I feel pressurized against Pakistan because of the environment in the ground, that’s a whole different feeling. I still remember our game against Pakistan in 2015 WC in Adelaide. My form wasn’t that good during that time, I didn’t play well in Australia series before the World Cup
The dynamic left hand batsman further added that the Indian fans want to win against the arch rivals by any means. He also said that the fans applauded his performance against Pakistan after his knock of 73 valuable runs in the 2015 world cup.
Our first WC game was against Pakistan and when I was walking down at the venue, Pakistan fans were shouting, ‘tu toh 15 runs banake out hojayega.’ I was like ‘oh okay’. And then, I went on to score 73 runs and the same people clapped for me on my way to the pavilion. For Indian fans, Team India should win against Pakistan by any means in ICC events no matter what.
