‘PM Imran Khan spoke to the team about the 1992 World Cup victory’: Babar Azam ahead of India clash
Ahead of the iconic clash against India in their 20-20 World Cup opener, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has revealed that PM Imran Khan had shared his valuable inputs with the team about Pakistan’s win in the 1992 50-over World Cup. Pakistan, against all odds, went on to win the title, beating England in the final. They had a shaky start to their campaign and at one stage needed to win all their games to qualify for the semi-finals. They did so and then went on to win both their knockouts games to get their hands on the title. Check our newest cricket betting odds here in our website.
“Before coming, we had a meeting and in that he (Imran) had shared his experience, about what was his mindset in the 1992 World Cup, what was his and the team’s body language,” Babar said on the eve of his team’s clash against arch-rivals India.
There is no bigger game than an India-Pakistan clash in cricket, especially with the emotional attachment of the fans. The two arch-rivals do not play bilateral series and only face each other in world events and Asia Cup. Unfortunately for Pakistan, they have not tasted any success against the Men in Blue in world events, having lost all their 12 battles ( including 50-over World Cups as well). Babar though is confident that Pakistan can turn things around in the coming game owing to their experience of playing in UAE. Pakistan have used UAE as their home ground for over a decade and boast of a decent record in the country.
“We know the conditions really well,” Pakistan captain Babar Azam told a pre-tournament news conference. “We know how the wicket will behave and the adjustments batters will have to make.
“On the day whoever plays the better cricket, wins the match. If you ask me, we will win.”
