Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed has made it clear that while he is determined to beat India at the World Cup, his side will be looking at beating everyone in order to emerge victorious.
Pakistan will go up against their arch-rivals on June 16 in Manchester, but the men in green have never beaten India in their previous six World Cup clashes.
Despite being eager to end Pakistan’s winless streak against India, Sarfraz reiterated that it won’t be the most important match for his side at the World Cup.
“As a captain I have to see the entire tournament, we will obviously want to beat India but our focus will be on all the teams,” he was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder. “If we want to win the World Cup and perform well, then we have to play [well] against not just India but all other teams as well.”
Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
