Banish all fears of losing: Imran Khan tells Pakistani team ahead of World Cup clash against India

Islamabad, June 16 (IBNS): On a day when two arch-rivals are facing each other in a crucial World Cup match in Manchester, Pakistan PM Imran Khan adviced his country's team to banish all fears of losing the match.

Imran Khan is the only World Cup winning skipper of Pakistan. Under his leadership, a young Pakistani squad had won the World Cup in 1992.

"When I started my cricketing career I assumed success was 70% talent & 30% mind. By the time I finished playing cricket I felt it was 50-50 ratio. But now I tend to agree with my friend Gavaskar it's 60% mental strength & 40 % talent. Today role of mind will be more than 60%," read his first tweet.

Khan appreciated Pakistani skipper and called him a 'bold captain'.

"2/5 Today, given the intensity of the match, both teams will come under great mental pressure and the power of the mind will decide the outcome of the match today. In Sarfaraz we are fortunate to have a bold captain & today he will have to be at his daring best," he said.

"3/5 All fears of losing should be banished from the mind as the mind can only process one thought at a time. Fear of losing leads to a negative & defensive strategy & crucially mistakes by opponents are not pounced upon. So here are my suggestions for Sarfaraz & Pakistan team," the PM tweeted.

He said: "In order ro have a winning offensive strategy Sarfaraz must go in with specialist batsmen and bowlers because "Raillu Kattas" rarely perform under pressure - especially the intense kind that will be generated today. 2. Unless pitch is damp, Sarfaraz must win the toss & bat."

Wishing good luck, the leader said: "Finally, even though India may be the favourites, banish all fear of losing. Just give your best and fight till the last ball. Then accept whatever the result like true sportsmen. The nation's prayers are with all of you. Good Luck."

Pakistan had defeated India in England in 2017 during the Champions Trophy final.
