LAHORE Pakistan coach Intikhab Alam has pointed out that a clean sweep against New Zealand would be the right answer to critics of Pakistans defeat in the Champions Trophy semi-final. New Zealand defeated Pakistan by six wickets in the semi-final of the Champions Trophy in South Africa to move to the final against Australia. Pakistan has the potential to beat New Zealand fair and square, said Intikhab before the teams departure to the UAE from Lahore airport early Friday morning. The coach said that Pakistan would opt for regular openers in the one-day and Twenty20 matches in the UAE and the changes would only be made according to the requirement of the team. The Kiwis have to prove that their win in the Champions Trophy semi-final was not a coincidental one and hopefully they would have to fight for a win this time round, he added. Pakistan bowling attack is strong but the batsmen too have to play their part, he said. Intikhab said that a comprehensive win in the series in UAE would give required boost to the team ahead of the Test series in New Zealand. The team management and the players have a detailed meeting to lay out a strategy for the series and every player has been reminded of his duties in the team. But changes in the plan would be made according to the conditions in the UAE. We have Saeed Ajmal and Shahid Afridi to fill the spinning department while in Test matches, return of Mohammad Asif would give strength to the attack. Cricket is not like football in which the coach shouts from the boundary line giving tips to the players and dictate them their position. Here proper planning is done before the game and even then any players gets out for his own negligence its not the others fault, he stressed. Intikhab further stated: Despite all the odds we should not be taking New Zealand lightly and all the players have to give their best to ensure win. Younus is a regular captain of the team while all-rounder Shahid Afridi will lead Pakistan in T20 matches. The coach denied reports of differences within the team. He said the team comprised of the best talent and fully capable to beat Kiwis in one-day matches as well as in the Twenty20s. He said that the team is well balanced and experienced enough to give the Kiwis a tough fight. The players are fully confidence and eagerly waiting for the series, which would provide them a perfect opportunity to give the fans something to cheer. The boys are all focused and want to win the series in a convincing manner, he added. Pakistan will begin the series in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday with the first of three one-dayers against the Kiwis. Dubai will then host two Twenty20 Internationals.
