There is a lot of pressure on both sides to perform well. However, Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam on Friday said that the pressure of providing tickets for the high-profile match is greater than the pressure of the match itself. Both the teams will enter the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad with excellent records in this year’s competition and it is expected that an exciting match will be witnessed.
More ticket pressure than match.
Babar Azam said in the pre-match press conference, ‘There is more pressure for match tickets than for the match itself.’ He said, ‘This is not a pressure match for us. We have played against each other many times. We got a lot of support in Hyderabad and we expect the same for Ahmedabad. What matters is that as a team we can give our best performance in both batting and bowling. In these circumstances, the margin of error for the bowlers is minimal.
Experience will help
He said, ‘Experience helps you play better. When I was young I used to get nervous but there are senior players who help you. Pakistan has never defeated India in the ODI World Cup but Babar is not worried about the past and stressed that the team needs to live in the present. Babar said, ‘I think what happened in the past is not important. We want to live in the present. I think we can do well. India-Pakistan match is very exciting. Believe in yourself. I think we have an opportunity to perform well in front of the fans.
Pakistan is missing Naseem Shah
Talking about his plan, Babar said that we plan on the spot because the wicket is different in the first 10 overs and after 10 overs it is different. Therefore, we have to plan accordingly. We will miss Naseem Shah. Shaheen is our best bowler. We believe in him and he believes in himself. One or two matches with poor performance don’t bother us.
Pakistan has defeated India in T20 World Cup
Babar mentioned Pakistan’s T20 World Cup win against India and said that they will repeat it in the ODI World Cup in Ahmedabad. Babar said, ‘In 2021 we defeated India in the T20 World Cup. I think we can do the same here. I have not scored many runs in this World Cup so far and I hope that will change. If you want to perform well then you have to field well. We are working on it.’
