Bangalore: Batsman V V S Laxman said on Wednesday that India was under no pressure going into the One-day series against England despite the visitors holding the upper hand in the last two Tests."I don't think we are under pressure," Laxman, who is leading the India 'A' team in the Hero Honda N K P Salve Champions Trophy tournament, told reporters here."Every game is a fresh game", he said but hastened to add that England is a good side and the coming One-day series is going to be challenging.Sounding excited about being made captain of India 'A', he said he is looking forward to the assignment. "It's a great opportunity. I enjoy leading a side."On his batting form during the test series against England, Laxman said he was batting well but only thing is that he was not able to convert the starts into big ones. "I am looking for more runs."Regarding the tournament starting on Thursday, he said it's a very important one since it's the first major cricket event in the New Year. PTI
