‘Pakistan Will Feel Burden Against India’: Sehwag

Virender Sehwag’s observations about the India-Pakistan matches in the ODI World Cup and the handling of pressure are quite interesting. He pointed out that Pakistan used to handle pressure situations well in the past but believes that India has now become more adept at handling pressure, which is reflected in their superior head-to-head record against Pakistan in ODI World Cup matches.

Sehwag mentioned that India’s ability to handle pressure has improved over the years, while Pakistan may feel the burden of not having won against India in the World Cup. He acknowledged that both teams feel the pressure in India-Pakistan matches, despite athletes often claiming otherwise. The emotions surrounding these high-stakes games are intense, and the players are aware of the significance.

Sehwag also drew a parallel between his own experience and the current scenario, mentioning that during his playing days, the Indian team played the World Cup for Sachin Tendulkar, hoping to give him a memorable farewell by winning the tournament. Similarly, Sehwag believes that the Indian cricketers will be motivated to win the World Cup for Virat Kohli, who is regarded as a star batsman and a key figure in the team. He stated that Kohli always gives his all, and everyone is rooting for him to lift the World Cup.

It will be intriguing to see how the India-Pakistan match unfolds in the ICC World Cup 2023 and whether India can maintain their flawless record against Pakistan in World Cup encounters or if Pakistan can turn the tables and secure their first victory.
