You will see Pakistan fighting against India: Sarfraz
Pakistan Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed is making sure his team feels no pressure ahead of the high-profile clash with arch-rivals India during the 2017 Champions Trophy in Birmingham on June 4.
The 30-year-old, who will be leading the Pakistan side in his first International Cricket Council event, said they want to stay relaxed before the match.
“It is important to be relaxed and confident before every big game, to keep the nerves in check,” he said.
When asked what bowling combination he plans to unleash against India, Sarfraz said the decision would be made after looking at the pitch on match day.
“It depends on how the pitch looks before the game,” he said. “We will unleash our best pace attack; maybe three or four fast-bowlers if needed, or a combination of spin and pace.”
The wicketkeeper-batsman vowed Pakistan will fight till the end against India. “You will see us playing to the best of our capabilities. You will see a fighting team,” he said. “Cricket brings happiness to our nation; we will do our best to make our country proud.”
