Faheem Ashraf speaking to the media in Dubai:


"Before the Lahore training camp, we also trained hard in Abbottabad with the Army"

"We trained in hot weather in Lahore so that it would be easier to adjust to the head of Dubai"

"We are trying to get used to the conditions here as soon as possible so that we don't have problems in our first match"

"My job is to work hard and perform well, its the job of the coaches etc to pick me for the playing XI"

"Every Pakistani player has dreams and hopes of playing against India and to perform well in that match"

"Even without Virat Kohli, India are a world-class team and no one can take them lightly"

"As a player, I always want to take 5 wickets but it depends on my performance on that day"

"We have been playing all our home series in the UAE so we will have an advantage"

"But still, this is a big event so we will try our best to make use of home advantage and also give it 100% effort"
