Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar one of the fastest bowlers to have ever played the game got trolled after he referred to himself as ‘don’ of cricket. Akhtar took to Twitter and his post read, “Don of cricket as they called me but never enjoyed hurting people but I must say when I was out there I just ran in for the love of my country & for the people around the world.” Also Read - India vs Australia: PM Narendra Modi, Sachin Tendulkar Congratulate Team India After Historic Win; Fans on Twitter Go Berserk
Apparently, this did not go down well with fans who took to Twitter and reminded him of Sachin Tendulkar’s six in the 2003 World Cup and also reminded him of what Sehwag had once told him about Sachin when he was digging in bouncers at Sehwag.
Here are the trolls.
The right-arm pacer played a total of 46 Tests, 163 ODIs and 15 T20Is in total. He scalped 178 wickets in Tests whereas he bagged 247 scalps in ODIs. His last international contest came during World Cup 2011 against New Zealand in Pallekele. Akhtar now is a commentator and is also often seen on TV debates. He is pretty active on Twitter as well.
