India Under-19 open their campaign in the ICC World Cup 2014 as they take on the arch rivals Pakistan at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Saturday.  India Under-19  captain Vijay Zol said his team was not under pressure against Pakistan in the World Cup opener as they had beaten the arch-rivals twice in the recently-concluded ACC Under-19 Asia Cup.

“Match against Pakistan is a different ball game, but we are in a good position. We have beaten them twice. The league match in Asia Cup was exciting and was anybody’s game, but we beat them convincingly in the final,” Zol told reporters on the eve of their tour to Abu Dhabi to play the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014.

 

India, the three-time champions (2000, 2008 and 2012), have been clubbed with Pakistan, Scotland and Papua New Guinea in Group A. They will open their campaign against Pakistan on February 15 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

 

Talking about adaptability, Zol said the team had never played in Abu Dhabi but was confident of adjusting to the playing conditions.
