New Delhi: Former Pakistan captain Imran Khan feels that pressure could have a huge effect on Indian players as they embark on their journey to regain the cricket World Cup after 28 years.
"I must tell that Indian media puts huge pressure on the Indian players. It's difficult for them to play freely. I can understand the kind of pressure that Sachin Tendulkar goes through, its unimaginable. Everytime, I watch something on television, I feel that Sachin must be needing tranquilizers with the kind of expectations that's there," Imran told a gathering during an event organised by a news channel.
The event was also attended by former Indian captain Kapil Dev, legendary West Indian Vivian Richards, former Australian captain Allan Border, Pakistan batsman Zaheer Abbas.
