I am no under pressure in India as Pakistan coach: Whatmore
Bangalore: Guiding a Pakistani side to play against India on their home soil may be a pressure job but Dav Whatmore says he is comfortable doing his duties in the upcoming bilateral series since he has already worked with sub-continent players in the past.
The short Pakistan tour will begin with a Twenty20 match on December 25 here at Chinnaswamy stadium.
"There is no pressure on me as Pakistan coach as I have already worked with players belonging to India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and find them no different from each other. Their principles are pretty much the same," he said.
Whatmore further said his players have to be consistent to do well against a strong Indian side.
"We have shown our skills well in the past. We have also done well. What we need to do is to be a bit more consistent in our game and that`s what we are looking to do," he said.
Whatmore said it would be his first experience as Pakistan coach against India in a bilateral series and he is looking forward to it.
"We have played India in ICC events, but this will be my first experience, something which I am looking forward to," he added.
Replying to a query, Whatmore said both the teams are excited play against each other even though it`s a short tour.
"Yes it is sandwiched, but you all know that the Future Tour programmes and the amount of cricket countries play. It is nothing new. We are happy to be here and I am sure Indian team is also happy to play us," he said.
