The derailed Rawalpindi Express, the most controversial and psycho fast bowler of Pakistan has once again twisted his story. He approached the PPP cho-chairman Asif Ali Zardari who asked Rehman Malik to have a talk with President Musharraf’s buddy Dr. Nasim Ashraf. The talks proved fruitful.
Now as the Pakistan Cricket Board has given respite to Shoaib Akhtar so he is flying to India to play Indian Premier League (IPL) after an appeals tribunal decided to temporarily suspend his five-year ban. It would be funny if Shoaib Akhtar indulges in yet another broil or controversy or scandal in India during IPL, as anything could be expected of this player and especially when the cheerleaders are so beautiful, inviting and ravishing.
Shoaib Akhtar’s career is full of such infamous incidents, but recently he was in hot waters as first he was banned on April 1 after he was found guilty of violating a players’ code of conduct in spite of being under a two-year probation for earlier breaches of discipline that included hitting fellow pacer Mohammad Asif with a cricket bat just days before the start of last September’s World Twenty20 championship in South Africa. The bowler invited even more trouble by claiming that he was being victimised by the PCB and alleged that Board chairman Nasim Ashraf had asked for a commission from his IPL contract. Ashraf filed a Rs 22 million defamation suit against him which will be heard by a civil court on May 16.
But now as the Rehman Malik has patched up between the two, it seems that bad days for Shoaib are over, and he would be in clear for now for sometime until he commits the next blooper.More on:Asif Ali Zardari, Dr. Nasim Ashraf, Enver Baig, PCB, Rehman Malik, Shoaib Akhtar
