It will be interesting to see which team takes the lead. Before the match, one question that is constantly on everyone’s mind is whether it is possible to play any sports in the rain? It was pouring heavily on Friday night in Melbourne and showers are expected on Sunday. Ahead of the crucial encounter, India captain Rohit Sharma spoke at a press conference on Saturday where he talked about the team’s preparation and what the playing XI squad could look like.

“In hindsight, if you look at it, slinging becomes important when rain threatens. But again, I’ve been hearing about Melbourne weather for a while now, it’s constantly changing. You don’t know what’s going to happen Tomorrow what’s in our control we’ll try to look into it The players know how to manage themselves if the game drops, 10 on reach or 5.

India has not won an ICC title since 2013 when the team won the Champions Cup under the leadership of MS Dhoni. The team then reached the semi-finals of the 2015 FIFA 50 World Cup, the 2016 FIFA World Cup, the final of the 2017 World Cup and the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup. world in 2019.

“I don’t mean pressure, but it’s definitely a challenge for us to come out on top in the ICC tournaments. Yes, we don’t want to show in the ICC tournaments, especially the games. It’s a big game, but I believe the opportunity always comes and we have the opportunity now to come here and do well so I think we’re going to have to focus on certain things to get that right.”

“Yes, it is a challenge to not win the ICC title for nine years, if I am not wrong. The last time we won it was in 2013. It was a challenge for a team like us, there are many high expectations, we were definitely a bit disappointed by that. This tournament gives us a chance to change it and play well. We definitely know we have to play our best cricket to do well at We need to play one game at a time, then move on,” he added.

When asked how he has dealt with the problems since last year’s World Cup, Rohit said: “The most important thing is to give the players freedom, give them the security to do well in competitions. Challenging situations We focus on how to give the players safety without worrying about the outcome These little things matter a lot, in the past year we haven’t focused. “When it comes to results, we want to focus on the little things. We’ve been thinking about how we can play fearlessly. We’ve talked about that in our dressing room.”

Talking about playing for Pakistan, Rohit said: “I don’t want to use this word to pressure, but it is the same. It will never change. I want to take this as a challenge. This Pakistani team is a very challenging team, all the Pakistani teams that I’ve played against from 2007 to 2022, they’re a good team. It’s just, I believe on that particular day, something like that. if you are good enough, you will beat Any opposition. And on the day if you are good you will win and go home. Pakistan played well in last World Cup, they beat us.”

“They played well in the Asian Cup, we also played well. We won the first game, and they won the second. Unfortunately, we were knocked out of the Asian Cup, we didn’t win. in important matches look, they played good cricket and you know their brand of cricket Luckily we played them twice in the Asia Cup, otherwise we wouldn’t have played them at all. So it’s pretty hard to judge how they think.So it’s important to understand what their strengths and weaknesses are.In a World Cup, I don’t think you can’t beat them. low prices on any team,” he added.
