“The guys look focused and relaxed as well. I look forward to that kind of environment. If that happens, you perform better.”

Asked what are the areas he is focusing on to come up with a good performance, Irfan said: “Every area. Bowling with the new ball, bowling in the death overs, bowling in the middle-overs as well as batting.

“The more matches I play, the better I am going to get with my rhythm.”

He is also looking to gain something from Dale Steyn. “He is world’s number one bowler in any format. His energy is a treat to watch. He is consistently performing well and there is something special in him. I will definitely try and pick his brain and try to get something out of it,” he said.
