Johannesburg [South Africa]:Despite taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match Twenty20 series against West Indies, Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur has called on his side to become more ruthless and achieve a rare clean sweep against the world champions in the third and final match, which will be played in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
The Sarfraz Ahmed-led side clinched the series against the Caribbean team following their nine-wicket win in the second T20 in Dubai. Pakistan had won the opening match by 16 runs.
It was for the first time that Pakistan have won two T20 matches in a three-match series and Arthur believes the series win is the first step in the right direction, five months after they were knocked out of the World T20 in India.
The South African coach insisted that his players had set some realistic goals for themselves and managed to achieve the same after losing an ODI series 1-4 against England.
“We set ourselves some realistic goals. First of all we want to play the brand of cricket that’s up with the task, we want players who can do the job and I think we went some way to finding out some players in this series who can do that,” Arthur was quoted as saying by Sport24.
Besides T20s, Pakistan will also play a three-match ODI series and three Tests, starting from September 30 in Sharjah. (ANI)
