The captain acknowledged the crowd pressure in India but mentioned the team's experience in playing in packed stadiums in various countries.
Shahidi emphasized the team's approach of simplifying things and focusing on their own game.
He concluded by stressing the importance of concentrating on their performance rather than external factors.
