Former spinner Mushtaq Ahmed has attributed India's poor run in recent matches to lack of bowling resources and advised Pakistan batsmen to target part-time Indian bowlers in the ongoing limited-overs series between the two sides.
"India has problems with their bowling and they are short of quality bowlers at this level for all formats. I think after winning the first T20 match Pakistan will now be very confident and they should target the Indian bowlers throughout the series," Mushtaq told 'Geo Super' channel.
Mushtaq advised Pakistan batsmen to target part-time Indian bowlers on whom they are heavily dependent and termed the ongoing series as the best chance to beat India at home.
"In the shorter format India is having problems because of dependence on part-time bowlers or all-rounders. Pakistan must target these bowlers.
"They played Yuvraj Singh very well in Bangalore like England did in the second T20 match. Yuvraj is not as dangerous when you play him on the back foot," Mushtaq, who is also England's bowling coach, said.
England recently defeated India 2-1 at home to win the four match Test series after a gap of 28 years. Indian batsmen failed miserably against a quality English bowling attack.
