Islamabad, Oct 27(ANI): Pakistan skipper Younis Khan has said that he will be seeking revenge when they play against New Zealand in a ODI series starting next week in United Arab Emirates.
Pakistan had lost to New Zealand in the semifinals of the Champions Trophy in South Africa, a controversial loss that almost cost him his career.
"New Zealand did very well in the Champions Trophy and I hope we could avenge our defeat by playing as a team against them," The News quoted Younis, as saying.
Younis had to face harsh criticism following Pakistan's back-to-back losses to Australia and New Zealand to exit from the Champions Trophy.
He was pressurized from all sides to quit after he was accused of match-fixing in the games. The charges were later cleared.
Pakistan will play three one-day internationals on November 3, 6 and 9 in Abu Dhabi, and two Twenty20 internationals in Dubai on November 12 and 13, in a series, which was relocated to the United Arab Emirates over security fears. (ANI)
