Ex-India seamer Zaheer Khan has warned the Virat Kohli-led team ahead of their ICC T20 World Cup match against New Zealand.
Team India, who lost their opening match against Pakistan by 10 wickets, will now face New Zealand in a virtual “do-or-die match”.
Khan also stated that it’s important from the T20 World Cup perspective that the Men in Blue get back to winning ways.
“We all know that if India plays to their potential, no team will find it easy to stand against,” Khan said, before adding, “it is always important for a side to catch up the winning momentum at the earliest, especially in the World Cup. This time India have lost their first match and should make sure it isn’t too late. The next game against New Zealand is a do or die one.”
Khan further added India should not take the Kiwis lightly.
“One thing is sure is that New Zealand wants to win every match and have great enthusiasm,” said Khan.
“Yes, the Pakistan result didn’t go their way, but the fight that they showed was brilliant. They didn’t score many runs in the first innings, but the effort that they put in the bowling and fielding, states that they never ever lose their hope. And India should be wary about it,” he added.
