He also opened up on his first World Cup experience against Pakistan. Speaking to ICC, he said, "India vs Pakistan has always been a big match, exhilarating.

I know both the teams are well prepared to go out and give their best. When it comes to sharing, the best of luck that I have is a little more towards India."
