Cricket’s ‘biggest’ game: Pakistan coach Gary Kirsten on India clash in T20 World Cup

With the opening loss vs USA a distant memory, Kirsten reiterated the importance of the upcoming India vs Pakistan contest.

Pakistan’s head coach, Gary Kirsten, addressed the media ahead of their highly anticipated T20 World Cup clash against arch-rivals India on Sunday in New York. While acknowledging the immense pressure surrounding the encounter, Kirsten emphasized his team’s focus and motivation.

“Cricket Doesn’t Get Bigger Than This”: Gary Kirsten

“This is a massive privilege for everyone involved,” declared Kirsten. “India versus Pakistan in a World Cup – it doesn’t get bigger than this. It’s going to be a fantastic occasion.”

Moving on from opening T20 World Cup loss

Pakistan‘s opening match of the tournament resulted in a narrow five-run defeat to co-hosts USA in a Super Over. However, Kirsten insists his squad is not dwelling on the past.

“We can’t keep harping on history,” he stated. “Our focus now needs to be on playing the best cricket we can. Tomorrow, we’ll go out there and utilize our skills to put pressure on India. That’s our approach for every game.”

Motivation not needed, focus on execution

Acknowledging the inherent motivation surrounding the India clash, Gary Kirsten highlighted the importance of executing their game plan. “There’s no need for me to motivate the boys any further. They’re fired up and ready. We simply need to forget the past two days and move forward. Focusing on results is beyond our control. What we can control is our preparation, our attitude, and executing our skills to the best of our ability.”
