Karachi, May 29 (ANI): Pakistan cricket captain Younus Khan has said that his team could win the World Twenty20 Championship this time around.

Pakistan was defeated by arch rivals India in the final match of the inaugural World Twenty20 Championship by five runs in Johannesburg two years ago.

“We want to win the title. We have the talent, but it’s a tough competition where other eleven teams will do their best to finish at the top,” Khan said.

Khan hoped that his team carries on from where it left against Australia in the Twenty 20 match played in the UAE recently.

“We beat Australia in the Twenty20 match which was a good morale booster and then had a good conditioning camp and some practice matches which tuned us well for England,” he said.

Pakistan has the best winning ratio in Twenty20 games when compared to other top teams, as it has won eight of its last 11 international games, The News reports.

Pakistan would take on England on June 7 in its first match of the tournament which is scheduled to begin from June 5.

It would then take on Netherlands two days later.(ANI)
