“We have a very capable and experienced team that can handle pressure. Virat always like challenges and enjoys playing and scoring against Pakistan. In the T20 world cup, it’s has been a record so far that Pakistan has not been able to dismiss him,” Rajkumar Sharma told ANI.
Meanwhile, former India cricketer Kirti Azad also shared his views regarding much-awaited game.
“Who will win and lose in today’s game? It is difficult to say; but according to the current team, India will win today’s match. Indian players have been defeating Pakistan in most of the matches even before this,” said Kirti Azad.
“The Indian players have an extra advantage of knowing the Dubai pitch better, as they have just played the Indian Premier League, which will give them an upper hand in the game,” he added.
Cricketer Bhuvaneshwar Kumar’s childhood coach Sanjay Rastogi is also hopeful of India winning their opener against Pakistan.
“I am really excited about today’s match and hopeful, and Bhuvaneshwar will perform well and lead Team India to a win,” said his coach.
The stakes are at an all-time high with Kohli and Co. looking to continue their dominance against Pakistan in ICC World Cups. Both sides have strong line-ups and it will be about keeping calm and rising to the occasion when they players set foot on the pitch on Sunday.
