Shoaib Akhtar returns to competitive cricket by Abdul Habib 4th February 2010 Speaking exclusively to Cricistan.com, KRL fast bowler Mohammad Irfan revealed that Shoaib Akhtar is currently in training with the KRL squad. Akhtar has been recovering from a liposuction operation but he's now fully fit and will be playing in the upcoming RBS ODI tournament to prove his fitness ahead of the T20 World Cup. Irfan said that Akhtar looks to be in very good shape and has been bowling in the nets for the last two days. Akhtar remembered the 6'10 Irfan from their meeting at the Lahore NCA and he commented on how much Irfan had improved since then. Despite Akhtar being focused on his own training he still had time to answer questions from Irfan and for an impromptu coaching session. Irfan told Akhtar that he was working on his outswinger and would appreciate some tips, so Akhtar gave him some advice and watched him put it into practise in the nets. Irfan managed to get the ball moving out and Akhtar was impressed with how quickly he picked it up. Irfan said he'll keep practising with the tips that Akhtar gave him. Irfan is really excited about bowling alongside Akhtar during the upcoming RBS ODI series. KRL now boasts the world's fastest bowler and the world's tallest bowler in the same team, it'll be interesting to see how the other sides cope against these two bowlers.
