Hafeez 'not wary' of experienced Dhoni

Pakistan's captain said his aim would be to see that his side express themselves as much they can.

Islamabad, Dec. 24 (ANI): Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez has said he is not wary of his experienced Indian counterpart Mahendra Singh Dhoni, and said as a skipper his main aim would be to motivate his players not to buckle under pressure in the limited over series which starts in Bangalore on Tuesday.

Hafeez said that Dhoni is a far more experienced captain than him and Misbah-ul Haq. He, however, added that every captain has to face challenges and his aim would be to see that his side plays without any pressure and express themselves as much they can, reports The Nation.

The much-anticipated bilateral series between India and Pakistan starts with the first of the two Twenty20 Internationals at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. Apart from two Twenty20 Internationals, India and Pakistan will also play three ODIs in the bilateral series.

Hafeez said Pakistan is here to play good cricket and winning and losing doesn't make any difference to his side. He also rued the fact that cricket playing nations refusal to tour the Pakistan country due to security reasons has deprived the country from hosting any international matches for the last three years. He, however, hoped that cricket will return to Pakistan soon.

Hafeez said the visiting Pakistan team has no issues with the security arrangements in India and they love touring the country.
