Bold Comment of Shoaib Akhtar on AB de Villiers: He Says that ABD Started Crying While Facing Mohammed Asif
Pakistani cricketers are always in the news for making controversial claims and statements. He claimed that veteran cricketers like VVS Laxman and ABD were quite ‘scared’ of facing Mohammed Asif who according to Shoaib Akhtar was the “smartest ever pacer.” Bold Comment of Shoaib Akhtar on AB de Villiers started to cry when he was about to face Asif in the Asian Test Championship.
Let’s not forget that Akhtar is talking about the same Mohammed Asif who was banned by the ICC (International Cricket Council) for indulging is spot-fixing in England. He claims that Asif was far better than ‘legend’ Wasim Akram.
He also claims that he had seen batsmen cry while they were about to face Asif. As per him, veteran Indian cricketer VVS Laxman once said that, “How will I be facing this particular guy as a bowler?”.
Although he did say a lot of things on this issue, his one comment was quite correct in nature. He said that that Jasprit Bumrah is the smartest bowler right now in international cricket.
Akhtar’s rant about Asif can be attributed to the fact that the Pakistan cricket team is performing quite poorly in its ongoing tour of New Zealand. Meanwhile recently Asif had also made a bold claim that Pakistan cricket board is engaged in ‘age-fraud’.
We should never ever forget that Asif is nothing but a spot fixer. Who was caught bowling no bowls with fellow cricketer Mohammed Amir. They were imprisoned for some time in England for their shameful conduct.
Pakistan cricket has been riddled with fixing since many years. Dozens of cricketers have been involved with spot and match fixing. There are many Pakistani cricketers who have done this. Some are Mohammed Irfan, Danish Kaneria, Salman Butt, Saleem Malik, and Umar Akmal. And there are more players on the list.
