Pakistan star opening batsman, Fakhar Zaman thinks that they will have an upper hand over the arch-rivals India in their Asia Cup match scheduled on September 19 at Dubai International Stadium.
Fakhar who is so far the highest run-getter of 2018 for Pakistan with 665 runs, while talking to the media said that he will try to play one more impressive innings against the men in blue.
Fakhar had played a magnificent inning of 114 runs when Pakistan last met India in the final of the Champions Trophy 2017 –which Pakistan won by 180 runs.
The Mardan-born opener further said that every match has its own pressure so the team management have planned the things accordingly.
“Every match has its own take but yes the match between India and Pakistan has its own worth,” Fakhar stated.
He said that the management is keeping a close eye on each player’s performance and fitness level and they are up with different plans against each team.
“Fitness is the first priority for the team management and they are not letting any player get away with it,” Fakhar said.
Fakhar who scored a double century against Zimbabwe in July said that he always wishes to give his hundred per cent helping Pakistan to achieve big.
“My wish is to continue the run form and to score in every match I play for my country,” Fakhar said when asked about his run-form.
The 28-years-old, Fakhar is the fastest batsman in ODI format to reach 1000 runs in just 18 innings to cross West Indian great Vivian Richards who achieved the milestone in 21 innings.
