Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar will forever be remembered in the cricketing world for his unparalleled flair and feisty nature on the field. Always ready to deliver a barrage of steamy bouncers and searing yorkers during his playing days, the ‘Rawalpindi Express’ now spends his time appearing as a cricket pundit on television.
Akhtar also maintains an active presence on social media and is never too shy of sharing his blunt views on public platforms. Recently, the ex-cricketer congratulated British professional boxer Qais Ashfaq for winning the WBA Continental super-bantamweight title fight with Joe Ham.
Qais, who is of Pakistani origin, received compliments from Akhtar as the 44-year-old claimed he was happy to see him succeed on the international stage. Akhtar hoped to see Qais gain more accolades in the future and make his country proud.
