Islamabad - Limited-overs captain Misbah-ul-Haq says he is determined that Pakistan will "once again rule the world" by winning the 2016 Cricket World Cup.

Pakistan last won the biggest prize in the one-day game 24 years ago, also in Australia.

Pakistan has never beaten India in any major ICC event and will be up against its arch rival in the opening match at Adelaide on Februay 15 before taking on the West Indies, Zimbabwe, United Arab Emirates, South Africa and Ireland in its remaining Pool B matches.

The World Cup trophy arrived in Lahore late on Tuesday on its 10th stopover across the globe and will next travel to South Africa before arriving in host countries Australia and New Zealand in November.
