India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 Rahul Dravid: Indian team is doing very well in Asia Cup. Team India defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets in their first match and by 40 runs in the second match against Hong Kong team. Now the match between India and Pakistan in Super-4 will be played on September 4. But before this, Indian coach Rahul Dravid has given big about Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant.
Rahul Dravid gave this statement
Pointing to the T20 World Cup, he said, ‘There is no first-choice wicketkeeper in the team. We play according to the conditions, the conditions of the field and the opposition and choose the best XI accordingly. There cannot be a first-choice playing XI for each position. It will vary. That day against Pakistan, we felt that Dinesh Karthik was the right choice for us. Regarding Rishabh Pant, who was out of the last match against Pakistan, he said that he is not the first option for the wicketkeeper.
Not worried about Kohli scoring runs
Rahul Dravid said on the eve of the match against Pakistan, ‘Virat Kohli is also coming back after a break, it is good to see that he is playing afresh. He is looking forward to playing all these matches. He got a chance to spend time in the field and hopefully he will do better from here.
Small innings can do wonders in T20 cricket
Rahul Dravid said, ‘It doesn’t really matter for us how many runs he scores. Especially with Virat (Kohli), people become a little obsessed with his figures. For us it’s not really about him. It is about the contribution made by him in different phases of the game. Even a small innings in T20 can make a big difference.
No need to focus on numbers
Speaking further, Rahul Dravid said that Virat Kohli’s rhythm is not a cause for concern for him. He appealed to the people not to pay much attention to the statistics of any one player. Coach Rahul Dravid is not worried about the number of runs scored by his star batsman Virat Kohli. He cares more than how much impact his contribution will make in the interest of the team.
