Virat-Sarfaraz

Indian skipper Virat Kohli was part of the press conference that was held Yesterday along with nine other captains. Kohli was subjected to many questions in the press meet and one of them was asked to him and Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed.

A journalist asked both Virat and Sarfaraz, “All matches are very important but the match against Pakistan is a high-pressure game, how do you look at it?”

Virat Kohli’s answer to the question was, “India-Pakistan is always a very very anticipated match but we keep saying this again and again. If you ask the players it's very different from how the fans look at the game compared to how players play it. Yes, we feel the anticipation, you feel the excitement of the fans when you enter the stadium. But as soon as you step on to the field it's professional, a bowler trying to execute his skills a batsman trying to execute his skills to the best of their potential. For us its another game that you need to win as a team, yes there is pressure because the atmosphere of the stadium is very different but as soon as you get into it at the end of the day its a game of cricket for all of us. I keep saying it again and again but that the truth.”

After which Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed gave a cheeky reply to the journalist. Sarfaraz said, “My answer is also the same (laughs).”

India will start their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5, followed by Australia and New Zealand before playing their arch-rival Pakistan on June 16.
