Former coach Mohsin says beating Oz would give Pak confidence ahead of T20 WCAug 7, 2:47 pm
Islamabad, Aug. 7(ANI): Former Pakistan coach and player Mohsin Khan has said beating Australia in their upcoming series in the United Arab Emirates would give a confidence boost to the team ahead of the Twenty World Cup in Sri Lanka.The announcement of a series to be played in the searing summer heat in the UAE was initially met with a lot of pessimism from Australian players, and Mohsin admits the weather is going to play a big part in the series, but added that the professionalism of Australian players would eclipse all these factors."The conditions won't be easy for Australia, especially because of the high temperatures in the UAE during these months. However, they are going to play day-night matches which are an advantage," Mohsin said during an interview with Pakpassion.com."I must add that the Australians are committed to their profession and they are mentally and physically so tough that they manage to adjust themselves everywhere. They are true professionals and I think they will manage to cope with the conditions to a great extent," he added."Beating Australia will help Pakistan gain confidence ahead of the World Cup. The weather in Sri Lanka and the UAE are similar in the sense that both places are quite hot," he said.Mohsin further added: "But the climate of both the venues differs in terms of humidity - UAE has dry heat while Sri Lanka has a humid climate. Heat is the common factor though. So I think it's good for Pakistan that they're going to play a series in the UAE before the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka." (ANI)
