Former Pakistan cricketers Mohammad Hafeez, Wasim Akram, Misbah-ul-Haq, and Azhar Ali couldn’t control their laughter as they discussed Iftikhar’s Ahmed. The panelists of the A sports were discussing the role the right-hander can play for the team.

Mohammad Hafeez, who was recently removed as the director of the Pakistan Cricket Team, was highlighting how crucial role Iftikhar Ahmed can play for the Pakistan team in the next 5-7 years. The former skipper of the team pointed out that the all-rounder is 33 years old now and could be vital.

Mohammad Hafeez said “Iftikhar Ahmed is just 33 years old, he can still play an important role for Pakistan for another 6-7 years”

However, as he was talked about the role of Iftikhar Ahmed, he couldn’t continue his talk as he broke into laughter. The entire panel of the former Pakistan cricketers couldn’t hold their laugh. The video of the incident went viral on the internet in no time and made many speculate about the age of the all-rounder.

Here’s the video:

Ever since Iftikhar Ahmed joined the Pakistan team, the all-rounder has often been trolled for his age. Many fans and experts have hilariously stated that his age is more than 40 and he hasn’t told about his real age to anyone, leaving many in splits.

Even his Pakistan teammates in Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, and others tease him for his age. Whenever Iftikhar Ahmed calls any of his teammates his brother, they react hilariously to it, saying that they aren’t his brothers as the all-rounder is much older than them and he shouldn’t make such comments.

On the cricket front, irrespective of his age, Iftikhar Ahmed has been sensational with bat and ball for his team. Batting down the order, the all-rounder has played some brutal knocks for his team. Apart from this, he has been handy with the ball as well and has chipped in at crucial junctures for his team.

Iftikhar Ahmed has played 28 ODIs for Pakistan and has slammed 614 runs at a strike rate of over 106. He also has hit one half-century and one century. With the ball, he has picked 16 wickets with the best of 5/40. In 54 T20Is, he has scored 858 runs at a strike rate of around 130. With the ball, he has also picked up 7 wickets.

Iftikhar Ahmed does carnage with the bat in the game against Peshawar Zalmi

Iftikhar Ahmed, who is playing for Multan Sultans in the ongoing PSL 2024, brought out his best with the bat in the game against Peshawar Zalmi on Tuesday (5th March). He single-handedly kept his team in the hunt and gave the opposition team a real scare with the bat.

In the chase of 205, Multan was struggling at 91/4 and it was also certain that they would lose the game by a big margin. But Iftikhar Ahmed did the carnage with the bat and made sure that he took the game as deep as possible, giving his team every chance to win the game.

Iftikhar Ahmed smashed Peshawar Zalmi bowlers all over the park. He scored an unbeaten 60 runs off just 27 balls and brought his team close to the target. He had a strike rate of over 222 and hit 4 fours and 5 sixes in his innings. His valiant innings went in vain as Multan lost the game by 4 runs.
