Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar said that he is ready to coach fast bowlers from any country. He added that if he accepted the offer from the neighboring country, he would also coach the Indian team.
According to the details, in an interview with a social networking site, he said that he only wants to create fast bowlers who can oppose the batsmen, even if they are from any country.
When the host raised a question about India, the Rawalpindi Express replied, “I will; I will spread the word.”
He further said that he is also ready to coach the bowlers in the full Indian Premier League.
Akhtar played for Shah Rukh Khan’s team, Kolkata Knight Riders, in the opening season of the IPL, but the Indian government banned Pakistani cricketers from the IPL in 2009.
Shoaib Akhtar is going to be the head coach of Lahore Qalandars?
Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) legal adviser Tufazal Rizvi filed a defamation suit against former speedster Shoaib Akhtar.
Filing a Rs 100 million legal notice against Shoaib Akhtar, Rizvi said the former cricketer should apologize for the allegations or face legal action.
The PCB’s legal adviser said he would donate the compensation to the High Court dispensary. Shoaib Akhtar should apologize or prove the allegations.
On the other hand, the Pakistan Bar Council has also reacted strongly to Shoaib Akhtar’s statement.
In a statement, Abid Saqi, vice-chairman of the Pakistan Bar Council, said Tofazal Rizvi, a legal adviser to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), was a member of the bar and Shoaib Akhtar should not have made such a statement about him.
