Misbah-ul-Haq, Waqar Younis Target Top Test Spot for Pakistan.
Pakistan Skipper Misbah-ul Haq and head coach Waqar Younis on Saturday said they were aiming for Pakistan to claim the top Test spot as they left for a Test and one-day series against Sri Lanka.
Pakistan, currently third in the Test rankings, briefly attained world number two in 2006 but have never been number one.
Misbah said Pakistan could take the top spot if they won in Sri Lanka and against Australia in October.
Pakistan opens the tour with the first of two Tests in Galle starting from August 6th. They will also play three one-day matches.
Misbah predicted a close series with Sri Lanka, who Pakistan has played in five series in as many years.
