Pak eyeing T20 match win following ODI whitewash by England: Misbah

Dubai , Thu, 23 Feb 2012 ANI

Dubai, Feb 23(ANI): Pakistan cricket captain Misbah-ul Haq has said his side is keen to redress the balance in a Twenty20 match following their whitewash in the one-day international at the hands of England.


"This is a very important series for us, more so because we won the Tests, they won the ODIs and now it's almost the decider," The Dawn quoted Misbah, as saying.


"And if you consider that this is World Twenty20 year, it's very important for us to come back. England will defend the title they won in the West Indies in 2010 when Sri Lanka host the fourth edition of the World Twenty20," he added.


His comments came after Pakistan was routed 4-0 by England in the one-day series in contrast to their 3-0 defeat in the preceding three-Test series.


Misbah wants his side to regain the upper hand and use the T20 match as a stepping stone towards the World Twenty20 tournament scheduled to be held later this year.


Meanwhile, England paceman Stuart Broad said his side would be using every opportunity to prepare them for the defence of their World Twenty20 title.


"Of course, we need to make use of every game we have because there isn't many leading to the World Twenty20. And that being in the sub-continent we need to really make use of these conditions," Broad said.


"It makes these games pretty important. We are not looking to these matches as a warm-up, we are looking to win this series and that is what we will be focusing on," he added. (ANI)
