He didn't think so

In an article on the supposed resurgence of pace bowling worldwide, Lawrence Booth writes (of TA Sekhar of the MRF Foundation):
Sekhar is particularly proud of the improvement made by Mohammad Asif, who reportedly amazed onlookers when he returned from a stint in Chennai with a regular outswinger and an extra yard of pace. No matter that Asif represents the arch enemy.
What a heartwarming story of India-Pakistan co-operation for the greater good of the game. Of course, its not clear that Mohammed Asif thinks his stint at the MRF did any good. For as reported in this piece:
He was sent as one of a clutch of Pakistani fast bowlers to the MRF Pace Academy in Chennai last year although he isn't sure how much that has contributed to his improvement. "I was only there for ten days so I am not sure how much of a difference it has really made."
Honestly, the day I see a Pakistani cricketer acknowledge a positive contribution by anything remotely related to India to his cricket will be the day, that I, er, well, er, I'm not sure what.
