Thursday, May 24, 2007

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates: Pakistan assistant coach and team manager Talat Ali said their 2-1 one-day series triumph over World Cup finalists Sri Lanka here will be a turning point in Pakistan cricket.

The former Test batsman, who is at the helm of team in absence of a full-time coach, said,

"Winning the first two matches and series here against Sri Lanka is a turning
point and for the good of Pakistan cricket.”

After the disastrous show of Pakistan in the World Cup, he believes captain Shoaib Malik and company has done hard work to achieve positive result here.“

The team had under-performed and was down. However, the boys have been working
very, very hard, both during the short camp as well as here on the tour,”

Talat told Gulf News.

Pakistan won the first One-day International (ODI) by five wickets, series-clinching second by 98 runs while Sri Lanka won the third match by 115 runs.
