Younis Khan thinks that the forthcoming Champions trophy is the opportune moment for his team to get even with the loss they suffered against the Indian team both in world cup of 2003 and 2007.

He suggested that beating India would be his top priority in champion’s trophy in the opening game for both teams in Centurion on Saturday. Although going by the track record of the both teams it would not be easy to beat India but record of Pakistant team is better than India in South Africa.

Pakistan team has lost to India in world cup match but the defeat is still hurting and it is Pakistan's captain burning ambition to take the revenge of defeat in champions trophy. Younis Khan who was speaking at a press conference said that "It hurts. I played that match. We scored 270 and still lost. A score of 250 in these conditions is considered safe. But the way Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag batted, and backed by Rahul Dravid and Yuvraj Singh, we lay beaten. That defeat still hurts, indeed, we have lost to India in most of these ICC matches except only once. Ab hamara bhi jeetne ka haq banta hai (Now it is our right to win)". Younis sustained injury in practice but described it minor injury. “It’s little fracture. Nothing serious! We will assess it on Monday. Hopefully it should be alright.”
