Yuvraj Singh About This Rivalry:

India and Pakistan clashed twice during the 2007 T20 World Cup edition. These Asian powerhouses have also battled in the tournament’s 2012, 2014, 2016, 2021, and 2022 editions.

Reflecting on India’s exhilarating victory over Pakistan in the 2007 ICC final, Yuvraj highlighted the intense and passionate rivalry between the two nations’ fans. He remarked on the ‘crazy’ atmosphere that defines the India-Pakistan matches, underscoring the unique fervor that both sets of supporters bring to these high-stakes encounters.

Yuvraj Singh said, “ “Well, it’s a game of emotion. If we win, we’ll go crazy. If we lose, we’ll go crazy. But the thing is, if we win, they will go crazy with us. If we lose, they will go crazy with us. That’s the difference.”

He further said, “But I think, whether it’s India, Pakistan, or any other game, I’m sure the guys are going 100%. It’s just that I always feel that the team who control their emotion on that day better and focus on the match situation, they will win the game. In the last couple of years, we’ve had a better record than Pakistan. And hopefully, we can continue that.”
