Today is the day and today is the match of the T20 World cup 2022. Yes, it is India vs Pakistan.
As the world knows that India and Pakistan are not playing the bilateral series for decades. They only meet each other in ICC tournaments and Asia Cup and that too mostly at neutral venues.
One of the reasons behind the extra hype for the match between is this.
The rivalry between Australia and England is also known but the rivalry between India and Pakistan is the ultimate rivalry as the fans of both teams are very crazy and cricket is like a religion in both these countries.
The tournament organizers get loads of crowds and sponsors get a lot of attention and TRP on the match between India and Pakistan. The sponsors request the ICC to have Pakistan and India in the same group so that they get more viewers.
The match will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) where more Indians and Pakistani fans stay.
There is always excitement and nervousness among the fans of both sides.
It is obvious that each member of both teams will be nervous and will have sleepless nights days before the match.
The social media will buzz with comments, pictures, predictions and memes. The match will be played on social media between the fans of both sides and each one will win before the match is played.
The players on both sides will be keeping themselves away from social media because it can cause mental distress to them. The team’s media team must be keeping a close eye on social media.
During such pressure matches, it is very imperative that the players keep themselves calm and cool. They only need to concentrate on their game and sharpen their skills rather than hearing or viewing the buzz.
These days players are kept away from the noise on media and social media as it can affect a lot on the mental state of the player and that lead to poor performance on the day when it matters the most.
We as fans should always wish to have a good match and wish that all players stay fit physically, emotionally and mentally.
We should always wish that the best team on the day wins the match.
As far as the analysis of the experts it seems that today both India and Pakistan are looking the same side with equal strengths and weaknesses.
We would like to see a good match and wish all the best players be fit for the match.
