'Single session may decide outcome'
Former Pakistan Test captain and batting legend Saeed Anwar has said that a single session in the forthcoming Indo-Pak Test series can decide the outcome of the match.
"To my mind it will be a tough and even series and in the Test series one or two bad sessions will decide the outcome of the match. Touring India is not easy for other teams but for Pakistan things are different because the culture, pitches and playing conditions are very much similar and it's not difficult to adjust there," The News quoted Anwar as saying.
Anwar said that though the present team visiting India was not as strong as the one that visited India in 1999, the series would be an evenly contested one and it would be a mistake to write it off.
"This squad is not as strong as the Pakistan team that went to India in 1999. But it has some talented players and there is balance in the batting, pace, spin and fielding departments. Importantly there is spirit and the boys want to do well," Anwar added.
