Shoaib Akhtar is probably one of the toughest critics to please. Known for taunting his fellow players, the Rawalpindi Express demanded that former Test captain Younis Khan retires from cricket. “Please give up cricket now”, he told Younis Khan, reported Dunya News. “I had retired from cricket around 4 years ago”, he added.

The fast bowler also said that he is interested in owning a team in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL).

“Everyone is excited about PSL and so am I,” Akhtar said while speaking to the media, according to ESPN Cricinfo.

“It’s like a gift to the nation; it’s not [just] the brand of PCB, it’s the brand of Pakistan. I am interested in buying a team in the league and want to serve Pakistan cricket this way by promoting cricketers and making more Shoaib Akhtar’s who can bowl at 100 (mph). My business partner and I are testing the waters; assessing whatever is put on the table and how it suits us.”

Akhtar apparently does not mind the inclusion of the spot-fixing convicts Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir back in the team.

Previously he bashed the Pakistani cricket team during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and also called Pakistani captains ‘Paindu’.
