`No burden on ‘World No.1’ Team to prove anything`

London: Indian fast bowler Zaheer Khan is confident that his team can continue the run as the World No.1 Test team over the four-match series against England.

“There is no burden on our team to prove anything. If we play good cricket we will win matches and then everything else will take care of itself,” a leading daily quoted Zaheer, as saying.

He further said that he has always enjoyed playing in England, as the conditions are good for his kind of bowling.

“I’ve got confidence from the previous tours I’ve had here as well as the county season I played, which makes me familiar with conditions. Whenever the weather is good it definitely provides that little bit extra for the seamers, which I really enjoy,” Zaheer said.

“This year I’m also looking to do the same thing as in 2007, I will use this practice game to get my body going and get into the zone, then carry on from there,” he added.

The first Test of the series starts on July 21 at Lord’s.
