Shoaib Akhtar – Old Habits Die Hard!

He is a rebel at heart and he loves to party! These are two vital facts about Shoaib Akhtar that seem to have over-shadowed his professional statistics in Cricket in the past couple of years it seems. Amid all the controversies and confrontations he has been involved (or is currently involved) in, he wastes no opportunity to do what he desires the most: party hard and late in the company of the beautiful. In Kolkata, he did just that, yet again!

According to mid-day news website, the Pakistan team management is extremely upset over his recent romps at a discotheque which actually happens to be the third time he has been caught partying out when he shouldn’t be. Team manager Talat Ali has every reason to be frowning at Shoaib Akhter. His late night partying habits are getting a bit out of hand and some thing needs to be done about it soon. Last time I checked, we needed professionals not celebrities to play for our country. I am assuming and silently praying that PCB realises this and do take care of our very own party boy.

My personal prediction: May be Shoaib is happy about finally getting a role in Bollywood that he was talking about during the second test. He wanted to ‘express’ and ‘celebrate’ his upcoming success and therefore did what he does better than bowling. Maybe it is about time he has a career change.

Ah well, cest la vie!

    What’s the big deal! He attends parties and GTs all the time in Pakistan. How come PCB is ok with that and not when he is having a good time any where else??

    Layla the big deal is that he represents us all and has a history of unpleasant and below the belt encounters with the administration and players time and again. Would you really really like a party-loving, womanizing, coke snorting piece of junk like shoaib represent your country? Would you really? Think real hard and then you will see yourself.

    why PCB is jealous what shoib is getting , ?

    Philosophically, PCB’s success should not be marred by just one person or player. They lay claim to be ‘doing their job’ at getting the best from every player. And I bet they are, so how does Shoaib’s partying going to hurt the team?

    I see this not as a professional infraction, rather a more religious one. People in the National team and PCB have bigger beards to look beyond themselves and their religion. Sure they have Kaniera playing for them, but that too out of pure necessity. Kaniera is a good bowler, even better than Afridi.

    If Shoaib is making it to the training sessions, putting it in his best in the nets, and has the ability to construct a win, what has any of that got to do with who and how he dances with? We need the win, if he can construct one for us, make him play 🙂 It’s as simple as that.

    Phil what makes you think he makes it to the training sessions all the time? He has attitude problems on and off the field and the most recent example of it was the Asif-Afridi-Shoaib incident. Okay so maybe the other two were to be blames as well for inflaming the situation but you can not dismiss the fact that Shoaib has had problems with the late Woolmer as well. How many times have we heard about him not ‘in a mood’ to come to the nets or giving no attention to woolmer when he asked him not to sneak out without permission. If the entire team is abiding by a conduct, it does not exclude Shoaib. Also I am sorry to say this but he is not as good a bowler as he used to be. He’s lost his edge and is nothing more than raw pace. It’s ok to be raw pace for a while but then you need to have some brains to use that pace to ur advantage. He has become too predictable and is the most injury prone player in the squad. Add to that his stubborness and that does it. Just my opinion.
