Younis Khan, under whose leadership Pakistan won the Twenty20 World Cup this year, said he wants to win the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy or the 2011 World Cup during his tenure as captain.
Younis said his burning desire was to see Pakistan win either the Champions Trophy or World Cup in 2011 and to beat Australia and India in Test series.
“Every captain has certain targets in mind, mine is that we must win either of these two major ICC events until I am captain,” Younis told reporters at the start of the second phase of the Champions Trophy conditioning camp in Karachi on Friday.
“We also go to Australia later this year and we have never won a Test series there. I think we have the best chance of achieving this first time feat in the coming series. Beating Australia in Australia is something I have always dreamed off,” he added.
The senior batsman said Pakistan had a strong line up of players for every form of the sport but the real issue was to get them to click collectively.
“We have the players to win the Champions Trophy or World Cup and even beat Australia in Australia but we need to combine and click together,” he said.
Younis said a Test series against India was always a big thing for him and he hoped that while he was captain bilateral cricket relations with India would be revived soon.
