Lahore knock gave confidence in playing on subcontinent: Collingwood

Written by: Staff

Nagpur, Mar 2 (UNI) Paul Collingwood, who cracked his maiden century to help England score a challenging 393 against India said the knock of 96 in the Lahore Test versus Pakistan gave him the confidence to play in these surfaces.

Talking to reporters after the day's play, Collingwood said though he was relieved to get his first Test century here today, the knock at Lahore was more important as it gave him confidence of performing well in the sub-continent.

Mainly known as a one-day player, Collingwood hoped this century would make people sit up and accept him as a Test player also.

Speaking about batting with the tail, he said he was used to it having done it in county cricket. He added that all the three (Hoggard, Harmison and Panesar) played really well and that propelled him to complete his first Test century.

Collingwood also praised Steve Harmison, saying that the way he attacked the Indian bowling took the pressure off him.
