Pacer Junaid says Akram's cue on Indian batsmen's 'weaknesses' helped Pak win series

Islamabad, Jan. 8 (ANI): Pakistani pacer Junaid Khan has said revealed that Wasim Akram's inputs about the Indian batsmen's "weaknesses" helped him get eight wickets in the just-concluded three-match ODI series.

The Nation quoted 23-year-old Junaid, as saying that it was Wasim Akram who had told him to develop the incoming delivery which would be his weapon against the Indian right-handers.

In Junaid's words, when a player like Virender Sehwag gauges the length of the away-going deliveries, the opposition can be "murdered". However, when he did his homework, Junaid said he found out that Sehwag has a problem with the ball that comes in. He then started working hard on that incoming delivery with chief bowling coach M Akram, Junaid added.

In the three matches, Junaid got Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh bowled out once, and Virat Kohli thrice. (ANI)
