Shoaib Akhtar has recently showered his love for India on a recent chat show where he added that Indians do not want war with neighbouring nation Pakistan while also adding that Indians are dying t work with the neighbours.
Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar showered his praise on Indian cricketers and the Indian team on his YouTube channel which he put up long after calling it quits from international cricket.
In a recent chat show where he went on to praise the Indian citizens and also revealed how the Indian media is totally different from the actual emotions in the country.
Akhtar added, “India is a great place, the people are amazing. Never did I feel that they want any animosity or any type of war with Pakistan. But, when I went to their TVs etc. it feels as if war will happen tomorrow. I have travelled extensively across India, have seen the country very closely, I can say today, India is dying to work with Pakistan. India’s path of progress goes through Pakistan, I am convinced.”
He also went on to talk about the losses that the BCCI will incur if the IPL 2020 gets cancelled or postponed due to the widespread pandemic of Coronavirus.
“I hope India does not incur this loss and I hope they prosper, but it is all happening which is unfortunate,” he added in a statement.
The 44-year-old former pacer had earlier expressed his anger on the Chinese people for eating bats, dogs and cats and thus spreading such a deadly disease across the world.
“I don’t understand why you have to eat things like bats, drink their blood and urine and spread some virus across the globe… I’m talking about the Chinese people. They have put the world at stake. I really don’t understand how can you eat bats, dogs, and cats. I’m really angry,” he had said.
