New Delhi. Pakistan coach Saqlain Mushtaq said that it will be great if his team takes on India in the final of the T20 World Cup. Mushtaq lauded both the teams for spreading the message of brotherhood in the first match of the group stage of the ongoing tournament. Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets on Sunday and according to Saqlain the players of both the teams gave a solid message of humanity with their sporting conduct.
Asked if he wants to play another match against his traditional rival in the final of this prestigious tournament, Saqlain said, “If India make it to the final, it will be great because I believe their team is strong. And everyone considers him a strong contender, I am not saying this because we have defeated him. Saqlain said, “The way Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and even our players behaved in the last match, it sends a solid message that we are all human beings, we all love each other, it is just one thing. It was a match.
The former off-spinner said, “Credit goes to the players for conveying the message. May the victory of friendship, defeat of enmity.” Saqlain said these things during the press conference before the match against Afghanistan on Friday. Saqlain also said that he considers England, Australia and South Africa as strong contenders. “When you come to be the world champion, you don’t look at the opponent, you focus on your game. England is a strong contender, Australia plays hard cricket. South Africa too. I believe the commitment, attitude and process is in your hands, not the result.
Saqlain said, “You should be able to execute your plans, no matter who you are playing against. If India makes it to the final then ICC will be happy, fans will be happy.
