Learn from Sachin: Akram to Pak team

Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has called on the Pakistani openers to seek inspiration and learn from the exploits of Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar.

Wasim, who is in Sri Lanka commentating on the World Cup matches, also expressed his frustration over Pakistan's performance against Zimbabwe on Monday.

The former fast bowler called on openers, Muhammad Hafeez and Ahmed Shahzad to learn the art of batting and building an innings from Tendulkar.

The two openers have failed to provide a single decent start to the Pakistan team in five matches of the World Cup and Wasim felt both needed to rethink their approach to batting.

Wasim said the Pakistani openers need to learn from Tendulkar that even in one-day cricket one needs to build an innings. He pointed out that Tendulkar was still going strong as he stuck to the basics well and didn't try anything extraordinary.
