Shoaib Akhtar who is known as Rawalpindi express in cricketing circles for the extreme pace that he possessed. He has the fastest recorded delivery in the history of the game and that’s no mean feat. However, Shoaib Akhtar is someone who’s not just quick when it comes to bowling, as can be seen by the exponential and express growth of his YouTube channel.
The fast bowler was the fastest to 1 million Youtube subscribers in Pakistan and it’s his ability to colloquially frame everything that helps him create a special bond with the viewer. He is also a motormouth who on occasions has been known to exaggerate things, but like all publicity loving personalities, he knows how to brand himself.
Coming back to cricket, he recently revealed why Ganguly was the best Indian captain he played against and even heaped praises about the Bengali’s batting. “If I talk about India, then it will be Sourav Ganguly. India haven’t produced a better captain than him. Dhoni is very good, he’s a superb captain but when you talk about team building then Ganguly did a great job,” said Akhtar during an interaction on Helo app. “People used to say that he was scared to face fast bowling, he was afraid to face me. I think all of that was rubbish. Sourav Ganguly was the bravest batsman, the only opener who could face me with the new ball,” said Akhtar.
