Babar Azam's unexpected reply to ‘will Pakistan beat India 3-0 in Asia Cup if they meet thrice?'



 Babar Azam said, they will approach the Asia Cup in the same manner and try to focus on their own game. India and Pakistan will meet on August 28 in Asia Cup.

India and Pakistan start their Asia Cup 2022 campaigns by facing each other on August 28 in Dubai. Since these two teams don't play bilaterals currently, Asia Cup and ICC events are the only instances where India play Pakistan.

When Pakistan captain Babar Azam was asked about the same and the pressure it will bring in a press conference, he gave a classy response

"Dekhe pressure kuch nahi hai. Koshish yahi hoti hai ki match ko match k tarha hi khele. (We'll try to approach it like any other match)," Babar Azam said when a journalist asked if Pakistan can make it 3-0 if they face India thrice in the upcoming Asia Cup in UAE.

Incidentally, the last time these two sides met at the same venue, Pakistan had beaten India for the first in a World Cup match in any format. In last year's group stage encounter in T20 World Cup, Pakistan beat India by 10 wickets.

Notably, in the last Asia Cup four years ago, there were two India vs Pakistan matches and India both of them. There would have been three had Pakistan reached the finals but they couldn't. India played Bangladesh in the final and beat them in a thriller to win the Asia Cup.
