KARACHI (Agencies) - Wasim Akram is supporting Pakistans decision to drop Kamran Akmal and Abdul Razzaq for the upcoming tour of the West Indies. In an exclusive chat ahead of Indian Premier League season 4, Kolkata Knight Riders bowling consultant Akram said the changes in the Pakistan squad are steps in the right direction. "I think Pakistan have done the right thing to drop Akmal and Razzaq for the West Indies tour. Even Younus Khan and Umar Gul have been rested. These guys did not perform well in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. Pakistan are now trying to build a new team and that's fair enough" said Akram. Wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran dropped crucial catches against New Zealand in the league stage and an edge from Sachin Tendulkar in the semi-final. All-rounder Razzaq was also a major let down in both batting and bowling. Akram believes breeding youngsters is the way forward for Pakistan. "The way Pakistan performed in the semis I think these changes were bound to happen. Taufiq is a welcome inclusion after being in and out of the side for a while. There are few other youngsters that Pakistan have brought in and the new team looks good. I have always believed that Pakistan have abundance of talent and now is the time to use it," he said. Akram is upset that Afridi's recent remarks on Indias relationship with Pakistan players created quite a furore. Akram believes that Afridi should be very careful when talking on sensitive issues. "I don't know what happened to Afridi when he went home. He spoke so well after the semi-final. And I think Shahid should realize that he is the leader of a side where the game goes beyond boundaries," said Akram.
