Here’s Why Shoaib Akhtar Is Getting Trolled

Recently, Shoaib Akhtar found himself at the receiving end of trolling after he claimed that he used to pull a truck for 8 km, which helped him to get that extra bit of speed. As per him, the same also helped him bowl the fastest delivery ever in the history of cricket. During the 2003 World Cup match between Pakistan and England, Akhtar had clocked the fastest delivery – 161.3kph.

Speaking to Sportskeeda, Akhtar was once again boasting about his skills and this time he went too far with his claims, which has raised quite a lot of eyebrows. He said:

“During my playing days, a break used to always rejuvenate me. But the team management did not understand me. Even at the first-class level, the story was the same,”

He added: “During the match or at practice, I always used to bowl from my full run-up. I have approximately covered thrice the distance of earth’s circumference only by running. The management should have been more careful and played me in only three of the five ODIs during a series,” 

Shoaib  Akhtar Made A Shocking Revelation

In another statement, Akhtar also stated that he intended to strike and injure batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar in a Test match. Yes, you read that right.

Akhtar revealed that he was dead set on wounding Sachin in a Test match at any cost. Inzamam-ul-Haq insisted on bowling in front of the wickets, but Shoaib Akhtar just wanted to hit Sachin. So, he smacked him on his helmet and declared him finished. However, when he watched the replay, Sachin had managed to save his head somehow.
