Kolkata: Jan 4, 2013

Junaid Khan, the highest wicket-taker in the ongoing bilateral series between India and Pakistan said that while playing against Indian batsmen he doesn’t see whether he is bowling to Virender Sehwag or someone else.
 
“Their (India) batting is no doubt good. But you cannot think about how good they are. Instead, you have to go in there knowing how good you are. As bowlers, we don’t see if it’s Sehwag we’re up against or some other ordinary batsman,” Junaid was quoted as saying by bcci.tv.
 
Junaid is the highest wicket-taker in the series and he feels happy to have contributed.
 
“I thank to God because of whom we won this series. The people of Pakistan have prayed a lot for us. This was my first series against India and it feels amazing to not only end on the winning side but also contribute to the win. There can’t be a happier moment for either me or for the people of Pakistan.”
 
“Wasim bhai, Waqar bhai, Aaqib bhai, all these people have achieved great things. The young Pakistani fast bowlers have some phenomenal role-models to look up to. That’s why we keep producing good fast bowlers. We keep talking to these former fast bowlers and take tips from them. We gain so much from their experience and that helps us become better fast bowlers ourselves,” added Junaid.
 
Speaking about playing with Sohail Tanvir and Mohammad Irfan, Junaid said, “All of us have different strengths. Sohail Tanvir has a different action altogether, Mohammad Irfan’s height is his asset. I, more than anything else, concentrate on seaming the ball and picking wickets with the new ball. Thankfully, I was successful in doing that in both the matches of this series so far.”
 
Junaid added that Imran Khan is his bowling coach.
 
“I’ve always looked up to Imran Khan and I still follow him. But now I interact much more with Wasim bhai in terms of my bowling,” concluded Junaid.
