Akhtar retired from the game after the 2011 World Cup. He will go down in history as one of the fastest bowlers to have graced the game. Akhtar, in fact, still holds the record for bowling the fastest delivery in the game. He played 46 Tests and 163 ODIs for Pakistan, taking 178 and 247 wickets respectively in the two formats.

Coming to his latest tweet, he posted a very adorable tweet and asked his fans and mates to pray for his son. And while everyone did it, Harbhajan Singh hilariously trolled him. The India legend congratulated Akhtar for becoming father as well as blessed the kid before taking a cheeky dig at the Pakistani legend.

Harbhajan Singh hilariously mentioned that Akhtar’s speed has not decrease yet, writing:

“God bless him❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️..congratulations @shoaib100mph speed kam nahi hui brother.. ??

The fans absolutely loved the reply from Harbhajan Singh and were quick to respond to his tweet with their own hilarious comments.

Here are some of the reactions:
