Former Pakistani fast bowler by the name of Shoaib Akhtar made the headlines recently after he humiliated Pakistan skipper Babar Azam and his teammates by questioning their oratory or communication skills.
Akhtar’s comments regarding the same have gone viral on the social media portals. Shoaib Akhtar also went on to add saying that Babar Azam is not a global brand in Pakistan because he doesn’t speak English in the first place.
Apart from slamming Babar Azam, Shoaib Akhtar also slammed the Pakistan players for not putting in an effort to learn English and the former pacer’s remarks went viral in no time on social media portals.
The former cricketer, in an interview with Suno News said, “Abhi aap dekh le, koi character nahi team mein. Naa koi baat karne ka tarika. (You can see there’s no character in the team, nor do they know how to talk.)”
He further continued, “Kitna mushkil hai English seekhna aur baat krna? (How difficult is it to learn and speak English?). Cricket is one job, and handling media is another. If you can’t speak, I am sorry, but you won’t be able to express yourself on TV. I want to openly say that Babar Azam should be the biggest brand in Pakistan, but why hasn’t he become the biggest brand in Pakistan? Because he can’t speak.”
