India and Pakistan don’t compete against each other in regular bilateral cricket series due to ongoing political issues. Instead, their matches are limited to ICC tournaments, which heightens the excitement and intensity of their encounters. Fans from both countries, as well as cricket enthusiasts worldwide, eagerly anticipate these matchups, as they are known for their high-stakes and thrilling nature.

This intense rivalry will be reignited when India and Pakistan meet in the T20 World Cup 2024, during their Group A match on Sunday in New York. Matches between these two nations are treated like grand festivals in both countries, with fans engaging passionately. In this fervent atmosphere, it’s common for fans to come up with humorous slogans to taunt the opposing team.

One such line, which grabbed everyone’s attention was, “Tel lagao Dabur ka, wicket lo Babar ka. (Put some oil of Dabar and scalp the wicket of Babar Azam). If we are going to see it from a player’s perspective, then they also work hard for their country. These kind of banters keep on going and the interesting part is, it brings a lot of emotion from both the countries.

These narratives made by the fans like ‘Tel lagao Dabur ka, wicket lo Babar ka’ (laughs), makes the competition more interesting,” Rishabh Pant said on India TV’s show, ‘Aap Ki Adaalat’.

Rishabh Pant Reflects on IPL 2024 Sledging Incident and Fans’ Chant Ahead of India-Pakistan Match

Before the eagerly awaited match, Indian wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant shared his thoughts on the humorous chant created by Indian fans to tease Pakistan captain Babar Azam. Additionally, Pant recounted a sledging incident involving him and star batter Virat Kohli during the IPL 2024 match between Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru.

“It happened during the RCB game. I was banned without doing anything. I tried a lot to prevent it but it was uncontrollable, not in my hands. Sitting outside I thought I’ll disturb the mindset or something because the RCB dressing room is right behind the sightscreen,” said Pant.

“At first I did not know. I thought they are calling their own teammates. Then when I realised, I thought I might as well tease him a little more. I didn’t give him the chance to say anything because I escaped,” he added.
