Every Pak player needs to perform during India series, says Misbah

Karachi, Dec. 20 (ANI): Pakistan's limited-overs captain Misbahul Haq has called for an all-round show from his side in the One-Day International series against India, knowing that the opponents will be geared up for a fightback following the humiliation against England in the recent Test series.

"India will try to give a better performance to cover their defeat against England and, with that in mind, we have to work very hard," The Express Tribune quoted Misbah, as saying.

"No team can win by depending solely on a single player or working on just one department. Both bowling and batting will have to play their role. Saeed Ajmal will be our trump card as always but I think it's not fair to depend on him only. Every bowler has a role to play against a strong Indian batting line-up," he added.

He said he expects a good show from pacer Mohammad Irfan, saying the bowler could create problems for India.

"Pakistan-India matches will remain pressure games because of high expectations. They key for us will be to play normal cricket and take them as any other opponents," he further said. (ANI)
