Imran Khan said he used to feel sorry for India in his playing days because they used to be under so much pressure against his team. Conceding that India now have a better cricket team than Pakistan, the former captain said his team on the other hand had made a habit of beating India.
“In our days, I used to feel sorry for the Indian team. We used to beat them so often they used to be under a lot of pressure (against Pakistan). When I used to go to toss with their captain, I would look at his face and there would be fear,” Imran Khan said at a recent public event.
