Veteran Pakistan batsman Misbah-ul-Haq believes rising stars Umar Akmal and Mohammad Aamer provide an exciting boost to the squad.
Akmal started off day three of the Test series against Australia with a half-century while 17-year-old Aamer ended it by dismissing Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey.
Akmal's knock marked his fourth half-century in only his fourth Test match to follow up the ton the 19-year-old scored on debut in New Zealand last month.
"He (Akmal) is an exciting player and he just wants to dominate any bowling," said Misbah.
"In particular, it's really good to see him dominating the Australian attack and I think he has a big future ahead.
"He loves to play under pressure and he loves the challenges, I think that's really good for Pakistan."
Paceman Aamer dominated two sessions later as Pakistan's most effective bowler in the home side's second innings as he claimed 2-43.
"I think he (Aamer) is a really (exciting) prospect for Pakistan, a guy who is bowling 150km (an hour) is always an asset for the team," added Misbah.
"He's batting well and so he is a good asset for Pakistan."
However, Misbah admitted his team needed to tighten up their use of the referral system after Aamer and Abdur Rauf wasted two unsuccessful challenges when they each contested a declined lbw appeal which was evidently not out.
When asked who took charge of the referrals in the team, Misbah confessed there was no clear candidate.
"I think the bowler, the wicketkeeper and the captain," he said.
"Unfortunately it's not working well for us."
