Recently, when Virat was asked a question about the India-Pakistan match whether he feels anything different in this match between the two teams, he said, ‘I have never felt like this. I like it like other matches. I know there is a lot of hype about this match especially the demand and sale of tickets. For us it is only a match of cricket which should be played in the right spirit which we will play. The atmosphere may look different from outside or from the point of view of the spectators but the players’ point of view remains professional. We take every match like a normal match.
