Pakistan skipper Younis Khan is now targeting game’s other formats to garner success. The right-hander has refused to bask in the glory of the team's ICC World Twenty20 triumph. In an interview with the Geo Super Sports channel, Younis said though he is happy guiding the team to the Twenty20 World Cup win in England, he had other cricket ambitions as well. "I have a burning ambition to be at Australia and South Africa in Test series. I am happy we won the Twenty20 World Cup and brought happiness for our nation but we need to look ahead," he said.
The skipper said he felt T20 is a lot about chance but he thought his team had the potential to win at least one more major event in the coming days. "The Champions Trophy in September and the 2011 World Cup are two big tournaments and I am looking at them. Because I think the team can win one of them definitely," he said.
The middle-order batsman was confident in saying that Pakistan would be under no pressure in the Champions Trophy in South Africa in September. "No, I don't think the pressure would be on us it would be on other teams. Because they fear us now they say what sort of team is this. They were not even qualifying for the Super Eights stage and are now the Twenty20 World champions," he said.
