Kolkata:Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq today expressed confidence of winning the fourth consecutive match against India when the two teams meet at the Eden Gardens here in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Platinum Jubilee One-day cricket match on November 13.

"We have won the last three matches against India and we are confident that if we play well we can beat them (Indians) the fourth time also," Haq told newsmen after arriving here this evening.

The Pakistani skipper, however, said India was a good team and Pakistani players would have to work hard to win.

Praising the strong Indian batting line-up, the Pakistani skipper said that his bowlers have the ability to measure up to the host willowers.

"Our bowlers are in good form and they only have to get into their rhythm in the match," Haq said.

Asked about the dew factor which always played a crucial role in the day-night match at the Eden Gardens, Haq said, "That may be there and both the teams will be affected but what can we do if conditions are such. We have to adjust".

To a query on the importance of winning the toss in the match he said, "Because of the dew factor the team batting second will face a problem".

Haq arrived with the 15-member Pakistani team from New Delhi by an Indian Airlines flight for the one-off match.

It is the first visit of Pakistani cricket team to India in five years.
