Shoaib Akhtar ready to be a bowling coach

LAHORE - Controversial former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar threw his hat into the ring on Friday to become Pakistan's next bowling coach.
Pakistan have been hunting for a bowling coach since appointing Australian Dav Whatmore as head coach in March, with former Essex paceman Ian Pont the leading contender.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) set up a three-man committee to find a suitable candidate but so far nothing has been finalised.
"I am ready to be the bowling coach for Pakistan," Akhtar, 37, told reporters. "If the PCB contacts me then I will offer my services."
The paceman, whose career was plagued by fitness and discipline problems, retired from cricket after the World Cup last year and has since been involved in business.
He took 178 wickets in 46 Tests and 247 in 163 one-day internationals.
"It's an honour to serve the country and it can be done by helping the upcoming bowlers. It will give me a chance to pay back what the country has given me," said Akhtar.
Pakistan face Australia in a limited-overs series in the United Arab Emirates from August 28, with three one-day internationals and three Twenty20s.
Akhtar said Pakistan will miss fast bowler Umar Gul, not selected for the ODIs.
"Both Gul and Brett Lee will be missed in the series," said Akhtar. "But it will be a good series and bowlers will play a key role in the series."
Lee, considered as quick as Akhtar, retired from international cricket last month.

The 30-year-old left-hander was named in a 15-man squad for the tournament to be played from September 18 to October 7.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Lakshmipathy Balaji, Ashok Dinda, Rohit Sharma, Piyush Chawla, Harbhajan Singh, Manoj Tiwary.
Yuvraj, who completed chemotherapy in the United States in April, has not played competitive cricket since two home Tests against West Indies last November.
He only recently began light training at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
"It is good to see Yuvraj back. He is fit and has fought his way back," said chairman of selectors Krishnamachari Srikkanth.
"He has been one of the most important members of the Indian team. With this combination, we have a great chance to win the World Twenty20."
A delighted Yuvraj tweeted that it seemed he was making his debut all over again.
"Can't explain how I feel!" Yuvraj wrote.
"Feels like I'm going to play for India for the first time. Its a special day for me.
"When I was diagnosed with cancer I always thought in my heart that one day I will come back and play for India. So here I am ready to represent my country once again.
"Its a huge honour. I can't wait to step on the field and wave the Indian flag!"
Yuvraj played a key role in India's 50-over World Cup triumph last year, scoring 362 runs and taking 15 wickets in nine matches to be named man of the tournament.
The squad also includes off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.
