New Delhi, (16/6/2019): In the ICC World Cup 2019, the cricket rivals India and Pakistan will be face-to-face today. Team India will be hoping to beat Pak for the seventh time in a World Cup match. India has an unbeatable record against Pak in the World Cup till now.
Ten News team reached to Delhiites to know about how high their Josh is today, while supporting the Indian cricket team.
While talking to Ten News a group of young boys talked about the factors which will help India today in winning the match.
They said, “at first we are praying that the rain does not interrupt the match and stops the winning record of India against Pakistan. We have a complete team, from Rohit & Virat to Bumrah & Bhuvi. We want Kohli to score a century because in the last two matches both the openers had scored a century. Now its time for Kohli to show Pakistan that who is the best”.
When asked about the loss of Shikhar Dhawan due to fracture in his thumb, they said, “Shikhar’s loss will affect the opening as he always performs good in the ICC tournaments but we have trust in KL Rahul too, he will definitely fullfil the need of Shikhar Dhawan”.
About the bowling attack they said, “Bumrah and Bhuvi are the masters of bowling in this generation but we want that in this match Mohammad Shami should get a chance as he is very fine swing bowler. And our spinners will surely stay ahead of Pakistan batting line up”.
Meanwhile, the winner of two times, India has so far faced the opponent Pakistan six times in the World Cup and every time the Indian team has got success. India won the World Cup in 1983 and 2011 while Pakistan won the title in 1992. There was no match between India and Pakistan in 1975, 1979, 1983, 1987. For the first time, both teams clashed in 1992 and the series of victory for India against their neighbors continued till today.
BBC and SKY are predicting tomorrow’s Pakistan vs India match to have more viewers than the FIFA World Cup final between France and Croatia which had 1.6 billion viewers. Truly the biggest rivalry in Sports history. We are hoping for a scintillating contest if rain doesn’t spoils the party.
