Return to Book Page. This player hides nothing, descriptive and honest-book containing bold narrative about going through some trying times but leaving his mark where he went.
Shoaib Akhtar in full flow was a delight but this book is just rants. He use to bowl the last over of a test match at the same speed that he bowled his first.
Specially who followed him since his early career will enjoy more. I don’t see any natural fast bowler after me. Bangladesh gained test status.

This club has patrons within the Pakistan Army which itself is the most merit aware institution in Pakistan. Shoaib holds the record shoakb being the fastest bowler in the history of international cricket, he made his Test debut in November and played his first One Day International four months later.
And most of all Shaoib’s anti-Pakistani rants were very difficult to digest. In this he has outdone several other famous cricketing names from Pakistan. Kahtar sheds light on how he had been misunderstood throughout and yet battled it all out. This cricket player hides nothing conrroversially lives up to his reputation of controversial actions. Kamran Ali Ahmed rated it really liked it Sep 23, Dec 24, Huma rated it really liked it Shelves: Did u expect cricket to be one of the three?
Being a Pakistani myself, I can pretty much confirm that very very few schools in Pakistan have counsellors, so I don’t know what Shoaib is trying to prove here especially when you controversiaoly his pretty low middle class upbringing? Success isn’t easy to avail.
Shoaib sells the drama
The chapter towards the end named Dressing Room is so funny I laughed out loud: Flamboyant players like Yuvi and Kohli have been managed well and we have made the most of their talent. Preview — Controversially Yours by Shoaib Akhtar.
