Kolkata:Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has said that Pakistan would be under greater pressure by virtue of being the hosts of the historic series against India.

''It's always tougher at home. Pakistan will be under somewhat more pressure. However, having said that I must admit that it will not be an easy task for us. The pressure will be heavily on us too,'' Ganguly said.

The Indian skipper said that he was trying to stay focussed on the tour by not letting the hype surrounding the tour, starting on March 10, affect him. "I am trying not to be overwhelmed by external issues,'' he said.

But, he said in the same breath that the pressure factor could not be an excuse for the outcome. ''I am consciously trying not to get affected. In an case, being a professional I can't allow myself to get carried away by whatever may become the talking point,'' he said.
