|Event:||ICC Champions Trophy 2009/10|
DateLine: 17th September 2009
Pakistan skipper Younis Khan pleaded that the country accept match results sportingly and not suspect the intentions of the players.
"It really hurts us when people start to suspect our intentions. When false allegations are made while we are playing in a foreign land. It is disturbing for the team," Younis told reporters at National stadium.
Younis said his players were rattled by the allegations of match fixing that surfaced during the team's recent tour to Sri Lanka and are still to come out of it.
Younis also spoke about the Indian team and their strengths of being able to chase down long totals.
"But as captain, I want to change this trend. I want our team to chase a target against India and win against India in an ICC event. I would like to be known as the captain who changed history," he said.
Pakistan plays its opening match against the West Indies on September 23.
Younis said he would love to win the Champions Trophy for late coach Bob Woolmer.
"His family is in South Africa and if we win the Champions Trophy I will definitely go with the team to his home and share our moments with his family. It would be a fitting tribute to Bob," Younis said.
