T20 World Cup | Whole team is slightly nervous but ready to give 100 percent: Rishabh Pant

t20 world cup | whole team is slightly nervous but ready to give 100 percent: rishabh pant

Rishabh Pant

India’s star wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant on Wednesday, August 17 conceded that the entire Indian team is “slightly nervous” in the lead-up to the T20 World Cup, which will be held in Australia in October-November. Pant said the team, however, is keen on giving its 100 percent Down Under and put behind the early exit from the last edition of the World Cup in the UAE.

India were eliminated in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup in 2021 after losing their first two matches to Pakistan and New Zealand. Victories against Scotland, Namibia and Afghanistan weren’t enough for India to reach the semi-final.

However, India have been approaching T20Is differently ever since their early exit. Under new captain Rohit Sharma, India are yet to lose a T20I series and are heading into Asia Cup 2022, starting August 27, as one of the firm favourites.

“With the World Cup around the corner, the whole team is slightly nervous, but at the same time, as a team, we love to give our 100 per cent and focus on our process. That’s the only thing we can do,” Pant said on the sidelines of an event organised by the tourism board of the State of Victoria, as quoted by PTI news agency.

India has not won an ICC event since the Champions Trophy triumph in 2013, and the team is keen to break the drought this time around.

“Hopefully we’ll reach the final and do the best for the team,” Pant said.

“As (a part of) the Indian team, we’d love to have as many supporters as we can in Australia to back us. Every cheer counts for us. It makes us believe that we can win.”

MCG’S AMAZING ATMOSPHERE

India will open their Asia Cup campaign on August 28 against Pakistan in Dubai and they will also face their arch-rivals in the opener of the T20 World Cup at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground on October 23.

“I think it’s an amazing atmosphere, playing at the MCG because it’s one of the most iconic cricket stadiums around the world. Especially the Indian crowd there is brilliant for us,” he said.

Pant will be high on confidence Down Under, less than two years after playing a crucial role in the Indian Test team’s historic triumph in the 2020-21 series there.

“It’s one of my favourite moments in my cricketing career so far. I’m glad that I could help my team cross the line that day and have that amazing Test match and series win,” Pant said.
