Shoaib Akhtar and Ramiz Raja are at odds over the latter’s scathing remarks about Pakistan’s hot batsman and captain Babar Azam. Shoaib Akhtar has been referred to as a “delusional superstar” by a former head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), who also requested him to make observations about how former Indian cricketers conduct themselves in public.
Shoaib Akhtar, renowned as the Rawalpindi Express for his incredible pace bowling, was the target of a vicious attack from Raja who called Him a “delusional superstar.” Raja thinks it is much more crucial for any cricket player to strive to improve as a person first and as a brand second.
Soon after Akhtar made a recent appearance on a talk show, the tense argument between the two former Pakistan cricketers took a terrible turn.About Babar Azam’s communication abilities, a Pakistani television station made contentious comments. The seasoned bowler made fun of Azam’s English language abilities and continued by claiming that the Pakistani captain couldn’t speak English well.
On a live show, Akhtar had also criticised former Pakistani wicket-keeper and batter Kamran Akmal. Despite his fame, Akhtar received harsh criticism from Pakistan’s cricket community.
Ramiz Raja and Shoaib Akhtar.
Raja, who was a member of Pakistan’s World Cup-winning squad in 1992, criticised Akhtar and suggested that he learn a few things from the way that the Indian cricketers conduct themselves in public. Sunil Gavaskar will never criticise Rahul Dravid in front of the public, according to Raja.Former international athletes shouldn’t violate etiquette, according to Raja.
While speaking on the Pakistani local television programme BOL Network, Raja made these comments.
Raja described Shoaib Akhtar as a “delusional superstar” without mincing words. He just had a conflict with Kamran Akmal as well. He wants everyone to become a brand, but first becoming a human is more crucial. Become a human first, then a brand, then.
