Beat them comprehensively: Sushil Kumar tells Team India on World Cup clash with Pakistan

first_imgIndia’s double Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar wants Virat Kohli’s team to play against Pakistan in the ICC World Cup tie this June and “beat them comprehensively” to avenge the death of soldiers in the Pulwama attack.”Believe me, it’s a great high [beating Pakistan]. I have done that at the Commonwealth level twice. The feeling is incomparable and fills one with a lot of pride,” the champion wrestler told India Today in an interview.Sushil said that boycotting ties against Pakistan at the world level isn’t a good idea.”When it comes to a world body, then we alone cannot decide the participation. We have to become a world champion there, that is our goal. If we are in a situation where we have to play against Pakistan then we can’t refuse. Going on a backfoot at that juncture is also not a matter of national pride. I want our players to perform their best and beat them comprehensively,” he said.The 35-year-old says he was terribly shaken after the terror attack.”Whatever our fauji bhai [armymen] think should be done. They should be given a free hand to give a befitting reply to Pakistan. I have many friends in the defence forces. I talk to them regularly, at the airports or in programmes, and they tell me how many times they are not even able to sleep properly for days due to their tough assignments. When it comes to standing up for the country, we should not think about anything, be it sports or anything else. We should decide how to avenge the loss of our soldiers. They are our true heroes.”advertisement”I was very angry when the attack happened. It’s a huge thing to lose a family member like this. They left everything behind and lost their life for the country. I know how proud one feels when we walk holding the Indian flag in our hand,” said Sushil.He is also not bothered if India lose Tokyo Olympics’ quota places due to non-participation of two players from Pakistan in the shooting World Cup which starts in Delhi from today.”Sports is one thing but when it comes to the country’s security and pride of our soldiers, nothing should be thought, be it losing a place or not.”Also Read | Hardik Pandya ruled out of Australia series due to back injuryAlso Read | Why not beat Pakistan and make sure they don’t qualify for World Cup semis: Sunil GavaskarAlso Read | No constitutional or contractual way India can block Pakistan from World Cup: BCCI officialAlso Read | Let India beat Pakistan and ensure they don’t advance in World Cup: Sunil Gavaskarlast_img read more
