Johnson noted that anything can happen during a World Cup match when discussing India’s chances at the 2018 ICC T20 Men’s World Championship.

“Enjoy the moment when it comes to the World Cup. You have to concentrate. They are all sizable teams. Because of the IPL, Indian players are used to playing in front of big crowds and under pressure. All of that (their Asian Cup performance) should be behind them.” remarked Johnson.
