It seems that Shoaib Akhtar is more interested in making us laugh nowadays than hurling cricket balls at 100 miles per hour.
First there was the revelation from the PCB that Shoaib would miss the World T20 in England last year due to genital warts.
Then came the story that he had undergone a liposuction operation and would miss cricket for three months; ruling him out of the tours to New Zealand and Australia.
Now he has been quoted as saying that he wants to be the Pakistan captain, which is as preposterous as it is hilarious.
Pakistan may be desperate with the cricket ball eating Afridi, the ‘I need a break’ Younis and the squabbling toddlers Yousuf and Malik to choose from. But surely they are not THAT desperate?
Just keep the laughs coming Shoaib.
