New Delhi, November 25 (UNI) King of swing and former Pakistan captain, Wasim Akram believes that India's three most experienced players Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid still have a lot to offer to their national team.

Akram speaking at an interview said, ''Those who were saying that the trio should be dropped are totally wrong. These guys are very fit at 34 (Sourav is 35). And they still have a lot to offer to the Indian cricket.'' Akram particularly praised Tendulkar for his off late batting efforts saying, '' He (Sachin) is in the form of his career. I've never seen him bat like this. It's entirely up to him to decide when he wants to retire.'' He believes that though the match being played at Feroz Shah Kotla is well poised but India still has an upper hand and are favourites to win the match and take a 1-nil lead in the three match test series.

''India are the favourites by the way they are performing. But everyday, the complexion of the game changes. It's too early to predict the winners. In an Indo-Pak contest, the players fight till the last minute,'' he remarked.

He was also impressed by the new look of this Indian pace attack and praised RP Singh for his recent success in Twenty20 and the recently concluded ODI series against Pakistan. ''RP is really impressive. He is sharp and swings the ball at a speed of 130-140 kmph.'' UNI
