T20 World Cup 2022 is almost at the knockout stages, with only a few group games left to play. India is one of the top contenders in Group 2 to make it to the semi-finals of the tournament. They are currently sitting at the top with six points in four games. They have won three games, and their only loss came against South Africa. However, they still need to win their last group match to make it to the semis.

The Men in Blue will lock horns against Zimbabwe on Sunday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. And they can’t take the opposition lightly because Zimbabwe has already beaten Pakistan in their group game. Thus, anything is possible. Although the Zimbabwe captain believes that it will not be easy for his team because India is in good form.

In a press conference ahead of the game, Zimbabwe captain Craig Ervine addressed the media. He discussed the plans of his team and how they would tackle Virat Kohli. Ervine said that it is a great chance for his team to bowl to some of the best batters in the world. He also stated that if they can keep Virat quiet, it will be a good achievement. Ervine said.

“Yeah, definitely. This is a great opportunity to bowl against some of the best guys in the world, so there’s no reason why guys would not want to actually get out there and produce the goods. How often do you get the opportunity to put Virat Kohli in your pocket? I don’t think we have any plans against Virat. I think he’s just too good a player.”

Furthermore, he added that it is all about handling the pressure and bowling in the right area. If the bowlers can bowl good line and length, they can challenge anyone. Zimbabwe is currently in fifth place with three points. They won the game against Pakistan, and one of their games against South Africa was rained out. On the other hand, if Zimbabwe beats India, there will be a small chance for Pakistan to make it to the semis.
