Sehwag recalled the story of WC 2003, told how Sachin played concentrated between sledges

Whenever the time comes for the clash between India and Pakistan (IND vs PAK) in cricket, the debate starts weeks in advance. This time also India and Pakistan are going to meet in the Asian Cup 2022. This match will take place on August 28. Now the atmosphere has also started to build for this match. Former cricketers have started talking about this great match between India and Pakistan. Former cricketer Virender Sehwag has also joined this list. He has narrated an anecdote related to the India-Pakistan match in the 2003 World Cup.

Sehwag said in a conversation with Star Sports: ‘We knew that (the India-Pak match, World Cup 2003) was an important match. Sachin had experience. He played many matches against Pakistan. He was frozen in the fold. He had reached his stage and I was running. During that time, Shahid Afridi from Pakistan was constantly provoking him. He talked a lot but Sachin was focused. I knew it was important for him to stay in the fold.

Sehwag said: ‘I remember Shoaib Akhtar making a statement before that match that he would destroy the higher order of India. He had not read his statement then, nor did Sachin Tendulkar read it. But Sachin gave Shoaib Akhtar a tremendous response in the first inning change. He made 18 runs in this over.

In this 2003 World Cup match, Pakistan had set a target of 274 runs against India. In response, the Indian team won by 6 wickets thanks to Sachin’s 98 on 75 balls. India had reached the final at that World Cup, where they had to face defeat at the hands of Australia.
