The biggest and the most important question of the whole press conference, I think. Journalists asked about the fitness of Hardik Pandya, as the bowler. Virat explained that he is getting better day by day. And Virat believes that he will start bowling in the tournament. Also, he said that he backs Hardik as a pure batter also, provided how he changed the series against Australia. And a talented batter like Hardik can’t be produced overnight.

Condition of pitches

Virat believes that condition of pitches will be better in the T20 World Cup than in the IPL. But dew will be a factor in this World Cup in the night matches and toss will prove out to be an essential toss as batting second would be comparatively easy.

Strong opponent

In the last, he talked about Pakistan. He told that they are talented opponents and they have also a brilliant lineup. India have to play their best game to win against Pakistan. And he also said that the team which handle critical situations better will definitely be on the winning side.
