T20 WC 2021, IND vs PAK: In the T20 World Cup 2021, there will be a high-voltage match between India and Pakistan on Sunday. Fans of both the teams are very excited about it. If we look at the previous records, the Indian team seems to have an upper hand. Meanwhile, the statement of Pakistani captain Babar Azam has come to the fore. Babar on Saturday said that his team is not worried about the poor record against India in the World Cup, but is trying to stay cool at present.

Babar said on the eve of the match, “To be honest, we don’t want to focus on the previous matches. We are thinking about this World Cup. We would like to focus on our strength and ability and use it during the match. It is important to keep things simple and stick to the ‘basics’. We will try to play good cricket and get better results.”

Asked if he lost sleep before this big match, Babar said, “We have played a lot of tournaments, we did well in Champions Trophy too. The more we keep it simple, the better. It’s just on the basics. We have to be firm and at the same time have a calm mind. Our preparations are in our hands and we have given our 100 per cent. We look forward to playing good cricket on the day of the match.”

He said, “Sarfaraz is a good player of spin and has good confidence to play against India. But we think he will be our best 11 player for this match. Shoaib Malik plays very well on the front foot and spins. That’s why we have picked him. Definitely Sarfaraz will get a chance in the coming matches.”

Babar Azam said, “The first match in the tournament is always important and we will hope for a good start and carry on this momentum. I have full faith in the combination of my team. We will focus on one match at a time. ” The Pakistan captain took a big decision to give preference to veteran Shoaib Malik, leaving former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed.

The rivalry between India and Pakistan is well known, but Pakistan’s team has never been able to register a win against India on the big stage. They have lost all their 12 matches against India in the T20 and 50-over World Cups. In the ICC T20 World Cup, both the teams will face each other on Sunday. Due to the tension between the two neighboring countries, both the teams do not play bilateral series against each other. The last encounter between the two teams was during the 2019 ODI World Cup match in England.
