It is reported in the media that Shoaib Akhtar the controversial and spotted pacer of Pakistan cricket team has once again knocked on the door of chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board Dr. Nasim Ashraf and has asked for mercy. He was accompanied by the chief operating officer of PCB, Shafqat Naghmi, who also requested to the chairman PCB to review the pacer’s request.
Shoaib Akhtar who is facing now a career-destroying ban of eighteen long months due to his ill behaviour and his rogue attitude just now wants a last chance to prove his mettle. He is also asking PCB chairman to withdraw the 7 million fine, as he is unable to pay that due to his virtually non-existent cricket over the few years, and he hasn’t earned much from the Indian Premier League, and its already spent on the courts and the lawyers.
Before going to the chairman PCB, Shoaib was reported to be weeping in front of interior advisor to PM Rehman Malik, who previously got Shoaib some relief, but Rehman Malik was way too busy in tackling the long march of the lawyers, so he gave Shoaib a pat and assurance to be relaxed as there was some relief just round the corner.
It is expected that after all some more pleading and weeping and whining Shoaib would get some relief.More on:Aftab Farrukh, IPL, Nasim Ashraf, PCB, Rehman Malik, Shafqat Naghmi, Shoaib Akhtar
