Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul Haq said he would love a win on his final England tour as his side fly out on Sunday for a tough two-and-a-half month tour.
Inzamam is leading the 15-men squad to England where they will play four Tests, five one-day internationals and side matches. "This would be my last tour of England so I want to make it memorable with a win," Inzamam said.
The 36-year-old master batsman made his Test debut at Edgbaston on Pakistan's tour in 1992 and has since played 109 Tests for Pakistan scoring 8,266 runs - second only to Javed Miandad's Pakistan record of 8,832.
Pakistan do not have a tour of England in the ICC future tour programme announced up to 2012. Inzamam said his side have prepared extensively for the tour and were in high spirits.
"We have had some good preparations for the tour and in all departments we are capable enough to achieve the best results in England," said Inzamam.
"If they have four to five players injured we too have two of our strike bowlers in Rana Naved-ul Hasan and Shoaib Akhtar injured so it's even when you enter the ground," said Inzamam.
Pakistan will wait on Naved's groin injury reports due on Wednesday in London before deciding who takes the final spot in the touring party.
