Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has said that his side would look to utilise their experience of playing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) against India in the upcoming Asia Cup cricket tournament.

The 31-year-old further acknowledged that Virat Kohli-led Indian side are a relatively strong team as far as overall experience is concerned.

“Our team has relatively more experience of playing under UAE conditions and therefore we will try to take advantage of this experience in our Asia Cup match against India,” Dawn.com quoted Ahmed, as saying.

“On the other hand, Virat Kohli-XI is a stronger outfit as far as overall experience is concerned,” he added.
