Karachi, Dec 23 : Pakistan cricket coach Mohsin Khan has reckoned his team can beat any side in the world and has a very good chance of defeating England if the players put in their hard work with a fighting spirit.
Pakistan, who has not lost any Test or One-Day International series this year, will face England in three Tests, three Twenty20s and four One Day International matches from January 17 onwards.
“England are top of the table and the most balanced team in the world in all departments. Their batting and bowling have been superb and they’re also one of the best fielding sides in the world,” The Express Tribune quoted Mohsin, as saying.
Mohsin, however, said his team would not start the tournament as underdogs.
“It will be our toughest test, but we have a chance of doing well. We have the talent to beat top teams. We have shown good team spirit as well as the grit. By maintaining the same, I am confident that we can obtain very good results against England,” he added.
Mohsin also lauded his team for defeating Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and described it as a ‘huge achievement’ due to ‘teamwork’.
He also confirmed that the players’ conditioning camp would be held ahead of the England tour.
“We will finalise the schedule and venue of the camp shortly,” he added.
Mohsin said he is ready to serve as coach for the England series despite uncertainty looming over his future.
“I am happy that the board has shown faith in me by retaining me as coach. With dignity, I am ready to serve my country, even if it’s for a single day,” he said. (ANI)
