Lahore: Pakistan's bowling coach Mohammad Akram is likely to face the heat after the lacklustre showing by the pace attack in their recent 0-3 drubbing in the Test series against South Africa.
Sources close to the team have claimed the bowlers have little respect for Akram and primarily don't take his advice or tips seriously.
"The reason is Akram played few tests for Pakistan and with 17 wickets doesn't have an impressive international cricket background. Plus, when his appointment was made it was seen as a questionable one as there were other better candidates available. Also, there is talk that he got the job because of political pressure," a source said.
