Rohit reveals conversations between Pakistan-India cricketers


MELBOURNE: Indian captain Rohit Sharma opened up regarding the conversations between the players of two-arch rivals – India and Pakistan – whenever they come face to face against each other.

The captains of all 16 teams participating in the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, took part in the captains’ day media event on Saturday and discussed the preparations of their respective teams ahead of the mega event.

Pakistan captain Babar Azam and his Indian counterpart were all praise for each other during the event, and brilliantly explained the bond the players of the two teams share, in response to a journalist’s question.

“Rohit Sharma is older than me. I try to take as much experience as possible from him as he has been playing for a long time,” said Babar.

Rohit, on the other hand, asserted that both teams’ players often talk about how are things back home and how the families are.

” We understand the game against Pakistan, but there is no point in talking about it every time and creating that pressure within yourselves,” Rohit said.

“Whenever we meet against the Pakistan players, we met them in the Asia Cup and now… we talk about how are things back home, how the families are. Even our previous generation cricketers also told us the same thing. We just talk about what is going on, how is life and what new car they have bought or they are about to buy,” he added.

It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan will lock horns with arch-rivals India on October 23 in the most-talked clash of the upcoming T20 World Cup.
