Speed alone doesn't take wickets but when combined with good swing bowling it does. So we have spent 4 months working on Shafiul's outswing. His confidence is up so he will feel relaxed and bowl faster.

Shahadat's pace is definitely NOT down! He has bowled some quick balls in WC nets last few nights.
