Waqar thrilled by T20 wins before Tests

60

Birmingham: Pakistan coach Waqar Younis was delighted with the morale-boost his side gained ahead of their Test series against Australia by sealing a 2-0 Twenty20 series win at Edgbaston.

The July 6 11-run victory meant Pakistan had beaten Australia twice in two days after the  July 5  23-run success at Warwickshire’s headquarters. It was a remarkable turnaround for Pakistan, now fielding a largely youthful side, after they’d lost all 12 of their previous matches against Australia across all formats, including a heart-breaking Twenty20 semi-final defeat in the Caribbean in May.
