Pakistan team is capable of beating India in Champions Trophy, claims Younis Khan

Former Test cricketer Younis Khan said on Sunday, "Pakistani side has the ability to beat India in Champions Trophy as Pakistan has outperformed India in the past as well."
"Pitches look good and in my opinion, even 400 runs will be easily chased down in the Champions Trophy," said the former captain.
Younis Khan tipped Pakistan team to concentrate on fielding, in addition to bowling and batting.
"In modern cricket, fielding is the key for winning ODIs and T20 Cricket and Pakistan team must focus on fielding and grab every opportunity," he added.
He pinned hopes on Sarfaraz Ahmed to take Pakistani cricket team forward. "It's a great chance for Sarfaraz Ahmed to lead the side well and take Pakistan cricket forward and all will depend on him that how he leads the side."
He also emphasised the need to support all players so as to keep their moral up.
Pakistan will be facing its archrival India in its first match of the Champions Trophy on June 4.-Agencies
