The former fast bowler from Pakistan also known as the ‘Rawalpindi Express’ by his fans recently took a dig at the Pakistan Cricket Board for not treating their former legends of the team with the kind of respect they deserve.
Akhtar, the fastest bowler in the world, in a recent TV show compared how former cricketers were treated in other countries and while he felt quite gutted, he also insisted that it’s high time for the PCB to take the right steps to save cricket in Pakistan. He also pointed fingers at those in the position of power and stated that their thought process was quite selfish as they always preferred puppets around them.
One of the fastest you-tubers to 1 million subscribers, Akhtar, further added that while cricketing boards across the world are hiring former cricketers like Rahul Dravid, Graeme Smith & many more at top positions, the PCB should take a leaf out their book. The 6 feet tall former right-arm fast bowler further stressed on the example of how the Indian management is handling their personnel with Sourav Ganguly as the BCCI President & Rahul Dravid as the head of the National Cricket Academy.
While this might be to cover up for the statement he made yesterday, ” India is dying to work with Pakistan’, this time he indeed did make sense while he thinks it’s Pakistan who indeed needs to learn from the BCCI looking at the difference in the current state and quality of cricket in India and Pakistan. India seems miles ahead at the moment and I will leave it to that.
