Indian Cricket Team would be roaring to go & make a mark against a rejuvenated Pakistan. The Men in Green thumped Hong Kong and won the match by a mammoth 155 runs. India would be aware of Rizwan who has a habit of silently taking the game away from the opposition. The wicket-keeper batter is batting more responsibly as the skipper Babar Azam is facing some tough times.
Rahul Dravid, the Head Coach of India was spotted in a press conference on 03rd September (Saturday) ahead of the high voltage clash. India has been dealt a huge blow as BCCI mentioned on its social media account that Jadeja is out till T20 World Cup 2022. Indian Cricket Team is very much dependent on Jadeja as he is someone who can contribute to every department which makes him an asset.
Rahul Dravid’s Funny Pre-Match Press Conference
Rahul Dravid was asked about the bowling lineup of Pakistan by one of the journalists. “You have to respect their bowling certainly and I’m very confident that we have a very good bowling attack as well, that produces results,” Dravid said.
“It might not be as…I wanted to use a word, but I can’t use that word,” Dravid stuttered.
He gave a hint that the word is from S where everyone was heard laughing.
“For us, it’s not really about how many runs he makes. Especially with Virat, people get a little bit obsessed with his statistics and numbers,” said Dravid.
“It’s about the contributions he makes at different phases of the game. It doesn’t have to be in the 50s or 100s or a stat for us, even a small contribution makes a lot for us in the T20s,” Dravid concluded.

Selection Conundrum for Rahul Dravid
Head Coach Rahul Dravid has some head-aches for India vs Pakistan clash. The veteran would once again be confused about whether to go for Rishabh Pant or Dinesh Karthik. Both the batters didn’t get a chance to showcase their credentials in the 1st two matches.
The Head Coach might be thinking of playing both of them and playing Hardik Pandya as a 3rd Seamer. There is also Axar Patel vs Ravichandran Ashwin conundrum. Rohit Sharma & Rahul Dravid would be hoping for some miracle as the likes of Arshdeep & Avesh are not in great form.
India looks like a strong team on paper as they have got match-winners present who can single-handedly win the match from any junction. The team is going through a purple patch as they have successfully defeated England & West Indies in their own backyard. Rahul Dravid would be aware that one bad match can destroy all the hard work of the team.
