In a hilarious by the former legend and Pakistani cricket player Shoaib Akhtar, there was a time back then in 2008, when the speedster was playing in the IPL for the KKR team.

Shoaib Akhtar, who is retired now, shares some anecdote which is hilarious, from the match that happened between the KKR and the Mumbai Indians in 2008. This march took place at the Wankhede Stadium. Based on what Shoaib said the sports news channel, Sportskeeda, we’ll try to share a few highlights from the same.

Shoaib, who has many favorites here in India as well as across the world, said that when he was playing for the KKR team. In that particular match, KKR’s team was able to score only 67 runs as a target for Mumbai Indians.

Now when the KKRs came to bowl, it was the Rawalpindi express of Pakistan VS The son of Mumbai, the great Sachin Tendulkar. Well, it was time to begin the action, and the speedster started him over against the batter on strike Sachin Tendulkar.

While the master-blaster was playing, the Pakistani and then KKR team’s bowler, Shoaib somehow managed to grab the wicket of Sachin in the first over itself, and there it was for the bowler! The crowd in the Wankhede Stadium became a bit hostile due to the incident and started reacting to it. Look at Shoaib’s own words and see how hilarious it comes out,

“It was a beautiful ground and a fantastic atmosphere. The stadium was fully packed. But I dismissed Sachin Tendulkar in the first over itself and that was a huge mistake. Then I got a lot of abuse when I was a fine leg. Sourav Ganguly told me, ‘Come to mid-wicket, these people will kill you. Who told you to dismiss Sachin? That too in Mumbai?'”

Hahaha, it was indeed very hilarious to see the way Ganguly, saved the life of the cricketer and how the bowler manage to escape and let us the hilarious situation today.

Later on, Sanath Jayasuriya, from the Mumbai Indians team playing, smashed 48 runs to guide the KKR team to its victory back then.

The beautiful thoughts from the former days, are sometimes very cherishing, although it may look terrifying at that particular time period when look behind there are so many things to learn and to cherish and in a similar way to what Shoaib did.

Shoaib Akhtar is the greatest bowler of his time and his bowling speed clocked more than 160 KMPH, making him the fastest player to bowl in the world. Still, there is no one, who can match his speed and the cricketer remains a legend forever.
