Former Test captain Krishnamachari Srikkanth today said India could beat Pakistan in Pakistan for the first time on their upcoming tour next month. "In 1978-79 we lost, in 1984 the series was truncated, in 1989-90 we drew the series. I am sure in 2004, India under Sourav Ganguly will beat Pakistan in Pakistan," Srikkanth said. The swashbuckling opener of yesteryears said the current Indian team had proved it could win Tests not only at home but on foreign soil as well.
"The present team has proved it can do well outside India. The recent Australian tour is a proof," said the 42-year-old former captain, at the launch of 'LG Captain of India' campaign of LG Electronics India.
"The biggest advantage of the current team is that the batting is set. It is not a team of one player any more," he said.
India are to play five one-day internationals and three Tests in the upcoming series from March 11 to April 17.
India are yet to win a Test in Pakistan. They have so far played 20 matches over five series in the last 50 years, and drew five and lost 15 of them. (PTI)
