‘I just feel like hitting him’: Akhtar’s message to Kaif in Legends Cricket League says ‘don’t walk at me’ – VIEW | Cricket

The Legends Cricket League is a platform for former cricketers to revive their days of yesteryear, and Shoaib Akhtar certainly took this opportunity. Representing the Asian Lions against the Indian Maharajas, Akhtar was back on his fiery best bowling with unbridled speeds and distressing the experienced Indian batters.

During the match, Akhtar had the opportunity to bowl with a player he knows very well, Mohammad Kaif. Kaif and Akhtar go far back. In fact, during the 2004 bilateral ODI series, Kaif and Akhtar tried to challenge each other, as the Indian batter’s approach to give him the Pakistani pacemaker’s attack didn’t end well with the bowler.

On Thursday, however, he saw it repeat as Kaif consistently outran Akhtar during their face-off. After the match, Akhtar joked in the post-match interview that he wanted to punch Kaif because he was walking towards him again through the wicket.

“Mohammad Kaif walked towards me again. I just feel like hitting him. Because I’ve often told him ‘don’t run into me’ in the past, but he did it again,” Akhtar said after the Maharaj’s six-wicket win over the Lions.

Akhtar is back on the cricket pitch just days after losing his mother and the former Pakistani speedster who finally put a smile on his face after the last few days of testing as he returned to a place that gave him so much.

“It was fun. I lost my mother three weeks ago, but today I had a smile on my face, the first time since my mother passed away. But this gives me great satisfaction – bowling, running in and bowling fast”, said Aktar.

“I tried to put on a good show for the people. As you know, people like me have a long run without knowing I have an injured knee, but I did my very best in the last one to get Yusuf Pathan out. I was hoping to get my team back in the game, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. He played way too well.”
