India's former World Cup winning captain and all-rounder Kapil Dev feels that players who perform well in the Pakistan-India encounter get global recognition.
The 62-year-old expressed his views while talking to a local channel. Kapil said. “If a youngster comes out and performs well, then he gets praised and receives global recognition.”
Pakistan and India are due to face each other on October 24 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The former captain also said that senior players have the weight of performing well in this mega encounter
“However, if a senior player fails to perform on the big stage, his reputation can get damaged,” he added.
Advising players ahead of the blockbuster match, the former cricketer opined that a team that takes “too much pressure” fails to perform well, and the team that enjoys themselves on the field can become successful.
“It all depends on pressure and pleasure. Whether you are enjoying the game or are under pressure. If you take too much pressure, then you will not get the desired performances,” he said.
“The chances of winning the game increase for the team that believes in having fun while playing,” he further added.
