God Bless, Shoaib Akhtar: Harbhajan Singh

However, both have become good friends after Pakistan’s excellent bowler bid adieu to the game. The classy fast bowler has now become a regular contact of many Indian players and even attended Indian shows as well.

Digging into Harbhajan’s tweet, it read ”Happy birthday Shoaib. God bless.” He furtherly added a picture of both which surfaced in an entertainment show.

Shoaib Akhtar is currently out of the cricketing action but always engages himself in representing Pakistan in interviews and provides his valuable insights owing to the game of cricket.

He always urged Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for searching a raw talent in the local regions and was successful in bringing the board do the required stuff in search for quality pacers.

An astonishing record of Shoaib Akhtar:

The legendary fast bowler from Pakistan still holds the record of registering fastest-ever delivery in International cricket. He clicked at a top speed of 161.3 kph which is still the highest in cricket history.

On a concluding note, Akhtar’s career has always been endured with controversies, injuries and the strong performances. Though his controversies pushed him out of the team, his performances kept the selectors on a quiet note.

He is also one of the few Pakistani players to feature in Indian Premier League (IPL).

Concluding, birthday wishes pour in from the cricketing world for such a stalwart of the game.
