Pakistan enjoy a better record over India in ODI matches but aren’t able to enjoy success in World Cup games and, according to Pakistan cricketer Sohaib Maqsood, who has represented the side in 29 ODIs and 26 T20Is so far, the main reason for this is the overexcitement for the game.

“The reason for the Green Shirts’ consistent defeat against India in World Cup matches is because the Pakistani team became overexcited,” the 35-year-old told local media.”

“However, in the recent past, our team has started treating Indo-Pak matches normally and it has improved our performance too,” he added.

Maqsood was part of the Pakistani XI when India defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in the 2014 T20 World Cup in Bangladesh. A year later, Maqsood also featured in a 76-run loss to India in the ODI World Cup match in Adelaide.

The next meeting between these arch rivals in the T20 World Cup is scheduled to take place on October 23 in Melbourne.
