Hashim Amla said the pressure of expectation would be high on hosts

South Africa's opening batsman Hashim Amla said the pressure of expectation would be high on hosts India when the two teams clash in their World Cup Group B match here on Saturday.
Stating that the home team would be under pressure to live up to the expectations of their fans, Amla insisted India may find it tough to counter the Proteas in front of their home crowd.

"I think the pressure will be more on India as there will be expectations. We have played in front of a big crowd before. Fortunately, it will not be a major problem," said Amla.
"We are looking forward to the big occasion. I think our guys will enjoy playing in front of a big crowd," he added.
