Left arm medium pace bowler Sohail Tanvir believes that Pakistan does not need to indulge in sledging to scalp star India batsman Virat Kohli's wicket.

He says his team has enough firepower to dismiss him when the teams meet at next month's World Cup.

Commenting on the use of sledging, Tanvir said Pakistan have enough bowling options to get Kohli out and don't need to rely on sledging, Pak Passion reported.

However, he also warned his teammates that there are six other Indian batsmen to contend with, and they can singlehandedly win the game for India on a particular day, the report added.

Tanvir has not been included in Pakistan's squad for the World Cup, in Australia and New Zealand, which gets underway on February 14.

Pakistan open their World Cup campaign against arch-rivals India on February 15 in Adelaide.
