2019 World Cup: Virat Kohli and Co intimidate Pakistan, says Waqar Younis

Former captain Waqar Younis believes the current Indian team intimidates Pakistan, who are always under pressure ahead of big-ticket clashes against their arch-rivals.

Pakistan suffered their seventh defeat to India in World Cup, going down by 89 runs via D/L method this time on Sunday and Younis said the defeat exposed the "massive difference" between the two sides."In the last few years, there's been a massive difference India and Pakistan - and again it showed at Old Trafford on Sunday," Younis wrote in a column for the ICC.

"Pakistan are still trying to rely on talent alone, while with India it's all about teamwork. They all know their roles, and they execute them superbly."We had good sides in the 1990s, but now I think this India team intimidates Pakistan. When Pakistan teams head into these games, they are always under pressure and feel like they're the weaker team."Younis said Pakistan have to improve their fitness to challenge India."Culture needs to change first, and then the fitness level needs to match the Indian players," he said.
