Former Pakistani bowler Shoaib Akhtar taunted Virender Sehwag and sarcastically said that he has more money than Sehwag’s hair on his head.
Shoaib Akhtar’s was witnessed replying on an old video resurfaced on social media in which Sehwag has said that Shoaib Akhter praises rivals India because he needs business.
Akhtar added, “I don’t understand if I’m giving my analysis why it bothers people. I didn’t become famous due to YouTube.”
He further said, “I have a huge fan following in India, but I criticised Indian team when they did not play well in the first ODI against Australia.”
Shoaib Akhtar said, “Just tell me one Pakistani YouTuber who does not praise India when their team does well. Ramiz Raja, Shahid Afridi all praised the Indian side when they do well.”
Earlier Virender Sehwag had said that Akhtar praises India only for business in the country. The legendary batsman had said that Akhtar would not have praised India so much during his playing days.
Not very long ago, he had also caused a stir by saying that Danish Kaneria faced discrimination in the Pakistan team because of being a Hindu. And while he was praised by the Indians for bringing out the problems faced by a minority in Pakistan, he was slammed by his compatriots.
