Mirpur (Dhaka), Feb.26 (ANI): Heaping praise on India’s current streak of success in the T20 format, star opener Rohit Sharma has stressed that his side will aim to put arch-rivals Pakistan ‘under-pressure’ in the much-anticipated fourth Asia Cup contest on Saturday.
“Our team is currently playing a very good cricket in the T20 format. We have won last two series (against Australia and Sri Lanka). Now, our preparation is for the match against Pakistan. We will try to read their strengths and weaknesses and try to put them under pressure,” said Rohit, who was India’s hero against Bangladesh in the previous game.
The 28-year-old prolific batsman admitted that India are wary of Pakistan’s bowling arsenal, which gained a decent amount of experience after the recently-concluded domestic Twenty20 competition, Pakistan Super League.
“Pakistan bowling attack is good overall. We will focus on their entire bowling unit rather than on a particular individual. They have been playing a lot of T20 cricket of late,” added Rohit.
While downplaying the mini-batting collapse India had suffered during the previous game, Rohit insisted that his side are solid enough to take on any challenge at any given point.
“It’s not a matter of concern because we still ended up scoring 165 plus in the last game. Games will happen where you will lose wickets early on but we have a solid team which is ready to take up the challenge at any given point.” (ANI)
