Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar is currently participating in Legends League Cricket. Akhtar is part of the Asia Lions led by former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi. The current season of LLC is being played in Qatar with three teams – Indian Maharajas, Asia Lions and World Giants. In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Akhtar was seen having a healthy banter with former India spinner Harbhajan Singh. In the video, Akhtar shared an incident from the Faisalabad Test during India’s tour of Pakistan in the 2005-06 season.
Akhtar recalled Harbhajan’s reaction after hitting two big sixes during the first innings.
“Shall I tell you what happened in Faisalabad?” Akhtar said in a video uploaded on his YouTube channel.
Harbhajan Singh, who hit Akhtar for a six during the same match, replied: “No, I didn’t misbehave. I hit you for a six and you got angry ‘How can he hit me like that?’
However, Akhtar responded by saying: “No. You misbehaved when I hit two sixes off your bowling.”
Harbhajan replied, “When he is losing the war of words, he starts using force.”
Asia Lions will face India Maharajas on Saturday. Both teams will be face to face for the third time this season.
While Asia Lions won the first game by nine runs, Bharat Maharaja defeated them by 10 wickets in the second game.
World Giants are on top of the points table with six points from four matches. Asia Lions are second with four points from as many matches while India’s Maharajas have won just one match so far.
