Ahead of the marquee clash between the two teams, legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has warned Virat Kohli’s men to exercise caution against the Pakistani pace battery when the two teams meet in the World Cup clash on Sunday at Old Trafford. Sachin advised the Indian team to opt for a positive approach against Pakistan.
“I wouldn’t go in with a negative mindset of playing dot balls against him. If you get an opportunity, I would encourage India to play their shots and stay positive. It’s not about survival but rather going out there and even defend positively. No need to do anything different,” Tendulkar told a news channel after India’s match against New Zealand was washed out at Trent Bridge.
“Rohit and Virat should also be looking to play long innings. The plan should be that the rest of the guys play around them,” Tendulkar added.
“Rohit and Virat are the two more experienced players in the line-up and Pakistan would be focusing on getting them early without any doubt as that opens the game for them. Amir and Wahab Riaz will definitely target their wickets early on,” Tendulkar added.
