Dubai: Former Pakistani skipper Wasim Akram believes India will come back stronger from the Australian tour and will pose a big challenge to Pakistan in the forthcoming series.

The Indian team will be a very tough side especially after the series in Australia. By the time they come back, they would have improved a lot." Akram said.

"Whether they lose or win in Australia their confidence will be sky high. So, Pakistan will have to start their homework now, as there will be a lot of pressure on them. They ought to really do well if they have to beat India," he told Gulf News in an interview.

India is scheduled to tour Pakistan soon after it returns from Down Under but the itinerary has not been finalised yet.

The tour would be India's first in a decade and will be the first bilateral series between the two neighbours after the Government suspended all sporting ties with Pakistan following the terrorist attack on the country's Parliament in December 2001.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), which is facing heavy financial losses, has proposed to play three Test and seven One-Day Internationals during the tour.
