New Delhi: Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has criticised the Indian bowling attack terming it as an unit that "lacks depth" as the only wicket-taking bowler is off-spinner R Ashwin.

"There is no depth in the bowling attack. Once Ashwin bowls his quota of four overs, there isn't anyone, who could run through opposition batsmen. They don't even have the fast bowling to run through the batting line-up. Indian team's drawback is fast bowling and the second spinner," Akhtar told ABP News on India's T20 series defeat against South Africa.

"With Mohammad Shami unfit and Umesh Yadav not selected, they didn't have any inspiration," said the fearsome fast bowler of yesteryears.
