India had a dismal start to their campaign in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. The team ended up on the wrong side of the result as Pakistan thrashed them by a whopping ten wickets. This was the first time that India lost a match against Pakistan in ICC World Cup. The loss against Pakistan has caused a furore on Twitter with the cricket fans trolling the Indian players.
Meanwhile, an old video featuring former Indian skipper MS Dhoni has gone viral on social media. The video was from the ICC T20 World Cup 2016 when India had defeated Pakistan by six wickets during the league stage. In the video, MS can be heard explaining his point of view regarding the rivalry between India and Pakistan.
Maybe we will lose today, maybe after 20 years or maybe after 50 years: MS Dhoni
Back in 2016, MS Dhoni had predicted that there will be a time when India’s winning streak against Pakistan in the ICC tournament will break. Then Indian skipper had said that the Indians shouldn’t be proud of their record against the neighboring county as we can’t be winning always and India will also lose someday or the other.
“If you are proud of the fact that hum 11-0 se jeete hain toh ek reality yeh bhi hogi ki hum haarenge kabhi na kabhi haarenge. Chahe aaj haare, dus saal baad haare, bees saal baad haare ya pachas saal baad haare. But you know aisa nahi ho sakhta ki you’ll always keep winning.
(If you are proud of the fact that we won 11-0 then there is another reality that we will lose at some point in time. Maybe we will lose today, maybe after 20 years or maybe after 50 years. But you know this can’t happen that you’ll always keep winning),” MS Dhoni said these golden words during the 2016 T20 World Cup press conference.
