If we could do our basics well we can defeat India tomorrow.”

Speaking about the difference acquired by the Pak team after winning last few games, the coach said,”We have improved ourselves in all the field. We have improved ourselves in batting, bowling and fielding and we hope the best tomorrow. After the India game, we prepared ourselves technically. That was something for which we were not prepared.”

Speaking about the type of mindset they would carry against India, Sarfraz said it would be totally attacking.

The momentum what we have been carrying will be continued and we’ll try to play the positive cricket again.”

Sarfraz also spoke about the pressure ahead of the big game against India. He said,”Pressure is always there in India vs Pakistan game. But the way our bowlers have made a comeback is tremendous. We took wickets in the death overs against Pakistan and we’ll try again to pick wickets and play a balanced game against India.”

“I thank our country for supporting us in this tournament. We have tried many youngsters in the tournament and they have performed well in big tournaments. As far as weather is concerned, that will not be an issue for both the teams.” Sarfraz added.
