New Delhi. India and Pakistan will clash in the Asia Cup on Sunday. This match will be played in Dubai. The last time both the teams met in the T20 World Cup. Even then the match was played in Dubai. In that match, India had to lose by 10 wickets. This was the first time when India lost to Pakistan in the World Cup. However, wo ab biti baat ho gayi hai.
Now the tournament is new and both teams would like to start afresh. There is less than 24 hours left in this match. But, Indian captain Rohit Sharma has not been able to decide the playing-XI yet. He said that he will take a decision regarding the team combination after watching the match between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in Dubai. Because on the same pitch where Sri Lanka and Afghanistan are competing, the match between India and Pakistan will take place on Sunday. In this case, Rohit does not want to open his cards for the playing-XI.
Rohit Sharma said in the press conference before the India-Pakistan match, ‘We have not decided playing XI yet. Today, on the wicket on which the Sri Lanka-Afghanistan match is to be held, we and Pakistan will also compete on the same. We want to see how today’s match plays out. Only after this will decide the playing XI.
Kohli looks in good touch: Rohit
Virat Kohli is making a comeback from the Asia Cup after a month’s break. How is Kohli’s preparation? On the question related to this, Rohit said, ‘It was great to see Virat in the practice session. They are working very hard. If you have come after a month’s break, you are looking fresh. It doesn’t look like they are thinking too much. Looks in good rhythm. We have got three days for practice. In such a situation, our preparation has been very good.
‘It’s okay to talk about mental health’
While answering the question related to Virat being mentally disturbed, Rohit said, ‘Mental health is not just an issue related to Virat. Many players have had to go through this during the era of Corona. It is not easy to stay in the bio-bubble for a long time. Every player has his own way of dealing with it. Virat talked on this, it is good. We talk a lot about mental health within the team.
