Prime Minister Imran Khan threw his weight behind the Pakistan cricket team on Saturday, expressing the hope that the Babar Azam-led squad will thrash India in the T20 World Cup clash tomorrow (Sunday).
The prime minister wished the team well ahead of its high-voltage encounter against India. Millions across the globe will watch the encounter as the two arch-rivals play each other in the World Cup fixture.
The statement from the prime minister came as he discussed cricket with his aides. “This team has the talent to defeat India,” he said.
“Insha’Allah, Pakistan will definitely beat India tomorrow,” he said.
Pakistan skipper Babar Azam Thursday warned India, saying that the national squad will not think of Pakistan’s past performances when it clashes with India on Sunday.
Pakistan have lost all seven World Cup (50 over) clashes against India as well as five games in the Twenty20 World Cup and start as “underdogs”.
Exuding confidence, Babar stressed that the past is irrelevant to his players.
