Shoaib Akhtar says he is willing to coach fast bowlers from India

Shoaib Akhtar says he is ready to coach quick bowlers from any country – even if he was offered the role from India.

In an interview with a social networking platform, the fiery quick said he wants to try and help produce aggressive fast bowlers irrespective of any country.

When asked if the country was India, he replied: "I will definitely... My job is to spread knowledge. What I have learned is knowledge and I will spread it."

The two neighboring countries haven’t enjoyed the best of relations since their Independence, having last played a bilateral series in 2012-13.

Akhtar went on to add that he wanted to produce more talkative fast bowlers – who could get into the heads of opposition batters.

"I will produce more aggressive, fast and more talkative bowlers than the current ones, who will tell-off the batsmen in a way that you will enjoy a lot."

He also displayed his interest in coaching in the cash rich Indian Premier League.

Shoaib was a part of the inaugural IPL season, where he represented Kolkata Knight Riders but the cross border tensions meant that Pakistan players were barred from participating in the following editions.

He retired from international cricket in after the World Cup 2011. He holds the record for bowling the fastest-ever ball in cricket (100.23 mph), breaking the barrier in a World Cup match against England in Cape Town in 2003.
