Shoaib Akhtar Opens Up For Quitting A TV Show Midway After Pakistan Beats New Zealand In 2021 T20I WC Clash

Shoaib Akhtar, the former Pakistan speedster, quit live on air after facing “rude and obnoxious” behaviour during a show. In a post-match show, after Pakistan’s win over New Zealand, Shoaib Akhtar and the show’s host, Dr. Nauman Niaz, were involved in a verbal spat while discussing the impact of Lahore Qalandars’ Player Development Program (PDP) on pacers Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf’s performance.

Shoaib Akhtar said he had been treated badly and insulted on air by the host in the post-match show following Pakistan’s five-wicket win over New Zealand in the ongoing T20I World Cup 2021. The Rawalpindi Express was on the show discussing the Babar Azam-led team’s performance in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup along with cricketing greats such as West Indies’ Vivian Richards and England’s David Gower.

Shoaib Akhtar Interrupted And Offered To Leave Show Midway For Being Rude

While the panel was discussing the performance of pace bowlers Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf, Shoaib Akhtar was interrupted by Nauman Niaz. A visibly upset former Pakistan pacer expressed his displeasure, and the host offered him to leave the show midway if he wanted to.

“You’re being a little rude and I don’t want to say this: but if you’re being over smart, you can go. I am saying this on air,” Niaz told Akhtar and immediately switched to a commercial break.

A sensational bowling performance by Haris Rauf (4/22) helped Pakistan restrict New Zealand to 134/8 a few days after teammate Shaheen Shah Afridi dismissed Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul off his first seven deliveries and finished with 3-31 after dismissing India’s top scorer, skipper Virat Kohli for 57 in a total of 151-7 in 20 overs.

Pakistan’s Haris Rauf, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Mohammad Rizwan have improved their T20I rankings after remarkable performances in World Cup matches against India and New Zealand.

Shoaib Akhtar Left The Show Midway As He Resigned From PTV

Shoaib Akhtar and Nauman Niaz remained on air after the break, but the former eventually decided to leave the show after apologizing to the other guests, which included cricket greats like Sir Viv Richards and David Gower.

“A lot of apologies guys, a lot of apologies. I am resigning from PTV. The way I have been treated on national TV, I don’t think I should be sitting here right now. So, I am resigning. Thank you very much,” said Akhtar before leaving the set.

The problem began apparently when Shoaib Akhtar ignored the line of questioning by the host and decided to talk about pacer Haris Rauf and chose to lavish praise on the Pakistan Super League franchise Lahore Qalandars and its coach, Aaqib Javed, for discovering Haris Rauf and supporting him properly.

Later, Shoaib Akhtar explained the incident on his official Twitter account through a brief video and a couple of tweets. Later, giving his side of the story, Shoaib Akhtar tweeted and posted a video, saying that Nauman Niaz had been “obnoxious” and that he was quitting the show.

Misbah-ul-Haq Hopes Pakistan Doesn’t Go Overboard With Celebrations After Breaking World Cup Jinx Against India

Misbah-ul-Haq, former Pakistan captain and coach, and current Pakistan skipper Babar Azam were among the ones who cautioned the Pakistan players of not going “overboard” with their celebrations following the historic win over India as it was only the first match of the team’s T20 World Cup campaign.

Misbah-ul-Haq, who was forced to resign as head coach of the national team one month before the 2021 World T20 Cup, said the Pakistan players must remain focused on winning the mega-event after beating India for the first time in a World Cup. Misbah-ul-Haq played 75 tests, 162 ODIs, and 39 T20 internationals in his international career.

Misbah-ul-Haq Hopes Pakistan Doesn’t Go Overboard With Celebrations After Breaking Jinx Of Losing In World Cups

In Match 1 of Group 1 of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Pakistan brought to an end India’s near-three-decade domination of them in the world stage in the most convincing fashion, embarrassing their arch-rivals by 10 wickets at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The law of averages had to catch up with India sooner or later after having won seven ODI and five T20 World Cup games since they first met at Sydney in 1992.

Speaking on the a sports Channel with Waqar Younis who also resigned as bowling coach before the tournament, Misbah-ul-Haq said: “I just hope we don’t go overboard with the celebrations and forget we have more matches to play and win in the World Cup.”

Misbah-ul-Haq said that the team had displayed perfect discipline and executed its plans to perfection to beat India by 10 wickets.

“Now the task is to ensure we continue to play with the same discipline with every player fulfilling his role as he did against India if we are to win the tournament, “Misbah-ul-Haq added.

Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis resigned soon after the team returned from the West Indies. A few days after, former captain and commentator Ramiz Raja took charge as Pakistan Cricket Board chairman on September 13. Waqar Younis also noted that it was a tendency in Pakistan cricket that celebrations tended to go overboard. Waqar Younis and Misbah-ul-Haq both had a year still left in their tenures, having taken charge in September 2019.

“This is only the first match and we are still to play against other tough opposition. If we beat India today it does not mean we should take it for granted we can also beat New Zealand, Afghanistan for that we will have to continue the hard work.”

Babar Azam made the same impassioned plea to his players in a video released by the PCB soon after winning the match against India.

“Let’s celebrate, let us go back to the hotel and enjoy this moment with our families but don’t forget this match is now over and we must get back on track to prepare for the other matches of the tournament,” Babar said to his players.

Babar Azam said that after beating India, there would be more expectations from the team now, and to live up to them, the players will have to work harder.

“I want every player to celebrate this moment tonight but then go back to realizing what his role is in the team and what is expected of him in the remaining matches. We have not just come here to win against India, we have come here to win the World Cup, always remember that, ” Babar said.

Pakistan team’s interim head coach, Saqlain Mushtaq, also reminded the players that now teams will come stronger at Pakistan after the win over India.

“We must all do soul searching and think about what we did right today to win the match in such a fashion and to also think and keep working on the weak areas where we still need to continue to do work to remove them. It is about honest self-assessment,” he said.

Saqlain Mushtaq also said that the players must not get carried away with the celebrations after the win over India as cricket was a cruel sport, and every match was a new one. Former Pakistan opener, Mohsin Khan said that winning the toss had been vital for Pakistan and Babar Azam took the right decision to chase down a total as dew would remain a big factor for teams in the tournament.

Aaqib Javed And Rashid Latif Impressed With Pakistan’s Win

Former Test pacer Aaqib Javed said that Shaheen Shah Afridi’s burst of two wickets with the new ball and Hasan Ali’s one wicket put India on the back foot, and they never recovered after that.

“I liked the way the bowlers displayed so much discipline and game awareness today. Haris Rauf used the slower balls to great advantage, ” he said.

Aaqib Javed, a 1992 World Cup-winning squad member, said that it was good to see the Pakistan players showing so much self-belief and confidence.

“India is a top side and to beat them by 10-wickets is amazing. Don’t rule out a rematch with them perhaps in the final, ” he said.

Pakistan’s former wicketkeeper-batsman and captain Rashid Latif lauded the thorough professional attitude and performance of the players.

“Everything went according to plan today starting with the toss. I don’t think any other team which loses its head coach and bowling coach just before a World Cup can perform like this. This can only be done by Pakistan which produces remarkable cricket when least expected,” Latif said.

Pakistan’s former Test pacer Umar Gul said he did not doubt that India would make a strong comeback in their remaining matches.

“They are a very strong side and they will be smarting after this defeat. Expect them to come back strongly.”

Pakistan embarrassed their arch-rivals by 10 wickets in the Super 12 match. Babar Azam stroked his way to 68 while his opening partner, Mohammad Rizwan, smashed 79 as the Indian bowlers struggled to contain the two batters.

Earlier, Virat Kohli’s half-century helped India recover from a disastrous start and post 151/7 against Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup match on Sunday.

Besides Virat Kohli’s 49-ball 57, Rishabh Pant slammed 39 in 30 deliveries. Shaheen Shah Afridi dismissed Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul to put India on the back foot early. India will next play New Zealand on October 31 while Pakistan will take on New Zealand on October 26.

Brief scores: India: 151/7 in 20 overs (Virat Kohli 57, Rishabh Pant 39; Shaheen Shah Afridi 3/31) lost to Pakistan: 152 for no loss in 17.5 overs (Babar Azam 68 not out, Mohammad Rizwan 79 not out) by 10 wickets.

Younis Khan May Take Up A Position In PCB After Ramiz Raja-Aaqib Javed Meeting

A couple of days ago, an important meeting was held between former fast bowler Aaqib Javed and PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja. The former told the PCB chief to concentrate on the grass-root level to improve Pakistani cricket.

Aaqib Javed reportedly advised him to focus on cricket academies, adding that they were particularly important in strengthening cricket in the country. However, sources said that Aaqib Javed is hesitant to join the PCB and feels he is better off with the Lahore Qalandars.

As former Test cricketer, Aaqib Javed is reluctant to join Pakistan cricket, former captain Younis Khan is preparing for another entry in the PCB. The leading runs getter for Pakistan in Test cricket Younis Khan parted way with the Pakistan team as the batting coach earlier this year.

The former batsman resigned from the top job on June 22 even though he was roped in by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for a two-year contract, which would’ve come to a conclusion after the 2022 T20 World Cup. Younis Khan is the only Pakistan player to score 10,000+ Test runs and  Pakistan’s highest run-scorer in Test cricket with the most centuries. He is also the only player to score Test hundreds in all 11 countries. He announced his ODI retirement in November 2015 after having announced his T20I retirement in 2009.

Saqlain Mushtaq Likely As Pakistan’s Head Coach

Former Pakistan bowler Saqlain Mushtaq will most likely be appointed head coach for the national team for the upcoming Men’s T20 World Cup. The 44-year-old is currently serving as the head of the International Player Development at the National High-Performance Centre in Lahore.

Danish Kaneria Believes Wasim Khan’s Resignation As PCB CEO A ‘Blessing In Disguise’

Danish Kaneria, former Pakistan leg spinner slammed outgoing CEO Wasim Khan and believes his departure is a blessing for Pakistan cricket. Wasim Khan stepped down as the CEO of the PCB on Wednesday and his resignation was accepted.

Wasim Khan, who took charge as the PCB CEO in 2019, vacated the position four months before the end of his contract. He revealed that it has been an honor to serve Pakistan cricket but felt the time was to move on and spend more time with his family.

Danish Kaneria Questions Wasim Khan’s Role In Pakistan’s Improvement As The Leg Spinner Blames Him For Failure To Convince England To Tour Pakistan

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Danish Kaneria felt Wasim Khan hardly did anything good for Pakistan cricket. The 40-year-old accused the former CEO of being power-hungry and wealth-oriented. Danish Kaneria also blamed Wasim Khan for failing to convince England to tour Pakistan.

Pakistan’s cricket board said its chief executive had resigned, two weeks after New Zealand and England abandoned tours in the country over security concerns. New Zealand Cricket called off their first tour of Pakistan in 18 years just as the first ODI was due to start in Rawalpindi earlier this month.

Their decision was swiftly followed by England’s cancellation of a planned short tour too next month. PCB gave no reason for Wasim Khan’s resignation, but said it would meet later to “consider the matter”.

“What has Wasim Khan done for Pakistan cricket? He has only ruined Pakistan cricket by running behind money. When Ramiz bhai requested him to work for 30% less money, he declined as the powers were snatched away from him. Khan’s misuse of power damaged and harmed Pakistan cricket. If he had such contacts with England, why couldn’t he convince them to tour Pakistan?”

Pakistan’s much-anticipated home season this year was in a hapless situation as both New Zealand and England withdrew from their scheduled tours of the nation. The decision by both cricketing boards faced severe backlash from the PCB, who had to cope with massive financial losses.

Danish Kaneria Backs Aaqib Javed To Become Director Of Pakistan Cricket

Danish Kaneria said he expects the PCB chairman Ramiz Raja to create a director’s position and dissolve the CEO’s spot. He tipped former paceman, Aaqib Javed, to fit well in the new position, stating he has great credibility and will work well with Ramiz Raja.

“I predict Ramiz bhai to do away with the CEO position and expect Aaqib Javed to occupy the director’s position. He has done wonders as he has worked with Lahore Qalanders. I have also worked with Javed in the National Cricket Academy and he is a zero-tolerance type of personality. There is also a great understanding between Javed and Ramiz bhai.”

Wasim Khan is the latest to depart from the Pakistan cricket circle, following former coaches Misbah-Ul-Haq and Waqar Younis’s resignation. The Men in Green find themselves slightly unsettled by multiple off-field issues ahead of the T20 World Cup, where the team’s selections were also questioned.

Wasim Khan, who is British with Pakistani heritage, had made huge efforts to revive international cricket after a 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lankan team sent Pakistan into isolation for years. Hired on a three-year contract in 2019, he had organized Pakistan’s tours of England and New Zealand amid severe Covid-19 restrictions last year.

Pakistan has only hosted South Africa, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Zimbabwe since the 2009 attacks.

India Should’ve Played A Seam Bowling All-Rounder Instead Of Ravindra Jadeja, Says Aaqib Javed

Aaqib Javed, a former Pakistan pacer while speaking to Salman Butt on his YouTube channel, remarked that Virat Kohli-led India would have been better off had they played a seam-bowling all-rounder instead of Ravindra Jadeja.

Kane Williamson-led New Zealand defeated Virat Kohli’s India by eight wickets in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship (WTC) final in Southampton. Even before India suffered a loss, a former international cricketer Aqib Javed remarked that India failed to select their best XI and the rest is history, as his observations turned out to be quite accurate.

Aaqib Javed: India Should Have Named A Seam Bowling All Rounder Instead Of Selecting Both Spinners

When Salman Butt, a former Pakistan captain, asked whether the management was right in picking two spinners in the playing XI, Aaqib Javed said India missed a trick. Shardul Thakur was the lone fast-bowling all-rounder in India’s squad but he failed to make it to the final 15, let alone the XI.

“India would have had an extra advantage if they named a seam-bowling all-rounder in the playing XI instead of Ravindra Jadeja. But India and Pakistan have always had the ideology that foreign batsmen do not play so well against the spinners. India could have picked Ashwin and a seam-bowling all-rounder instead of selecting both spinners,” said Aaqib Javed.

The two-Test old Shardul Thakur was mighty impressive in the only longest format game he played in the away series against Australia this year, picking up seven wickets and a half-century to boot in Brisbane.

Ravindra Jadeja Scores 15 And 16 And Picks Only 1 Scalp

India, after cruising at 146-3 at one point in their first innings, were bundled out for just 217. Ravindra Jadeja scored 15 off 53 balls before dismissed by Trent Boult. When it came to bowling, the all-rounder returned figures of 1/20 in 7.2 overs as India, courtesy of Mohammed Shami’s four-wicket haul, dismissed the Kiwis for 249.

Trailing by 32, the Indian side could only manage to post 170 in their second innings, thereby setting the Kiwis a target of 139. Tim Southee was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets, while swashbuckling wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was India’s highest scorer with 41 runs off 88 balls.

Ravindra Jadeja, in the second innings, could only score 16 off 49 deliveries and only bowled eight of the 45 overs in the second innings, going wicketless and conceding 25 runs. Indians fielded two spinners — Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja– and the pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah in the WTC final.


Virat Kohli Can Improve His Technique By Looking At Babar Azam, Says Aaqib Javed

Aaqib Javed, Pakistan’s former pacer who is currently the head coach of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) side Lahore Qalandars, believes that India’s skipper and star batsman Virat Kohli can take a leaf out of Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s book in order to improve his technique.

Aaqib Javed also urged Babar Azam to follow Virat Kohli’s fitness routine while talking to Cricket Pakistan in an exclusive interview.

Aaqib Javed: Virat Kohli Has A Better Range Of Shots Compared To Babar Azam But Has To Improve Technique

Virat Kohli and Babar Azam’s comparison is a never-ending story. Both have been compared because currently, they are the best batsmen in their respective nations. Also, they belong to the two rival countries so the fans keep debating about the best player between the two.

“Virat Kohli has a better range [of shots] as compared to Babar Azam but he also has one area of weakness. If the ball swings, he tends to get trapped around the off-stump such as against [James] Anderson in England,” said Javed.

“When you look at Babar, you don’t see any weak areas. Just like, [Sachin] Tendulkar who also didn’t have any weak areas. Babar is technically more safe and sound but if he follows Kohli’s fitness routine he will become an even better player. Meanwhile, Kohli can improve his technique by looking at Babar so that he doesn’t get trapped,” he added. 

Babar Azam, the 25-year-old Pakistan ODI, and T20I captain had gained fame with his batting in a short period of his international career. Many experts say that he has a reflection of India’s captain Virat Kohli’s batting.

Aaqib Javed Praised Babar Azam For His Consistency And The Fact That Captaincy Hasn’t Affected His Form

Aaqib Javed also praised Babar Azam for being the backbone of the Pakistan team over the past couple of years. Babar Azam has captained Pakistan in 6 ODIs, 15 T20Is, and 2 Tests.

“During the past two or three years, Babar Azam is 50 percent of Pakistan’s batting. I never thought that he would be this consistent and even go past Virat Kohli [in ODI rankings]. Pakistan is very lucky, he came when the team was struggling and has single-handedly put the team on the right track. Even, captaincy hasn’t affected his form,” he concluded.

While the 32-year-old Virat Kohli has set a great example of consistency in batting and fitness which he has maintained for a long time, the 26-year-old Babar Azam has also impressed in a similar way.

The No. 1 ranked ODI batsman, No. 5 ranked Test batsman, and No. 5 ranked T20I batsman Virat Kohli has maintained the 50 plus batting average in every international format.  The No.2 ranked ODI batsman, No.6 ranked Test batsman, and No.3 ranked T20I batsman Babar Azam averages around 56 in ODIs and around 44 in Tests, and around 47 in T20Is.

While Babar Azam has around 10,000 runs in all 3 formats combined, Virat Kohli is more experienced having amassed almost 20,000 runs in ODIs and Tests combined. He is the only batsman to score more than 3000 runs in T20Is ahead of Martin Guptill, Rohit Sharma, Aaron Finch, and Mohammed Hafeez to name a few.

Sachin Tendulkar Created A 100 Per Cent Impact On The Game With His Quality And Talent: Aaqib Javed

As Sachin Tendulkar completed seven years of his retirement on last Monday, Aaqib Javed called the Master Blaster the most impactful cricketer of his era and said he deserved to rule world cricket with the talent and quality he possessed.

Sachin Tendulkar retired after playing the 200th Test match that ended on November 16, 2013. His farewell match was an emotional affair not only for the batting maestro but also for the fans because it was the last time everyone saw him in the field in the Indian jersey. He was a massive contributor for Team India across all the formats with his willow.

Aaqib Javed has also heaped praise on Sachin Tendulkar, stating that he was a seasoned cricketer. Notably, the duo came up against each other on quite a few occasions in their respective international careers.

“Sachin created a 100 percent impact on the game with the quality of talent he had. He held the numero uno spot in the game for several years as he was a seasoned cricketer,” Javed said in a chat with GloFans Q20 fan series.

Sachin Tendulkar ruled cricket world for years:

In his 20 years long international cricket career, Sachin Tendulkar went on to play a staggering 200 Tests and 463 ODIs. He made the debut at the age of 16 and became the youngest cricketer to represent India. He churned out runs on every occasion for the team and became the first cricketer to score 15,000 above runs in both Test and ODIs.

Moreover, so far, he is the only cricketer to have 100 international centuries in his name. Current Indian skipper Virat Kohli is the only active batsman close to the Master Blaster’s 100-century record. Kohli has so far notched up 70 international centuries and is closing in on Tendulkar’s record of most ODI hundreds (49) with 43 tons under his belt in the fifty-over format.
