Regarding India's performance at the World Cup so far, Misbah said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men had performed like defending champions so far.
Misbah said that India are the defending champions and it is the biggest motivation for them, adding that they have been playing in Australia for last three months which has helped them in preparations for the World Cup.
The skipper claimed that India is quite an experienced team and have been playing the last couple of years with the same squad.
India beat Pakistan by 76 runs in their opening match at Adelaide on February 15 but before the possibility of revenge presents itself, Pakistan would have to get past Australia in the quarterfinals on Friday, the report added.
