The World Cup final between India and Australia will be played tomorrow at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Australian captain Pat Cummins met the press earlier this morning ahead of the much-anticipated match.
In that, he said that “We will suppress the agitation of the Indian fans who will gather in Ahmedabad” and it became important.
Pat Cummins spoke at the meeting…
“The 1,30,000 fans who will gather in Ahmedabad will be rooting for India on one side. But there is nothing more satisfying than silencing a big crowd without any fanfare. That is our target tomorrow. We have not won any match comfortably except against the Netherlands. We have had to fight for victory in every match. In this, “The thing to note is that we are able to find ways to win without playing at full strength and full dominance. This has given us a lot of confidence.”
In between, a journalist asked, “Which Indian player do you think will give you the biggest challenge?” When asked, Pat Cummins said, “We didn’t face Shami in the first match. He has played very well in the subsequent matches. He has bowled well for both types of batsmen, right and left. He is a class bowler. It will be a challenge for us to face him.”
The speaker also said, “Both the teams are going to play on the same pitch. When playing in the home ground in the home country, there must be some comfort for the teams hosting the match. But, we have also played a lot of cricket here. So let’s wait and see. Kohli and Rohit are classy players. We have some plans to beat them.”
Talking about the 2003 World Cup memories, he said, “No player who played during the 2003 World Cup is now in either team. That was many years ago. We were kids then. 1999, 2003, 2007 and watching the World Cups as kids, it’s great to stand at a moment like this. It’s a precious moment. They faced We are going to face the same challenge tomorrow. I am waiting for it with great interest. Winning the World Cup 2015 was the pinnacle of my career. If we win tomorrow, it will be a new pinnacle.”
