Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali is brimming with confidence going into his side’s clash with India in the Asia Cup on September 19.
Pakistan will face India at least twice in the tournament, and three times if both teams progress to the final.
Hasan’s confidence stems from the fact that Pakistan triumphed over their arch-rivals when they last met in the final of the Champions Trophy in England last year.
On top of that, Hasan pointed out that his side are more accustomed to the conditions in the United Arab Emirates, which is where the Asia Cup will be held, as they play their home games there.
“We are on top right now. They [India] are under pressure from the previous defeat,” Hasan was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. “In UAE, these are our conditions, we have the home advantage as we have been playing here for long, and are aware of how to use the conditions.”
