Confident to beat India: Hafeez

karachi: "I am very confident and positive that we have the team to beat India and win both the series," Hafeez stated.

Misbah conceded that matches against India are always high-pressure games for players from both sides.

"But being professional players we are supposed to live and adjust to this unique pressure and I will be telling all the players to go and just play positively on the tour," Misbah added.

Asked about the omission of experienced all-rounder Abdul Razzaq from both squads and that of flamboyant all-rounder, Shahid Afridi from the ODI squad, Misbah said both had served Pakistan cricket well.

"But people must remember that any decision related to dropping a senior player is not just because of the captain such decisions are taken collectively." Misbah said.

Hafeez also insisted that there was no conspiracy behind the axing of Razzaq.

"There is no doubt about the ability of Razzaq and his performances but the selectors selected the squads keeping in mind the conditions in India," he explained.
