LAHORE - Controversial fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar is looking for the Australia series to improve his own and the countries image. Taking to journalists here at the Gaddafi Stadium on the second day of the training, he said that he return to the team was based on fitness. "I have passed my fitness test to stage a come back in the team and will hopefully to my best to get a win for the country," he said. "I have gained fitness and hopefully I would bowl the required quota of 10 overs during the matches of the series," he added. He further said that he liked to send positive sign around the world during the series. "I would like Pakistan to win the series and send a positive sign around the globe that our country is peace loving nation and save for international cricket," he added. Akhtar believes beating world champion later this month would send a message to the cricketing world. "If we beat Australia we can send a strong message that we are a good side and they should come (to Pakistan) and play against us more often," Akhtar said. "I know whatever happened (in Lahore) was not good for Pakistan," Akhtar said. "(But) this coming series is a good opportunity for us to beat a strong team like Australia, which may help us in inviting strong teams to Pakistan and take our country out of isolation. "Nobody can give a guarantee of fitness in international matches, but I have come into the side after passing a fitness test," he said. "I want to bowl my full quota of 10 overs and enjoy fielding. "Ponting is a great player and so is Hussey, they will surely be missed," Akhtar said. "But Australia has some very good players like Shaun Marsh and Michael Clarke but if the bowlers bowl to their potential, we have a chance to win the series. Akhtar also backed captain Younis Khan, who replaced Shoaib Malik as captain in January after Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan 2-1 in a limited-overs series. "Younis is a very popular man in the dressing room. He does work very hard and leads from the front," Akhtar said. "(Younis' captaincy) is the best thing that has happened to Pakistan and I am very happy with him. Pakistan leaves for Dubai on Sunday night and will play a practice match against Pakistan "B" at the newly built state-of-the-art cricket stadium in Dubai Sports City on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Pakistan skipper Younis Khan said on Friday that his team would be an easy opponent in the up-coming one-day series against Australia in the United Arab Emirates. Younis said that his team would beat Australia 5-0 in the forthcoming One Day International series in the UAE. He admitted that Pakistan has not played much international cricket in recent times, and it could affect its performance in the series. A three-day training camp of the national team began yesterday at the Qaddafi Stadium to prepare for the series. Coach Intikhab Alam is supervising the training session. In the first session, players' focus was on the fielding after physical training, while second session restricted to the net practice. Khan predicted series would kick-off wit fifty-fifty chances for the both teams. "We will put up a good fight against Australia whatever the results come," he said.
