Shoaib Akhtar in Brian Lara CricketAt least the recent news proves that Shoaib can still hold a bat. We were starting to wonder whether he was actually a cricketer at all or just some sort of soap opera character planted to raise the profile of the Pakistani national side.

We’ve included a picture of him as he appears in Brian Lara Cricket because that’s about the only place you’re ever likely to see him on a cricket field.

This latest incident, as far as we can make out, consists of Shoaib Akhtar twatting Mohammad Asif in the leg because Shahid Afridi called him names. Not sure why Mohammad Asif has to bear the brunt of this. We’re guessing he just felt left out of the drama and dived to take a blow on purpose.

One thing we are sure about is that the BBC’s headline is so fitting, you wonder why it’s never appeared before: “Pakistan tell Shoaib to ‘shut up'”


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. I presume you are all avid Archer’s fans like me and have been following and enjoying the cricket story?
    It even had Mike Gatting in! Wonderful, long may it continue.
    Although I do have to say that I have found a few of the recent plots a little racy for my tastes. They should stick to farming and cricket.
    Everyone should stick to farming and cricket.

  2. :O :O

    Zimbabwe beat the aussies

    while they are still a dire team today made me outrageously happy, yet worried 🙁
