Pakistan to deliver their best against England: Waqar

August 31, 2010 22:42 IST

Pakistan cricket coach Waqar Younis on Tuesday insisted that his team will perform to the fullest in the upcoming Twenty20 and One-Day series against England despite the 'spot-fixing' controversy surrounding the tour.

"We will try to get the team up again and make sure that we deliver the best we can in the next few games, that's all I can do," Waqar told Sky Sports News.

"There is no doubt it is a big challenge, but I will try to make the most of it and I'll try to make sure everybody is nicely focused on the games," he said.

Pace duo Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir and Test skipper Salman Butt will face questioning by the Pakistan Cricket Board on Wednesday over spot-fixing allegations.

Asif, Amir and Butt, who are in Taunton, preparing for Pakistan's tour match against Somerset, will be quizzed by Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt and the country's high commissioner.

Pakistan are scheduled to play two T20 games and five One-Day Internationals starting September 5.
