Shoaib Akhtar, the former fast bowler of Pakistan, is very active on social media. Responding to his fan queries on Instagram Story, he made such a response, which is quite debated. Akhtar was asked by a fan whether he could break his fast ball record of 161.3km if he played against India in the semifinals of the 2011 World Cup. Indian fans do not like Akhtar’s answer.

In 2011, a semifinal match between India and Pakistan was played in Mohali, in which Team India won by 29 runs. Sachin Tendulkar scored 85 in that match and was awarded the Man of the Match award. ‘If you played against India in Mohali in 2011, would you have broken the record of 161.3?’ A fan asked Akhtar. In reply, Akhtar wrote, “Although I could not break the 161.3 record, I would break some players’ toes or ribs.”
“There are many big challenges ahead of Team India in the final of the World Test Championship,” Ajit Agarkar said
Akhtar played his last international match in 2011. He played his last ODI against Sri Lanka in March. Shoaib Akhtar was included in the Pakistan squad for the World Cup, but was not given a chance to play a single match. Speaking of that match, India won the toss and decided to bat first. India scored 260 for nine in 50 overs. Virender Sehwag (38) and Suresh Raina (36 not out) were the other batsmen. The entire Pakistan team was reduced to 231 in 49.5 overs.
