Dubai:

Two summers ago India had crushed their ICC Twenty20 World Cup dream in a thrilling finale but Pakistan skipper Younus Khan is confident that this time his men would bring the trophy home when the biennial event takes place in England next month.

"We're looking forward to the event in England and we'd definitely like to take the trophy home with us. We had a good tournament in 2007 in South Africa, reaching the final but losing to India.

"This time around we want to go all the way and win it," Younus said on the sidelines of the unveiling of World Twenty20 trophy in Dubai on Wednesday.

Placed in the same group as hosts England, Younus said it would be a challenge to get past them but remained confident of a good show.

"We're excited about playing in England and being in a group with them and the Netherlands will provide its own challenges. It's always tough playing the hosts but I'm confident my side will do well," he added.

Also present on the occasion, Australian wicket-keeper Brad Haddin, who will captain the side for tomorrow's T20 against Pakistan, said, "I'm really looking forward to taking part in the summer's ICC World Twenty20 in England, the country where this format of the game was created."

"We've got a tough group stage with the West Indies and Sri Lanka in our pool but I'm confident we'll make it through. It would be great to be part of a team that adds the ICC World Twenty20 trophy to Australia's existing trophy cabinet," he added.
