LAHORE Fast bowler Muhammad Sami sees the recall for the World Twenty20 an opportunity to prove his self. He said that he was now looking forward to make his mark in World T20 Cricket Championship in West Indies. Its golden opportunity for me to prove myself. Under Shahid Afridi, who understand my strength to deliver my best in the West Indies, Muhammad Sami said on a television. I am lucky and delighted to be back in the national fold, he said. Muhammad Sami, who was among the reserves for the event was included in 15-member squad after injury to fast medium bowler Umer Gul. I have really worked very hard to improve my bowling in all brands of cricket after being out of Pakistan team for nearly two years. I have developed variety in my bowling and wanted to help the country in retaining their title, he remarked. During the training camp in Lahore boys played as a unit which he said was a great sign ahead of such a mega event, Sami who is only among the two world bowlers to have performed a hat-trick in Test and One Day Internationals, he said. There will be some pressure on me as I will be playing my first T20 game during the global competition. But I know the conditions in the Caribbean because of my past experiences and it will benefit me and team, 29-year-old Sami admitted. Despite some pressure I am capable of adjusting to the faster version of the game. I got to bowl four good overs for the team, he maintained. He said he had previously played under the show of Shoaib Akhtar but this time he with Muhammad Aamir will lead the attack. However, he said T20 is highly unpredictable version of the game and a couple of errors can prove fatal and each and every player of the team have to contribute in the success of the team. He said in Shahid Afridi Pakistan got an attacking captain, who likes to lead from the front and that will be key to success during the championship. He said Pakistan team has a bunch of talented cricketer young and aspiring cricketers with experienced all-rounder Abdul Razzaq. He said Pakistan batsmen are capable of playing their part and showing their firepower in the competition. Gul's 'honesty' draws praise from Afridi, Mohsin Umar Guls decision to withdraw from Pakistans Twenty20 World Cup squad due to a shoulder injury has drawn praise from captain Shahid Afridi and chief selector Mohsin Khan, who feel the pacer has set a good precedent by being honest about his fitness. Mohsin and Afridi confirmed that Gul had informed them that he was not 100 per cent fit for the mega-event because of his shoulder injury. It is a good gesture from a senior player and sets the right precedent for others to follow in future, Mr. Mohsin said. Umar told us that he was not 100 per cent fit in the camp and required more time to gain his full rhythm and fitness and that we should consider including someone else in his place for the World Cup, the chief selector added. I am 70 to 80 per cent fit at the moment but I do not think that is enough to play in an international event which demands 100 per cent fitness, Gul said. Everyone including the coaching staff was keen to have me on the team considering the fact that my bowling was of some help during the previous two editions of the World Twenty20. Majority of the stakeholders believed that I can regain fitness in 10 to 15 days but that is something that was entirely based on hope. he said. Gul said he did not want to hurt the teams chances by hanging on to his place despite not being fully fit. It was a risk that I think the country and the team was not in a position to afford. I think you can only stake a claim when you feel you are in a position to deliver. I may be able to regain fitness or could never have been in a position to bowl a single delivery in West Indies. That would have been a blow to the teams chances, Gul said. All-rounder Yasir Arafat was also ruled out of the World Cup because of a calf muscle injury and Muhammad Sami and left arm spinner Abdul Rehman were named replacements for the two unfit players in the Pakistan squad. The ICC World Cup technical committee yesterday approved the changes in the Pakistan team. Tanvir wants World Twenty20 final against India Pakistan fast bowler Sohail Tanvir says India and Pakistan are the most balanced sides in the world and he would like to see the arch-rival competing in the final of the World Twenty20 again. Indian had won the inaugural tournament in 2007 by defeating Pakistan, who won the second edition last year by humbling Sri Lanka. India and Pakistan will be top contenders as India have the most balanced side whereas Pakistan have specialist T20 cricketers. I wish India and Pakistan play the final again, Tanvir, who is not part of the Pakistan team due to a knee injury, said. The Pakistani paceman, who rose to prominence after his brilliant performance in the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League, said IPL has played an important part in improving Indias bench strength. They have options for every place which is visible in their performance level. IPL should be given credit for that. Local Indian players were most benefited from the league. They have got the best platform to get prepared for international cricket, the 26 year-old pacer was quoted by a website. Tanvir, who was part of the Rajasthan Royals in 2008, praised under-fire IPL commissioner Lalit Modi for the success of the T20 tournament but did not comment on the ongoing controversy. There is no doubt that Modi is instrumental in making IPL a huge success and what it is today. The IPL is his baby and no doubt he has done a lot for it. But as far as the recent controversy is concerned, I am not aware of it. The IPL is a revolution for Indian Cricket. Money is not the only factor but here you get a chance to play against the best cricketers, Tanvir said. Modi is facing an Income Tax Department probe for alleged financial irregularities and there are speculations that he would be either axed or asked to put in his papers in the IPL Governing Council meeting on April 26. Earlier, Pakistans Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi had come out in defense of IPL chairman, saying if Modi goes, the event will suffer his loss because he has played a big part in conceiving it and launching it. Tanvir expressed hopes of playing in the future editions of the IPL. Naturally its good to be a part of such a big league. I am emotionally attached to it as my career got a major boost after my performance in IPLs first season. I would love to play for Rajasthan Royals once again. I still feel attached to Shane Warne-led side, he said. Tanvir had emerged as the most successful bowler by taking 22 wickets in the inaugural edition.
