ICL: Indian Cricket League

Shoaib Akhtar Got the Indian Wind

Written by Commoner on November 15th, 2007   (291 views)

Shoaib Akhtar is playing buddy-buddy with Indians nowadays. This is really a very strange phenomenon with most the Pakistani current and former players, who blast Indians back in home, but when they are on Indian soil, they suddenly start chanting ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘India Pakistan Piyar Tu Hona He Tha’, and ‘India Pakistan friendship’ etc.


He is concentrating more on extra-field activities as usual and less on the bowling. He hasn’t been able to show any extraordinary or even acceptable performance in any of the ODI matches hence being played in this tour of Pakistan to India. He is giving interviews over interviews to Indian media, and speculating about his marriage and the selection of the girl. He really never gets tired of praising himself, and his awful English in a very bad accent really makes one to vomit.


He has been found saying in the Indian media, that India and Pakistan should use cricket as the bridge for friendship. He has said that he has given Indian pacer Sreesanth some very useful tips, which will make him really lethal for Pakistani batsmen. One wishes that he would also act upon those magic tips to render any advantage to his own team. Perhaps Shoaib Akhtar would have told Sreesanth to throw a nasty bounder right on the head of Shahid Afridi, may be, who knows.


He has also revealed to media that he works very hard to keep fit. He does harsh cycling, and he climbs stiff mountains and he runs with weight on his back. He spends almost his whole day in the gym and he is tough like bull. Then one wonders that why this tough-bull pants just after the first over?


I still wistfully pines that he would join Indian Cricket League and screw Kapil Dev & co.
