Addressing a small press conference today, Virat Kohli highlighted the facts which are going to be part of Indian Cricket Team’s performance in the match against Pakistan. Ind v Pak is going to be played on 19th of March at Eden Gardens, Kolkatta.
He said “We would like to focus on our strengths and opposition doesn’t matter so much at this stage obviously we need to understand the strengths and weakness of opposition players. Probably try to execute the same thing which has got us success. Obviously, it’s a big event, whole field and vibe are different from bilateral series, we all have experienced it before, so it is not a big thing. ”
He furthermore stated “We are very confident with the way we have been playing. We have won 10 out of the 11 last games we have played, taking some real momentum into the World Cup,”
Highlighting the fact that opposition team could prove themselves as tough competitors, he said “If you look at both the groups, the teams are adamant and, they are evenly matched. It’s going to be tough, but we would like to focus on our strengths.”
India v Pakistan would be one of the highest on TRP match because of edge to edge competition between the teams. Pakistan has repeatedly faced losing against the Indian team in world cricket. But T20 Matches have proved a positive point for them.
Quoting the important facts to be underlined, Virat Kohli said “In this tournament, coming back from a poor phase is very difficult, so it’s imperative that you start on the right note, on a positive note, and maintain the momentum that we have built up over the last 11-12 matches. We have been able to perform so consistently because we have not thought too far ahead. We have looked to execute our skills in every game, and that’s why we have got results, and we will try not to do anything too different in this tournament, and not look at this tournament in a very different way. That will be our strength.”
