We are well prepared for this match because India and Pakistan matches are exciting and demanding and the whole world watches it,” Babar said.”The whole team is positive so we are looking forward to the match. Not only me but all the players want to finish on a high, whoever hits form wants to win it.”advertisementAsked about India’s lethal attack led by world number one ODI bowler Jasprit Bumeah, he said, “No doubt, India have a good bowling attack but we have played well against England who also have a very good pace attack so all of us are confident the Indian pace attack will be properly handled.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Sri Lanka make official complaint to ICC about ‘unfair’ pitchesAlso Read | Mohammad Yousuf slams PCB for allowing families to stay with players ahead of India clashAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
