Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar

Shoaib Akhtar suffers a lot; look what he says in this video

Shoaib Akhtar is currently in Melbourne, Australia, recovering from surgery on both knees. From his hospital bed, the former fast bowler from Pakistan posted an emotional video with a message for his followers. Shoaib urged them to pray for him as he is currently in excruciating pain. The 46-year-old Rawalpindi Express posted a video on their Instagram page. Both of Shoaib Akhtar’s knees have been operated on. In his video, he expressed hope that this would be his last operation.

The former fast bowler said he was still in pain even after 11 years of retirement. He said he could have played another four to five years. But he was aware that if he did, he would become wheelchair bound. He actually bid farewell to cricket for this reason.

The famed Pakistani bowler had previously posted a pre-surgery video message in which he explained that although he had undergone five similar surgeries, it had been “worth it” for him, as representing Pakistan as fast bowler meant so much to him.

Shoaib Akhtar added that his fast bowling during his cricket career is what caused the condition of his bones. But, the cricketer insisted it didn’t matter and he did everything for his country. “If I get the chance, I’ll do it again,” he said.

Akhtar then shared another video where he was going through a post-surgical process. The former cricketer has repeatedly said he wants to become a “bridge” between India and Pakistan. If he could help the two countries become friends in any capacity, he said he would.

Shoaib Akhtar regularly praises India for the love she has for him. He also praises Shah Rukh Khan for taking care of him while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
