ICC CWC 2019: Raina predicts outcome of India vs Pakistan fixture

Share

India vs Pakistan is one of the biggest high-tension clashes of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. While both the teams will face each other on 16th June, Sunday at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, the 2011 World Cup Winner -Suresh Raina has poured his emotions for the clash and has also predicted the winner.

Here’s what he said on the clash –

 “I do not think that at this point of time, any of the players will be thinking about the Pakistan match because we need to do well in our initial matches and if we will be able to win those matches then I do not think there will be an issue for the Pakistan match.

But in case we lose some the matches, then I can say that there will be pressure on India for the Pakistan match, but if we win the first three matches then I do not think our World Cup record is going to break and Pakistan cannot beat us.

A 90's born who has witnessed Sachin becoming "The God", Dhoni becoming "The only Captain to have won all the ICC trophies" and Kohli turning into a "run-machine". Cricket is something I am crazy for and I try to deliver the best and true I can in my every writing.
