  • Shoaib Akhtar expresses his desire to be Indian bowling coach

It all began a few days ago when Rawalpindi Express took to his Twitter account and teased Steve Smith saying that he could get the Aussie batter out on the fourth delivery after hurling three "hurting bouncers".

The ICC, supposedly an impartial body, had reacted to Akhtar's remarks by sandwiching his tweet between two Michael Jordan screenshots from his trending documentary "The Last Dance".

The 44-year-old Akhtar has garnered reputation of making controversial statements either on his YouTube channel or on social media.

Shoaib Akhtar has taken exception to a tweet by ICC. "Basically this is how the state of affairs are run there", Akhtar tweeted. "Sorry i couldn't find any, only found some real videos".

Akhtar represented Pakistan in 46 Tests, 163 ODIs and 15 T20 Internationals while taking 178 wickets, 247 wickets and 19 wickets respectively in each format.

On Wednesday, Shoaib Akhtar responded to the defamation notice sent to him by the Cricket Board's legal counsel Tafazzul Rizvi, calling it "legally defective, merit-less and misconceived". "Like I said, I am going to fight this case till the end because I have done nothing wrong by highlighting the weak areas in PCB's working".
