New Delhi. Indian young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant expressed his excitement ahead of India’s first match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 against Pakistan on 23 October (Sunday). According to the official website of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Rishabh Pant admitted that there is a special feeling to play against Pakistan on the big stage and he looks forward to getting a chance to take on the arch-rivals on Sunday.
Talking about the experience of playing with arch-rivals Pakistan, Rishabh Pant said, “Playing against Pakistan is always special, because there is always a special kind of hype around that match.” He said, “There is a lot of emotion attached not only to us but to the fans and everyone.

Rishabh Pant said, “It was a different atmosphere and when we were singing the national anthem, I really got goosebumps.” During this, Rishabh has also remembered the T20 World Cup 2021 match last year. Apart from playing an innings of 39 runs in this match, Pant had a partnership of 53 runs with the then captain Kohli. However, in this match, India had to face defeat by 10 wickets at the hands of Pakistan.
Pant said, “I remember that I had hit two sixes in the same over off Hasan Ali. We were just trying to increase the run rate because we lost early wickets and we had a partnership – me and Virat. The wicket-keeper batsman said, “We were picking up the run pace and I hit him for two sixes with one hand… my special shot.”
