LAHORE - Pakistan team coach Intikhab Alam believes that the fitness of pacer Shoaib Akhtar without surgery seems difficult and the bowler will be given time to prove his match fitness for selection in the team. Talking to journalists, he said that the weather in the UAE is quite warm and bowlers like Akhtar need to be double fit to stay into rhythm. "Akhtar got treatment without taking the medical panel of the board into confidence and his past performance would also be considered along with his fitness before taking him in the team." On Mohammad Yousuf, Pakistan coach said that the star batsman did not take the board into confidence while joining the ICL and leaving it and the board would take the decision for his selection.
