Waqar vows to bring back trademark 90`s agression to win T20 WC
Lahore: Pakistan coach Waqar Younis insists that the national team needs aggression and firepower to win the forthcoming Twenty20 World Cup in the West Indies.
"I will try to induct the same kind of aggression and fire in the team, which was Pakistan`s trademark in 1990s as it is necessary for us to win and retain the title," The Dawn quoted Waqar, as saying.
"The boys have put in plenty of hard work during training camp. They look very much in form and rhythm to deliver and defend the title," he added.
When asked who will be the favourites for the tournament, the 38-year-old said that it would be very difficult to predict a winner.
"Twenty20 is a different type of cricket where no one can predict anything, but it is important to perform to your potential...you have to bowl, bat and field well on the given day in order to win the match," he added.
The entire squad, except for fast bowlers Mohammad Sami and Mohammad Asif, and eight officials left from Lahore for the West Indies via Dubai and London.
Sami left for the West Indies from Karachi via New York, while Asif boarded a direct flight from Lahore to London, as he is banned from travelling to Dubai.
