“It is interesting to note that in spite of a decade-long attempt to ‘Islamise’ the team in which Akhtar’s unholy antics were severely scoffed at, it is he alone who today stands as perhaps the only noted player of the last ten years who is entirely untouched by a match-fixing scandal” Nadeem Farooq Paracha.

‎”A bloke’s bowling at 150kph trying to rip the fingers off your arms or probably even worse. It gets your blood going and the adrenalin pumping. You are in a fight. And to me that’s what Test cricket is all about.”
