A comprehensive win over Hong Kong is a perfect start but Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed says his team will have to raise the game by several notches to outwit arch-rivals India in the much-awaited Asia Cup clash on Wednesday.
Pakistan defeated Hong Kong by eight wickets Sunday night. Sarfraz said his team needs to iron out a few things before the clash against India.
"As a captain, I saw a couple of things which we should work on. For us to go the distance in the tournament, we should have won this game (against Hong Kong) by nine or 10 wickets.
"We also need to bowl better with the new ball. We need to get early wickets with the new ball. It's a good win but to win against India we have to be at our best in all the three departments," Sarfraz added.
