Indian skipper Rahul Dravid and his Pakistani counterpart, Younis Khan, unvieled the trophy for the upcoming ODI series to be played between the two nations on Friday.

The stylishly-designed cylindrical trophy named as "Hutch Cup" would be up for grabs as the arch-rivals go head-to-head again, this time in the limited version of the game.

India would be looking to avenge its humiliating Test series loss against Pakistan in the wake of a huge 341-run defeat in Karachi.

Dravid has decided to limit their experimentations in ODIs, which many felt was the contributing factor for the downfall of the team in the series-decider.

"Post-mortem of the Test series shows that we'll have to play key players in positions suited to them," said the skipper.

The five-match ODI series will kick-off from Feb 6 in Peshawar, with the finals incidentally scheduled for Karachi on Feb 19.
