Former IPL chairman mocks Pakistan's Shoaib Akhtar's proposal of coronavirus fund raising Pak India match

ISLAMABAD -Former IPL chairman mocks Pakistan's Shoaib Akhtar's proposal of coronavirus fund raising Pak India match.

Former Indian Premier League (IPL) Chairman Rajeev Shukla, while talking to ANI on Thursday, termed the proposal made by Pakistan’s legendary former pacer Shoaib Akhtar, to hold an Indo-Pak series to help generate money for the coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts, as ‘comical’.

The former IPL chairman called Akhtar a ‘jolly and moody’ man while claiming that the former speedster has a habit of coming up with such ideas time.

“Shoaib Akhtar is a jolly and moody man everyone knows it. Time by time he keeps giving such suggestions and ideas. At this stage, if he is talking about a cricket match between India and Pakistan to raise funds to help both the countries. So, I feel it is a matter of fun. We are not even able to organize IPL, who will come to watch that match who will allow players to come and play?” said Shukla.

Shukla claimed that India was in a precarious situation while Pakistan, on the other hand, is even worse.

“India and Pakistan don’t play in bilateral series, who will organize this match at this current situation of the country is not good and in his country situation us even worst so how can match happen so I feel this statement is comic,” he concluded.
