It’s a rarity when national passion and national sport will be jostling for attention from sporting fans and lovers. It’s not just cricket where India play Pakistan but the arch-rivals are also gearing up to face-off each other, 10 miles away at the FIH Hockey World League Semi-Finals on Sunday in London.

Here’s the Indian Cricket captain Virat Kohli sending positive vibes ahead of the match against Pakistan.  

“I have played with the synthetic hockey balls indoors but have never tried hockey. It’s very scary I feel. Getting hit on the face from the penalty corner…I don’t know how these guys do it. You need a lot of guts to do that. I wish our team all the best, I have never tried my hand in it but they are pretty good so I am sure they’ll be fine,” Kohli said on the eve of the ICC champions Trophy final against Pakistan.

In the ongoing hockey tournament, India have recorded victory in two match so far while Pakistan have lost both their encounters.
