As Pakistan prepare for the T20 World Cup game against India on the 23rd of October, allrounder Mohammad Nawaz issued a big statement.
The Men in Green have recently won a tri-series in New Zealand and look very much prepared to take on arch-rivals India.
Mohammad Nawaz was the star of the tri-series as he put up an all-round show against New Zealand and Bangladesh.
He recently spoke in the post-match press conference that it’s always a pressure situation when they play against India.
It’s always a pressure match against India. When you perform against India, it becomes easier against other opponents. But my journey had begun with the series against South Africa, I had been playing cameos since then. I’ve been focusing on my batting, working alongside Mohammad Yousuf and Shahid Aslam. Team expects me to perform in both, batting and bowling. You have to be a three-dimensional player, that’s what the game demands these days.
Nawaz is also the player who helped Pakistan win against India in the Super 4 clash of the Asia Cup last month.
He scored 42 from just 20 balls and as a result, Pakistan won the game by 5 wickets.
On the other hand, in the recently-concluded tri-series, Nawaz scored an unbeaten 38 from just 22 balls which included two fours and three sixes.
Before their main clash against India, Pakistan have two warm-up games against England and Afghanistan respectively.
