However, Shoaib said, “I will definitely. My job is to spread knowledge. What I have learned is knowledge and I will spread it. One of the fastest bowlers to have played the game of cricket, he added, “I will produce more aggressive, fast, and more talkative bowlers than the current ones who will tell-off the batsmen in a way that you will enjoy a lot.”

He also added that he would like to “coach” IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders, for whom he has played in the cash-rich T20 league’s inaugural edition.

Akhtar further elaborated, “I had seen him but didn’t know how big a name he was in India. In Chennai, I got to know that he was known as a god in India. Mind you, he is a very good friend of mine. In 1998, when I bowled as fast as I could, the Indian public celebrated with me. I have a big fan following in India.”
