Counter Tips

Try to carry a pink ward against her so that she can't use her shroud defensively.
Picking a stealth reveal champion such as Lee Sin, will make things much harder for Akali as she will not be able to her shroud as freely.
Akali will still be hit by AOE abilities while inside her shroud.
After level 6, try to prevent her use of Mark of the Assassin, as she can proc it twice using her dashes.
