Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar is rarely out of the limelight since his brusque manner of speaking and straightforward opinions catch the attention of media outlets. Once again in the thick of things, Akhtar has now taken a jibe at Indian great Virender Sehwag in response to remarks the latter made in 2016.
Sehwag had said that Akhtar sings praises of the Indian team because he makes most of his earnings in the country. Akhtar brutally responded by making fun of Sehwag’s bald appearance saying he makes more money than the amount of hair the former opener has on his head.
"I have more maal (money) than you have baal (hair) on your head. If you are not able to fathom that I have such high followers, then understand it. It has taken me 15 years to become Shoaib Akhtar. Yes, I have a huge fan following in India, but I criticized them when they did not play well in the first ODI against Australia"- he was quoted as saying in a video posted on his YouTube channel.
