Lahore, Nov. 30 (ANI): Pakistan's Twenty20 captain Mohammad Hafeez has said that the team will use pace to win the upcoming limited-overs series in India.
Hafeez's comments come at a time when India were handed a 10-wicket drubbing by England in the second Test in Mumbai, reports The Express Tribune.
"Historically our pacers have always troubled the Indian batsmen in India and this time also we will be banking on them to do the same thing again," said Hafeez.
"There is no doubt that Ajmal and Afridi are world-class bowlers but against Asian teams they have not had the same degree of success as opposed to other sides. The reason for this is simple. Asian batsmen grow up in conditions which spinners thrive in and therefore learn to cope with them from an early age. That is one reason why teams touring India always try to outgun the Indian team through their pace attack," he added.
Hafeez said the Pakistani fast-bowlers selected for the tour will have to be at their best.
"We have some exciting talent in the pace department and it is now up to the selectors to select the best lot," he said. (ANI)
