Ex-Pakistani cricketer, Shoaib Akhtar showed utter class in a recent interview with an Indian channel after Pakistan won the Champions Trophy final against the ‘Team in Blue’.

The ‘Rawalpindi Express’ talked sensibly unlike senior personalities from India such as Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal who spiked hatred amongst the youth through social media.

Shoaib Akhtar started by Congratulating the Indian team for reaching the finals instead of bashing them.

“As a Pakistani, I would like to tell you to give your team a pat on the back instead of criticizing them”

He also added,

“Yes there was a mistake when they let Pakistan bat first, but i truly feel that too many ‘big things’ were said before the match, which Allah did not like.”

The ex-cricketer seems to be hinting towards the overconfidence portrayed by India supporters before the final. Renown personalities had made fun of the Pakistani cricket team, discrediting them before watching what they were actually capable of.

He finally added that Pakistan would have been put to pressure if India had decided to bat first.
