Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, though, said they weren’t looking at Pakistan as a “different side”. “If we did that, we would put pressure on ourselves,” he said. “When you take the field for any game, you want to win”.
But he sounded a note of caution. “We know Pakistan can be a dangerous side.”
With Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag missing, India will be depending on Tendulkar, Gambhir, Dravid and Dhoni to get the runs.
