For India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni the India-Pakistan series does not assume any special importance and its simply “just another series”.

“It does not matter whether you are playing Australia, Kenya or Pakistan. You have to go in there and give your 100per cent,” he told reporters on the match eve here on Monday.”I have played a lot of matches against Pakistan. Led the side a couple of times in the Twenty20 World Cup. There is not much of a difference captaining against any team,” he added. Incidentally pakistan coach Lawson described the upcoming series as “Bigger than the Ashes”.

Dhoni feels that both teams have a “very good” bating line up but India are ahead in bowling. Asked whether Shoaib Akhtar led Pakistan pace attack poses any threats, he replied they have a good bowling attack. they have several players who bat and bowl well.

“If you compare the two sides you will see they are more or less similar in strength. Both the teams have lots of options. but i think our bowling attack is better. we have to improve our fielding and running between the wickets.” he added.
