Pakistan’s legendary former pacer Shoaib Akhtar, in a Youtube video on Wednesday, hit back at India’s legendary opener Virender Sehwag after an old video of the latter went viral in which he claimed that the Rawalpindi Express praised India in order to make money.
Akhtar claimed that he had a significant amount of money and did not rely on India alone for his huge following. “Sehwag is a casual man who speaks in a very non serious way. He said Shoaib Akhtar needs money which is why he speaks highly of India. India doesn’t feed me, Allah does. I have more money than Sehwag has hairs on his head. Try to take it as a joke,” said Akhtar. “Please try to digest my fame. I have a lot of subscribers on Youtube that are from outside India. 40 percent are from Pakistan, 50 percent from India and others from rest of the world.”
The 44-year-old claimed that he did not agree with the political stance of India but chooses to focus on cricketing matters rather than other controversial topics. “I only anaylse cricket matches. I am not concerned with India’s political situation and I don’t agree with their policies,” he said.
