. I really think that Pakistan can do wonders after the first Test to up to the second Test match. I wish them best of luck.

Earlier, Akhtar had urged Younis Khan, the batting coach, to refrain from statements like he did on England pacer, Jofra Archer. Younis said that Archer has the potential to trouble Pakistani batsmen, however, Shoaib Akhtar said that Younis should rather work on instilling his fighting spirit and fiery attitude into the team instead of giving pessimistic statements.
