T20 World Cup: World cricket will have some fun if India and Pakistan qualify for the final - Saqlain Mushtaq

Pakistan head coach Saqlain Mushtaq wants to see his team play the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 final against India as he thinks that it will be good for the game of cricket if the two teams lock horns again in the summit clash on November 15.

Pakistan crushed India by 10 wickets in their opening game in the Super 12 to register their maiden World Cup win over their neighbours in white-ball cricket. The two arch rivals had contested in the inaugural T20 World Cup final in Durban in 2007 in which India beat Pakistan.

“If India and Pakistan qualify for the final together then the ICC, and the entire world cricket will have some fun. It will be good for cricket because they are our neighbouring country. If we both play then it will be good for our relationship as well,” Saqlain, who was appointed Pakistan’s interim coach for this tournament, said on Friday.

Saqlain Mushtaq also said that the October 24 game between Pakistan and India “was a win for insaniyat and mohabbat”.

“Whatever happened in the last match, be it Virat Kohli, Dhoni hugging our players, it was great for world cricket. Keeping aside the India versus Pakistan clash, the best thing, for me, from the match was that it was a win for insaniyat and mohabbat.

“It’s a game and winning and losing is part of it. Hats off to Babar, Rizwan, Dani, Virat, Dhoni because they have sent a strong message for the entire world and for both the countries. I always say, ‘mohabbat ki jeet ho, aur nafrat ki haar ho (love should trump hate),” Saqlain said.

Group 2 toppers Pakistan will take on Afghanistan in their third Super 12 clash in Dubai on Friday. A win for the Men in Green will most certainly guarantee them a place in the semifinals.
