, India. In a virtual press conference held on Wednesday, the skipper added the team is planning to handle the pressure against Virat Kohli chaps.

He urged that Pakistan’s match with India has different pressure and intensity built over years. He has termed Pakistan vs India as an all-important clash. Notably, the two teams will meet each other on 24th October 2021. They now only see each other in ICC or ACC events and have not met in a bilateral series since 2012.

“We should focus on our all-important clash against India and bring plans to handle the pressure against India as well as other important matches so we can lift this year’s world cup trophy,” he said.

The green shirts’ captain further added that the Pakistan Cricket Team, to give their best in the T20 World Cup, has started playing intra squad practice matches.

“We are giving our best short in preparing ourselves for the mega-event as we are playing practice matches.”

It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan and India met last in an ICC event in World Cup 2019. Kohli and men overpowered Sarfaraz Ahmed and co by every means. Now, the Babar Azam-led side will be looking to revenge the past defeats.

Furthermore, the men in green have only beaten India once in the T20 World Cup history of six years whereas, India have a long list of accomplishments versus Pakistan in the event.

Moreover, as the International Cricket Council (ICC) revealed warm-up matches schedule for the teams, the men in green are scheduled to play their encounters versus West Indies and South Africa on 18th and 20th October respectively at Dubai, Abu Dhabi cricket stadiums.
