Want to learn how to handle pressure, play against India,' says Pakistan pacer
Pakistan fast bowler Junaid Khan feels that if a cricketer from his country wants to learn the art of handling pressure in a game then he should play against Team India. The left-arm quick recalled playing in a bilateral series against India back 2012-13 and stated that India-Pakistan clashes are the most high-tensed matches in international cricket. Both nations last played in a bilateral serin in 2012-13, held in India. While the visitors won the 3-match series 2-1, the T20I rubber was leveled at 1-1. The left-arm quick was a part of that tour and was the joint-most wicket-taker in the ODIs. He ended up scalping 8 wickets, including a four-wicket haul in the final game held in Delhi. In a recent conversation with Cricket Pakistan, Junaid stated how that series against India helped him handling pressure in crunch situations.
“If a player wants to learn how to handle pressure, he should play against India. There is a lot of pressure on both teams during India-Pakistan encounters. I learned how to handle pressure during the 2012 series against India in India. Fans from both countries will enjoy these matches but the decision to play the series depends on the administrators,” Junaid told Cricket Pakistan.
