Former India National Cricket Team opener Virender Sehwag recently spoke about the battle between the arch-rivals, India and Pakistan, and said that the matches are intense and difficult on the field, but off the field, the players share a great bond.
India National Cricket Team are set to lock horns with Babar Azam-led Pakistan National Cricket Team at the Dubai International Stadium, on Sunday, August 28.
The last time when the Men In Blue and the Men In Green faced off each other at the same venue during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, the Virat Kohli-led Team India lost the match by 10 wickets.
Also, India’s heartbreaking 10-wicket defeat in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 match against Pakistan was the first loss of the Men In Blue against Pakistan in a World Cup match.
Meanwhile, India batting great Sehwag said that the players of both India and Pakistan give their best during the high-profile clash to secure the win for their side.
“What I feel is that when India and Pakistan are on the ground, it’s a difficult game. Everybody gives their best. If somebody is from India, the person plays to win the game for his team. If somebody is playing for Pakistan, the same thing happens, “Sehwag said in a video uploaded by Star Sports on YouTube.
When we finish the match and return to the hotel, we spend time together – Virender Sehwag
The 43-year-old added that the India-Pakistan players also spend time together at the team hotel after finishing the match. He added that people feel India-Pakistan players fight and there is tension between them, which is not at all the case.
“When we finish the match and return to the hotel, we spend time together. There is lot of love between us,” Sehwag said in a video uploaded by Star Sports on YouTube
“Some people say that there is tension between India and Pakistan, or that there is fight between Indian and Pakistan players, but I would like to say that nothing of that sort happens. You see the competition only on the field. Outside it we are friends, we behave as if one is the elder brother and the other the younger brother,” he said.
