Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has listed out four problems which he has with his former teammate Shahid Afridi. Two of the biggest personalities in Pakistan cricket, Akhtar and Afridi have played a lot of cricket together and are also known to share a great bond. While the duo has pulled each others’ legs in several interviews, they have also not hesitated in showering praises.
In fact, Akhtar, a couple of years ago, revealed that Afridi was treated harshly by seniors during his early days in the international arena. However, the Rawalpindi Express, on Tuesday (November 16), revealed he also has some ‘problems’ with the former Pakistan captain. Akhtar took to Twitter and shared a video that also features the veteran all-rounder.
Shahid Afridi hits the ball further than I do: Shoaib Akhtar
From Afridi’s big-hitting skills to his hair, Akhtar jokingly listed down four issues in the hilarious video, which features both the ex-cricketers. “Do you agree with what I am saying about Boom Boom @SAfridiOfficial ?” read the caption.
“The only problem I have with Shahid is that he is better looking than. And then, another problem that I have is that he hits the ball further than I do. Basically, the problem is that he is more famous than I am,” said Akhtar as the person shooting the video was left in splits.
“Another problem, the biggest, I have with him is that he has more hair than I do. That’s what I told his brother in the flight the other day that he has more hair than me and he is far better-looking than I am,” says Akhtar while him and Afridi break into laughter. The video ends with Afridi pointing to a certain corner of the room, telling Akhtar: “people are waiting for you.”
