Blunt Advice of Pakistan's Great to Indian Pacers at the Finals of the WTC

 which is going to start on Wednesday. The world's No. 1 team, India, is going to take on second-placed Australia in the final of the WTC at The Oval on June 7, as the 2021–2023 cycle of the competition comes to an end with the mega clash. Neither of the two teams have played Test cricket in the last two months as most of the players were busy in the IPL, and the change in format will be swift, along with the change from the white Kookaburra ball to the red Dukes.

Akram is hoping that the attack of the Indian fast bowling unit, with Mohammad Shami as the spearhead and the wily Mohammed Siraj as a certain starter, will be wise with their tactics on the field.

Wasim said, "These guys are experienced, and they shouldn't get carried away with the new ball. We all know it swings for 10 to 15 overs, so don't give away extra runs in the first 10 to 15 overs as a fast bowler. He also said, "Don't get too excited if there is a bit of bounce, as that is what the Australians want."

"This pitch normally favours teams from the sub-continent, but whenever we toured here, it was always at the end of August or start of September. This one is in June; the square is different, a fresh square, and the ball is different altogether as a Dukes," said Akram.
