In a recent interview, former Pakistan head coach Saqlain Mushtaq revealed that former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar still owes him Rs250. The two players shared a room together when they were first called up to the national team, and Saqlain said that Shoaib borrowed the money from him to buy new clothes after they went to the movies.
Saqlain said that he has been asking Shoaib to return the money for years, but he has always refused. He also said that other players on the team were also afraid to lend Shoaib money because they knew he would never pay them back.
“When teams came to Karachi for a match, 25 people shared a two-room house in Lalukhet. Shoaib and I were roommates.”
“At the time, we didn’t get a daily allowance. We would leave home with 1,500 to 2,000 rupees. I had only 250 rupees left, and Shoaib didn’t have any money. After we went to the movies, Shoaib wanted to buy new pants and a shirt. He used the leftover money to buy them.”
Shoaib Akhtar has not yet commented on Saqlain’s claims. However, he has a history of financial problems. In 2013, he was declared bankrupt by a Pakistani court. He has also been accused of tax evasion and money laundering.
