Pakistan coach Waqar Younis says fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar is still a shadow of himself and must prove he can be consistent after his three-wicket performance against Sri Lanka on his return to international cricket.

Despite being 34, Akhtar showed on Tuesday that he retains his customary long run up and much of his pace during the Asia Cup opener against Sri Lanka at Rangiri Dambulla Stadium.

Younis says Akhtar's match figures 3-41 should only be the start and that he must consistently perform well to prove himself.
