I watch Shoaib Akhtar videos just to hear him say stuff like baal katwa liye, pace zyaada ho gayi bande ki. Which is not to say he never has a useful input to give. He is Shoaib Akhtar, after all, the super-fast pacer from yesteryears (something he will remind you of a thousand times).
Anyway, his bowling skills can’t be questioned – it seems like he was born with them. Unlike his social media proficiencies. We dug up his posts from 8 years ago and they are gold! You can check them out here.
