Even if we lose to Kenya, we will not lose to Pakistan, says Anil Kumble on the upcoming India-Pakistan showdown


This is how the matches between India and Pakistan are played, and the important thing is to regard it as like any match, said Kumble. In our day, it was considered unacceptable to lose to Kenya but not to Pakistan.

Anil Kumble has shared his perspective on what it means to play against Asian competitors and what this means to the fans. He has some amazing stats against Pakistan. The prior leg-spinner for India highlighted how important it was to think about the game against Pakistan just like any other game.

Particularly, the last bilateral series between India and Pakistan took place between 2012 and 2013. Since then, the two Asian powerhouses have only competed against each other in ICC tournaments or the Asia Cup. The likelihood of the two teams playing each other frequently this season exists.

On September 2, in the Asia Cup, India and Pakistan will play their first match together in 2023. They might play each other again if both teams do well. At the 2018 ODI World Cup, which will be held in Ahmedabad on October 14, the two fierce rivals will also face off.

The trick is to approach it as if it were just another match, since that is how the matches between India and Pakistan are conducted. Kumble made the remark at the publication of Pitchside, the autobiography authored by seasoned cricket executive Amrit Mathur.
