Indian captain Virat Kohli while talking ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy match against Pakistan said that, “As a team, I think Pakistan can surprise you because you don’t play against them so much. You know of their abilities. But you’re not too aware of how they react in different situations. All you can do in that situation is focus on your skill.”
“You cannot ever take them lightly. And not being familiar with the way they bowl or bat, I don’t think it’s going to be a massive factor for us because we as a team like to focus on what we can do,” he added.
India’s final XI hasn’t been finalised as yet and Kohli is still thinking about players who would be included for the match against Pakistan.
“There are all kinds of possibilities; two spinners, two fast bowlers, three fast bowlers, Hardik and a spinner. So we’ll see what the wicket is like and what we feel is going to match up well against the opposition. Accordingly, we’ll pick our best bowling attack. But as you mentioned everyone is bowling really well,” he said.
