In his speech before the match against India, Babar Azam urged his audience to “remember last year’s game.”

Babar Azam boosted the morale of his side by bringing up the victory against India by 10 wickets that they had achieved the previous year. In order for them to achieve the same outcomes, he strongly encouraged them to play with the same body language.

The upcoming matchup between India and Pakistan at the Asia Cup has the attention of people all over the world. As a result of Pakistan’s victory against India in the Twenty20 World Cup the previous year, the team will most certainly be walking on to the field with a spring in their step.

Pakistan will try to maintain their scorching form in the face of India’s plans to get retribution for their defeat in the T20 World Cup in 2021. Ahead of the much-anticipated matchup, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam gave his squad a boost of confidence by reminding them of their victory against India by 10 wickets the previous year. In order for them to achieve the same outcomes, he strongly encouraged them to play with the same body language.

“It is imperative that you play with the same body language that you all shown while competing in the T20 World Cup. Remember the match that we competed in the year before? Just keep it in mind. When you think about it in retrospect, you will remember all of the pleasant recollections, as well as the preparation you put in.

If you put in the effort to properly prepare, you will see results. Have confidence in yourself; I’m aware that we’re missing our primary fast bowler, but don’t make the rest of the quick bowlers and the rest of the team feel like we need him. I hope everything works out for you, “remarked Babar in a video that was shared on Twitter by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

In addition, the PCB disseminated an official press statement, in which Babar not only discussed his views just before the match but also emphasised the importance of the team believing in themselves and their capabilities.

“The victory that we had over India exactly 11 months ago at the same location is a good reference point, but that is all it is. Even while we will continue to look at it in a positive light, the match on Sunday, as well as any other matches that may take place in the future, will be brand new and will be played under brand new conditions.

I have always been of the opinion that playing and performing for Pakistan does not require any additional motivation on your part. Being able to represent your nation on a world stage in and of itself is a tremendous honour and source of pride, and the goal should always be to do your nation proud.”

Players from both sides were seen conversing with one other prior to the match between India and Pakistan. The match will take place in India. Shaheen Shah Afridi is unable to participate in the competition owing to an injury; nonetheless, on Thursday, stars including as Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Rishabh Pant spoke with and chatted with Afridi.

After that, Shaheen conveyed to Virat his desire to observe the latter’s return to peak physical condition. In addition to that, he joked with Pant about how he wished he could hit one-handed sixes like him.
