India’s wicketkeeper-batter, Rishabh Pant, seemed excited as the team gears up for the high-voltage clash versus Pakistan looming on June 9th.

Team India, fresh off a dominant performance in their warm-up match, is set to begin their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign against Ireland at the Nassau County Stadium in New York on Wednesday. However, all eyes are on the marquee clash between India and arch-rivals Pakistan, scheduled for June 9th at the same venue.

Wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant acknowledged the unique pressure associated with the India-Pakistan encounter. “It’s always quite exciting because it’s a special match. You always feel more pressure because people remember these matches for a long time,” Pant told StarSports in the pre-match show ‘Caught and Bold.’

“There’s a crowd everywhere you go. I’m sure in this group as well, everyone wants to make sure we win the India-Pakistan game. So that’s very normal, which I accept. At the same point in time, I do my best to disconnect from all those things and focus on the sport,” said Hardik Pandya, the vice-captain.

“I’m very grateful to the fans, they come and support us with all their love and everything. But, at the same point in time, when we go inside there, we can’t think of anything else,” Hardik Pandya added.

ICC tournaments provide the only stage for these two cricketing giants to face off. India’s prior unbeaten streak against Pakistan in T20 World Cups was snapped a few years ago in the UAE, where Pakistan thrashed the Virat Kohli-led side by a massive 10 wickets. However, India exacted revenge in style the following year, with Kohli playing a memorable knock at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

With a current 5-1 lead over Pakistan in T20 World Cup encounters, India will be looking to extend their dominance.
