Dravid advises against excessively counting his chickens.
Rahul Dravid, the head coach of squad India, acknowledged the speculation following the release of the eagerly awaited Asia Cup schedule and stated that his squad will approach the competition “step by step,” concentrating on one game at a time.
The historic match between India and Pakistan has been scheduled for September 2 in Kandy for the 2023 Asia Cup, which will be jointly hosted by Pakistan and Sri Lanka. If they advance to the Super 4s and eventually reach the final, India and Pakistan may face each other three times during the continental competition.
“The schedule is out, and you have to play Pakistan three times to qualify for the Super4s, so take it one step at a time. I don’t think it’s wise to overly count my hens. In a video that BCCI tweeted, Dravid stated, “I want to play one game at a time. David also emphasised that the final matchup with Pakistan would be a thrilling fight, but he emphasised the necessity for Team India to keep its attention on moving forward one stage at a time.
“We are aware that Pakistan and Nepal will be our opponents in the first two games. We must concentrate on those matches, play well, and prevail in order to move on to the rest of the competition.
