At that time I would have killed Wasim Akram, Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar.


Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has been making headlines for several days with various controversial remarks. This time he made controversial remarks again. On a television show, he said he had confessed to his desire to assassinate former Pakistani star pacer Wasim Akram directly. And after such remarks of Shoaib Akhtar, world cricket has become tumultuous.

Speaking on that television show, Akhtar said that Wasim Akram was bowling brilliantly in several tournaments in 1990. Pakistan was going to win the almost lost match due to the great performance of Wasim Akram. At that time I became his devotee. But then if Akram had told me to fix the match in any way, I would have killed him or else I would have destroyed him forever. But I know Akram never used to say that kind of talk.

“I have played cricket for the Pakistan national team for seven or eight years in a row,” Akhtar said. Wasim Akram was my colleague at that time. As Akram destroyed any top order of the team, it would have been very beneficial for me to take the last wicket.
