Fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar said that our cricket is not over, you should be grateful to us that we have decided to visit your country in such difficult times.
Expressing anger, Shoaib Akhtar said that you are talking about Pakistan, you should discriminate and be careful about the future while making such statements.
On the other hand, Shoaib Akhtar, while addressing the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), said that if the national team was sent back home, you should show toughness and end relations with New Zealand.
Shoaib Akhtar also criticized the PCB for sending the national team on a commercial flight to New Zealand and said, “Does the PCB’s brain work?” Couldn’t they arrange a chartered flight for the team?
