Karachi: Feb 22, 2014

 

Pakistan ODI and Test captain, Misbah-ul-Haq is hoping that his team would carry their recent one-day winning streak in the 2014 Asia Cup  starting in Bangladesh.

 

According to The Dawn, Pakistan will face Sri Lanka on Tuesday, to defend the title they won under Misbah in 2012.

 

Having won the last two ODI series against South Africa and Sri Lanka in 2013, Misbah feels confident and said that they have got the edge to win the Asia Cup.

 

Misbah said that having won the last two series has made them confident, and even though Bangladesh could prove dangerous after beating India and Sri Lanka in the last Asia Cup, Pakistan would prove to be equally dangerous as well.

 

Other teams participating in the Asia Cup include five time champions India, host Bangladesh and Afghanistan as well.
