Dubai, May 7 (ANI): Pakistan still regrets losing to India in the final of the ICC Twenty 20 World Cup two years ago, as captain Younis Khan has said that he will make sure that his side wins the trophy this time around.

“We’re looking forward to the event in England and we’d definitely like to take the trophy home with us. This time around we want to go all the way and win it,” The News quoted Khan, as saying.

Speaking on the sidelines of the unveiling of the World Twenty20 trophy here, Khan said his team was looking forward for the mega-event which is scheduled to be held in England in June this year.

With Pakistan and England lying in the same group for the tournament, Khan hoped that his side will do well against the hosts.

“We’re excited about playing in England. It’s always tough playing the hosts but I’m confident my side will do well,” he said.

Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin, who was also present on the occasion, said he was also looking forward to the tournament, and wishes to add the Twenty20 World Cup trophy to their existing list of World Cup trophies.

“We’ve got a tough group stage with the West Indies and Sri Lanka in our pool but I’m confident we’ll make it through. It would be great to be part of a team that adds the ICC World Twenty20 trophy to Australia’s existing trophy cabinet,” Haddin said. (ANI)
