And when it comes to aggressiveness, who is more than Shahid Afridi.
Akhtar, titled as Rawalpindi Express for his speed, recommended Afridi as the suitable choice for the mega event.
Pakistan Cricket Board is making efforts to turn Pakistan team into a lethal squad for World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand.
Earlier, rumours were on that Afridi could replace Misbah; however, PCB chief Najam Sethi weighed into balance of Misbah.
But Akhtar sees the matter from a different angle.
“An aggressive team could be winner and to turn team into the aggressive squad, it would enough to make Afridi captain,” he commented.
