“We will try to play well and it all depends on how you play on the day, just like we did in the first two matches,” said the top-order batsman referring to Pakistan team’s two wins at the World Cup against Netherlands and Sri Lanka.

Azam further added that he has told his players that Saturday’s clash inside the gigantic Ahmedabad stadium is a “golden opportunity” to write their names into World Cup history. “The India-Pakistan match is a big game, high intensity. Every such game is challenging,” added Babar Azam. “I have told (the players) it’s the best opportunity to perform. It is a big stadium that can accommodate many fans, it’s a golden opportunity for us to perform in front of these fans.” Fingers crossed as we root for Team Pakistan in today’s cricket match.🤞🏽
