In his recent session he had requested the Indian government to provide Pakistan with 10,000 ventilators helping them in their fight against the novel pandemic.

Coronavirus outbreak has raised several questions on the sustainability of human life. The death toll has crossed 88,000-mark until now. Moreover, it is spreading at a very high rate with each day passing. Every business, sporting activities etc have come down to a tragic halt. Meanwhile, the cricketing fraternity from across the globe has come forward and donated hefty amounts in the fight against the novel virus.

Netizens troll Shoaib Akhtar for his 10,000 ventilators request

So far there have been 4,414 cases of Coronavirus recorded in Pakistan. And, 63 citizens have lost their lives due to the novel virus. Shoaib Akhtar, in his recent video on his YouTube channel, said that if India can provide 10,000 ventilators to Pakistan then they will always remember this heartwarming gesture.

“If India can make 10,000 ventilators for us, Pakistan will remember this gesture forever. But we can only propose the matches. The rest is up to the authorities (to decide),” the former Pakistan pacer had said on his YouTube channel. This request from retired Pakistani pacer spread like a wildfire on social media. And, netizens began questioning Shoaib Akhtar if he doesn’t trust his government anymore.

Recently, the 44-year-old had also proposed the idea for organizing a three-match ODI series between India and Pakistan. As per him, it will be a fund-raising series and the funds will be used in the battle against Coronavirus. However, the former cricketers like Kapil Dev and Zaheer Abbas denied any possibility of such event getting organized in the near future.

“You are bound to get massive viewership for the games. For the first time, both countries will play for each other. And whatever funds are generated through this can be donated equally to the government of India and Pakistan to fight this pandemic,” the ex-Pakistani cricketer had suggested.
