When enquired about the recent lacklusture performance of the Pakistan cricket team, he said the squad has the ability to defeat top teams of the World, but needs some fine tuning.
He expressed hope that Pakistan will put-up an improved show in the forthcoming Test series against Sri Lanka under the leadership of Younis Khan.
