Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar expressed his disappointment on not finding his name in the Hindi commentator’s list for the 12th edition of the Vivo IPL. Akhtar was an integral part of this team and had developed a fan base of his own with his unique style.
Akhtar vented his disappointment when Hindi commentator, Aakash Chopra shared the list of the Star Sports Hindi commentators’ panel. Shoaib instantly reacted and re-tweeted after seeing this by saying, “My name is missing in that roster!” The legendary bowler also added the pensive face emoji at the end of his tweet.
The lovely Twitter conversation between them despite their countries being at risk of war was largely liked and appreciated by their fans. Aakash Chopra and Shoaib Akhtar were part of the historic India-Pakistan Test series in 2004 when India won a Test series in Pakistan for the first and the only time in their cricketing history.
