Here are Kohli’s comments ahead of Indo-Pak match!
 
Team India Captain Virat Kohli, in a press conference ahead of India-Pakistan 2019 World Cup match, has said the match against Pakistan is not more important or more special than any other match in 2019 World Cup. "The game starts at a certain time tomorrow and ends at a certain time, it won't be lasting a lifetime. Our tournament doesn't end tomorrow. The focus always is on the bigger picture," he added.
 
Chiku has said the conditions and length of the game will dictate the composition of Team India for their match against Pakistan in 2019 World Cup on Sunday. "We aren't looking at the opposition to select our XI," he added. "If the conditions are...different than last game...then we'll take a call [on playing three spinners] accordingly," he added.
 
He has even revealed the tensest moment of his career against Pakistan came in 2009 Champions Trophy. He added he was flown in as a replacement for Yuvraj Singh and he got out after playing a bad shot. "I couldn't sleep till 6...I was looking at ceiling thinking that's it...I've flown in and...now I'm finished," he said.
 
Talking about facing Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir tomorrow, Kohli said, "I don't want to say anything for TRP." "I had spoken about Kagiso Rabada as well earlier, I just see the ball, whether it's red or white, it isn't a contest between me and Amir, these are not things that come to mind," he added.
 
He shared another interesting thing that he told his friends to watch the match on TV and not ask him for passes. "If you start the process of organizing tickets or passes...then there's no end to it," he added. "I prefer there aren't many people asking for passes," he further said.
 
He further said the match against Pakistan is not more important or more special than any other match in 2019 World Cup. "The game starts at a certain time tomorrow and ends at a certain time, it won't be lasting a lifetime. Our tournament doesn't end tomorrow. The focus always is on the bigger picture," he added.
 
India will face their arch-rivals today in the round-robin league of the ICC World Cup 2019. This is expected to be a rain-affected game which includes few showers during the course of the match. This is the first time India and Pakistan are playing against each other after the Pulwama attack.
