On the eve of the high-tension ICC Champions Trophy match against Pakistan at Edgbaston here on Sunday, India all-rounder Hardik Pandya on Saturday dismissed any undue pressure on the Virat Kohli-led side.
Pandya asserted that they will approach the match as any other ordinary One-Day International (ODI) and it’s in the best interest of the team that they do not get under any pressure.
“I think as a team we will take it as a normal game, it’s best we don’t take any unnecessary pressure. It will be a normal game, we have to make sure we play the best cricket,” Pandya told BCCI’s Twitter handle here.
While India has an all-win record against the arch-rivals in World Cups, Pakistan hold an edge over the men-in-blue in the Champions Trophy.
India has only managed to win once in their three meetings against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy.
