The moment that all the die-hard cricket fans were waiting for has finally come as Team India will be locking horns against their arch-rivals Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash at the Old Trafford on Sunday. India will be looking to continue their unbeaten run against the arch-rivals in World Cups while Pakistan will be eyeing their maiden win against the Men In Blue in the showpiece event.
At the same time, even the BSF jawans along the LoC have already started readying themselves for the matches. They can be seen showing their excitement by cheering for Team India from their side.
The jawans confidently said that India will not only win the match against their arch-rivals but will also lift the coveted trophy at Lord's. They were also seen holding pictures of their favourite players. Most of them backed skipper Virat Kohli and 2011 World Cup-winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni who they believed will perform well against the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side.
DIG, BSF, R MuthuKrishnan shared how difficult it was to work on the LoC. Despite a tough schedule, he also mentioned about the excitement and enthusiasm of his and his jawans for the ongoing World Cup.
The jawans were then seen shaking a leg on 'Chak De India' with slogans of 'India Jeetega' and 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' after which the brave warriors sent their messages to the Men In Blue. The jawans then enjoyed a game of Cricket where they showed their interest and passion towards the game.
Meanwhile, India are at the third position in the points table after having played three games. They registered convincing wins against South Africa by six wickets and the reigning World Champions Australia by 36 runs while their previous encounter against New Zealand at Trent Bridge on Thursday was abandoned due to rain. Only India and New Zealand are the two undefeated sides in the ongoing tournament.
India will be hoping that the absence of their star opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan does not affect their chances against Pakistan. Dhawan will not be featuring in a few games as he had injured his thumb against Australia last weekend where he had scored a match-winning century.
