India will face arch-rivals Pakistan in their first match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 on June 4. Pakistan batsman Haris Sohail feels that is motivation enough for his side.
The 28-year-old, who has been brought in as a replacement for Umar Akmal, Pakistan have had enough time to adjust to English conditions and should do well.
"We have had good preparation, we have had a good couple of days. It is a huge game against India, a really big game. But it is just a game.
"We are preparing ourselves for all of the hard matches. Our strength is our bowling and fielding and we are working on all these aspects of our game.
"It is difficult for us but we have had good preparation to adapt to English conditions but we have been here for 10 days before our first game and we have five days more before our first game,”Sohail was quoted as saying in a PTI report.
Rain at Edgbaston affected Pakistan's last warm-up game. Australia made 57 for one batting first in 10 overs.
