If he keeps on doing that then we will find another great left arm fast-bowler of Wasim Akram type," he said.<br /> <br /> "Junaid is keen and not living in the past. He's living in the present and trying to improve. It's a good sign for Pakistani team," the veteran of 79 Test and 246 ODIs said.<br /> <br /> The ODI series marked a surprise return for Younis and the 35-year-old said there was no added pressure on him to perform at the Motera, even as he had a forgettable calendar in 2012 with 167 runs from 10 ODIs.<br /> <br /> "There's no pressure even before ODI. It was my comeback match but there was no pressure that if I don't score I would not play the next game," Younis, who scored a 58 in his comeback match, added.<br /> <br /> "I always try and improve my game to a level so that I can tell youngsters how to play."<br /> <br /> Younis has two centuries from two Test matches at the Eden Gardens and he hopes to do an encore in the ODI as well.<br /> <br /> "Allah karay aur eik century karoon. But I hope I play an innings that will help Pakistan seal the series," he said.<br /> <br /> The senior pro said the team was backing the youngsters and it's a good time to be in.<br /> <br /> "When youngsters come in team they try to perform. So we don't have big names but when a youngster gets a chance for a <a href="/tags/India/post" target="_blank">India</a>-Pakistan match, they try and achieve something," he said.<br /> <br /> "I always try to guide the youngsters. We all believe in sharing. Good teams are those who share good and bad times."
