As the world gets ready for the first India vs Pakistan fixture of the year, players from each team are engaged in intense practice sessions and preparation. But during one of these practice sessions, India captain Rohit Sharma and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal had a rather unusual interaction with some Indian reporters on the sidelines.
Both players were talking to the reporters about certain tweets and reports on the players' personal lives and the reporters were making some clarification on the same.
Rohit was heard saying, “Kaun hai? Batao?”, as he was asking the name of the journalist who had reported about their personal lives. When a reporter didn't reveal the name despite claiming that he might be present in the troop, Chahal hilariously replied, "Ye antakshari thodi hi chal rahi hai. Idhar antakshari khelein kya? (We are not playing ‘guess the names’ here).
Talking about the India-Pakistan fixture, captain Rohit Sharma believes that their team has undergone a lot of change, as they have to take a different approach to prepare for the upcoming tournaments. Sharma said, “Asia Cup is happening after a long time, but we played Pakistan last year in Dubai, where obviously the result did not go our way.
“But the Asia Cup is different now. The team is playing differently and has prepared differently, so a lot of things have changed from then. But for us, we need to assess the conditions, keep in mind the fact that we will be playing in 40-plus degrees. We need to assess all those factors and prepare accordingly.”
