New Delhi, June 8: Any India-Pakistan match is bound to be a high octane clash. It is bound to be very challenging and intense. Several former players of both courtiers have admitted that on numerous occasions.

Prior to the Group 'A' ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024 match on Sunday between the two arch rivals, Team India skipper Rohit Sharma too revealed the same lines. 

Ahead of the mega encounter in New York, Rohit said his team will look to give its best performance on the field to register a win at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium.   

"When you play Pakistan, it is always challenging. For us, we just need to think about it as another opposition that we want to beat them and play well against them, there is a whole lot that we need to do," said Rohit in a Star Sports video on X.

Team India enjoys a 6-1 victory record over arch-rivals Pakistan in the T20 World Cup and would look to strengthen that on Sunday.

Talking about the excitement of the clash, India star Virat Kohli said the atmosphere is always buzzing inside and outside the stadium to witness the historic match.

"World Cup is a different emotion, different feeling and you can sense that build up. There is nervousness in the air and everyone is buzzing. I love those moments and we play for such moments. It is very fortunate to experience it," said Kohli.

"The atmosphere outside the stadium, all these things are not quite noticed or spoken about but leads up to the game like this which makes it so special. The moment I stepped on the field, I felt that energy in the stadium. Everyone was waiting for that game to start and you can feel that palpable energy in the air," he added.

India began their campaign with an eight-wicket win over Ireland while Pakistan faced a shocking defeat against co-host USA in their opening Group A fixture.

While both neighbours are expected to go all out against each other to post a win, the uncertainty over nature of the challenging pitch is expected to play a decisive factor. (With IANS support)
