An incident of the game is discussed briefly as Kaif tried to walk down the track to Akhtar in pursuit to open the run-rate. Akhtar, jokingly told Kaif that do not walk at him like that. “Mohammad Kaif was walking towards me again. I just feel like punching him.

Akhtar was back into the cricket field after he lost his mother three weeks back. He insisted that coming back into a place which gave him everything does put a smile on his face.

“It was fun. I lost my mother three weeks ago, but today I had a smile on my face, for the first time since the demise of my mother. But this gives me great satisfaction – bowling, running in and bowling fast,” Akhtar said.
