Shoaib Akhtar Slams Abdul Razzaq For His Distasteful Comment On Aishwarya Rai-TGN

Pakistan’s journey in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 has come to a halt, winning only four out of nine games. The disappointing performance has triggered a wave of criticism, with former Pakistan players expressing their dismay over the team’s lackluster displays on the field.

Amidst the critique, one particular statement stands out, making headlines and raising eyebrows. Former Pakistan all-rounder, Abdul Razzaq, took the opportunity to voice his concerns about the intentions of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). In a press conference attended by cricket stalwarts like Umar Gul and Shahid Afridi, Razzaq made a bizarre analogy involving the name of Aishwarya.

Razzaq, while hitting out at PCB, stated, “We don’t really intend to improve and enhance the players, in my opinion. That will never happen if you believe that I will marry Aishwarya (Rai) to have a good-natured and moral child. Therefore, you must first amend your intentions.”

The cricketing community was quick to react to Razzaq’s controversial statement. Former Pakistan speedster, Shoaib Akhtar, condemned the inappropriate comparison, emphasizing that no woman should be disrespected in such a manner. He took to social media, posting on X (formerly Twitter): “I highly condemn the inappropriate joke/comparison made by Razzaq. People seated beside him should have raised their voice right away rather than laughing & clapping.”

Shoaib Akhtar, known for his straightforward opinions, expressed his disappointment with Razzaq’s remark. The former cricketer stressed the importance of respecting women and criticized those who found humor in the inappropriate comparison. Akhtar’s strong condemnation resonated with many cricket fans who shared his sentiments.

What adds to the disgrace is the reaction of former Pakistan cricketers, Umar Gul and Shahid Afridi, who were present during Razzaq’s statement. Instead of disapproving, they clapped and smiled, causing further outrage among fans and fellow players.

Shoaib Akhtar’s condemnation wasn’t just limited to words on social media. He called for immediate action, urging those present at the press conference to raise their voice against the inappropriate statement. The incident has sparked a broader conversation about the responsibility of players and officials to address controversial remarks within the cricketing community.
