Kolkata, Nov 23 (UNI) Former Pakistani skipper Wasim Akram today said the current Pakistani team was still evolving and would be settling soon.

The former left-arm quickie said, '' When Pakistan came for the last full tour of India it had a mix of youth and experience. I was leading the side along with Salim Malik, Ijaz Ahmed, Inzamam-ul-Haq.

This is a young side with a young captain in Shoaib Mallik. They will need a little more time to settle down. '' Asked about the fate of the Test series, he said, '' India has had the advantage in the ODIs. The way they are playing they will surely hold the edge in the Test series too. But this young Pakistani side will give them a good fight, '' he added.

Asked who was the most impressive of the Indian bowlers, he said, '' S Sreesanth and R P Singh impressed me. But what is most heartening to see is how Zaheer Khan has made a comeback. '' '' Zaheer and me have a lot in common. I played for Surrey to hone my skills, and he went to Worcestershire to develop his. And now he is a fine bowler. Fast bowlers should play a season or two of county. '' On whether Sachin tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly should continue together, he said, '' There is no question of dropping any of them. They have a few more years of cricket in them.

They are the best judge of when they should give up. '' UNI
