Team India has been showcasing an extraordinary performance in the ICC World Cup 2023, consistently dominating their matches against rival teams. Even South Africa, known for their strength, couldn’t withstand the formidable force of the Indian team.

In their pursuit to chase down a target of 327 runs at the iconic Eden Gardens, South Africa found themselves bundled out for a mere 83 runs. None of their batters managed to reach the 20-run mark, with Ravindra Jadeja securing a remarkable five-wicket haul, while Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav contributed with two wickets each.

Former Pakistani cricket legends, including Misbah-ul-Haq, Wasim Akram, Shoaib Malik, and Moin Khan, were approached for their insights on how to halt Team India’s impressive run.

Wasim Akram commended India’s consistent display of high-quality cricket, emphasizing that their success is the result of meticulous preparation spanning over a year.

Misbah-ul-Haq stressed the importance of other teams enhancing their mental strength when facing India. He explained that the Indian team’s psychological impact often leads to opponents losing half the battle before even stepping onto the field. To challenge India effectively, teams must overcome this mental barrier. He believes that if the Men in Blue are put under pressure, they might face difficulties, and the real test will likely come in the semi-finals.

Misbah reiterated the significance of applying pressure, while Malik underlined India’s exceptional ability to thrive in high-pressure situations.
