Shoaib Akhtar said he has nothing against the bowling unit as the side is playing with T20 bowlers who need hard work to perform well in the Test format. 

The former cricketer added that the pitch is not helping the bowlers too.

Shoaib Akhtar added that the hosts need to score 700 runs and play two innings if they want to settle for a draw. He said it is a concern for the side that needs to be corrected.

The Rawalpindi Express added that the Ben Stokes-led side – with a long batting lineup – has been taking the attack to the bowlers right from the start since then. 

He said Pakistan should follow the same path, adding that it was disappointing to see young players getting hammered in the Test format, which he called brutal.
