The biggest encounter of the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 will be between the eternal rivals, Pakistan and India and with the recent political tensions escalating between the two neighbours, many are describing this as a mini-war between the two.
However, Pakistan’s captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed has played down the hype and has mentioned that every game of the World Cup will be crucial for Pakistan.
“For us, all nine matches are important so we will take every match as a match against India,” Sarfaraz said. Pakistan has never got the better off India in World Cup clashes, losing on all previous six occasions.
However, with the historic win in the Champions Trophy final against India, the Green Shirts would be hoping to continue the good record in the ICC tournament. The high-voltage clash between arch-rivals Pakistan and India will take place on 16th June at Manchester.
