Former India captain Kapil Dev said that cricketers get noticed after playing well in India-Pakistan matches and these games might also hurt senior players’ reputation if they fail to do well. However, they will face off to begin their T20 World Cup 2021 campaign in Dubai on Sunday, October 24 as well.
Ahead of their sixth clash in the mega event, former India captain, Kapil Dev has said that cricketers get more recognition if they do well in the matches between India and Pakistan. He further stated that young players receive accolades for doing well, whereas, if a senior player fails, they face slams.
“Players get recognition by doing well in IND-PAK matches. If a youngster comes out and performs well, then he gets global recognition. Whereas, if a senior player does not do well, then it can hurt his reputation,” Kapil Dev told ABP TV.

“It all depends on pressure and pleasure” – Kapil Dev on who can win the match
He further stated that if players take too much pressure before the match, it will affect their performance also.
“It all depends on pressure and pleasure. If you are enjoying the game or are under pressure. If you take too much pressure, then you will not get the desired performances. The chances of winning the game increase for the team who believes in having fun while playing,” explained Kapil Dev.
On the other hand, both India and Pakistan won their first warm-up matches by defeating England and West Indies respectively on Monday as well. And, it will be interesting to see if Pakistan could manage to register a win against India in the ICC event or India maintain their winning streak.
