Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has made minor adjustments to his stance for the forthcoming Pakistan tour and hopes to do well if his current form continues.

Talking to reporters after he got out 12 runs short of another first class century, Ganguly said "Yes, I have made minor adjustments to my stance. I am standing a bit more upright with minor adjustments to my backlift."

Asked if he was happy with his form, he said, "Yes, I batted well in both the innings and have also played well over the last four-five months.

"I hope to do well in Pakistan if my form continues and also with a bit of luck. I have performed for the past ten years and hope to do so this time also," said the former captain.

Asked if the tremendous media attention would exert pressure on him, he said "No pressure at all. One must understand that playing cricket is most important and for that one has to stay focused. There is a big difference between first-class and international cricket."
