Mohammad Rizwan talks about the big game between India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2023. The two teams will play against each other on September 2 in Kandy.
The Asia Cup 2023 is starting on August 30, and cricket fans all over the world are excited about it. The tournament is being held in Sri Lanka and Pakistan, and many top Asian cricket teams will play.
The match between India and Pakistan is special because they are old rivals. This match, happening on September 2 in Kandy, is not just a game; it’s about national pride.
What Mohammad Rizwan Thinks
Before this big match, Pakistan’s cricket player, Mohammad Rizwan, gave his opinion about which team might win. He said both India and Pakistan are good teams. But the team that stays calm under pressure might win.
“In cricket, both India and Pakistan are tough teams. Every team has good and bad points. But in a tense match like this, the player who stays calm and does well will probably help their team win,” Rizwan said in a video by Star Sports.
People are also talking about Pakistan’s recent good performance in a 3-game series against Afghanistan in Sri Lanka. Pakistan did very well in these games, showing they are one of the best teams right now.
Last time in the 2022 Asia Cup, India beat Pakistan. But this year, the game style is different, which could change the results. The last time they played this style of game was in the 2019 World Cup, where India won by 89 runs. This shows how good India is in big tournaments.
