Pakistan fitness trainer David Dwyer believes Shoaib Akhtar is in good shape for the Test series against India.
The Rawalpindi-born fast bowler struggled during the one-day series between the subcontinent rivals, but Dwyer insists it was not due to a lack of fitness.
"Maybe he does not look the same person but still he is bowling and bowling consistently at 150 kph," said Dwyer.
"I think he is in great shape."
Dwyer, however, admits it took a huge effort to get Shoaib into top condition.
"Oh yes, it takes hell lot of effort to make him fit," he added.
"We have looked at his history of injuries and so far he looks good. You have to consider that a lot of force goes through his body and it's same with other pacers as well."
The first Test between India and Pakistan starts in Delhi on Thursday.
