Throughout the history of the game, the entertainment industry has found its connections with the cricketing fraternity and the recent episode between renowned singer Ali Zafar and former Pakistan quick Shoaib Akhtar reaffirmed the notion.
In an entertaining cricket tussle that provided a plethora of entertainment to the ever-swelling fan base of both the stars, Shoaib Akhtar challenged Ali Zafar to share a battle against him.
It started with Ali Zafar bowling a bouncer to Shoaib, giving the Rawalpindi born a taste of his own medicine. Jokingly, he said that his pace was slightly over 172mph. However, Shoaib had no plans to come second in this race.
Against the expectations and in response to Ali’s bouncer, the fastest paceman ever to appear on the International arena bamboozled the talismanic singer with a slower ball yorker.
This way, two mega-stars of Pakistan were found sharing great banter and laughter. Not only that, but the veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez also decided to join the race by announcing that he will take on the winner between Ali and Shoaib.
