Shoaib Akhtar made several statements after the match. While talking about India, he said – I like India very much. I keep coming to Delhi. My Aadhaar card has also been made, nothing else is left. I want this year’s Asia Cup to be held in Pakistan only. Also its final match should be played between India and Pakistan. I really miss playing in India. India has given me a lot of love. 

Shoaib also mentioned about the alternative country if the Asia Cup is not held in Pakistan. Shoaib Akhtar said – Asia Cup should be held in Pakistan or Sri Lanka. Recently, Virat Kohli scored a century in Test cricket after a gap of almost three years. On this innings of Kohli, Shoaib said – I am not surprised to see Kohli returning to his old rhythm. He is a very experienced player. 

In the match between Asia Lions and India Maharaj, Akhtar got to bowl only one over. India won this match by 10 wickets. When Shoaib Akhtar came to bowl, India Maharaja team opener Gambhir and Robin Uthappa were at the crease. Both these batsmen thrashed Shoaib’s over and scored 12 runs. Shoaib, 47, got so tired in this one over that he had to leave the field.

That old age was not visible in Shoaib’s bowling, nor was his fitness good. Shoaib went out of the ground panting. Impact player was used in his place, after this Isuru Udana of Sri Lanka was brought on the field and he replaced Akhtar. So far five matches have been played in the Legends League.

Asia has won two of its three matches. At the same time, India Maharaj has won only one out of three matches, he had to face defeat in two matches. World Giants have won two out of three matches.
