Akhtar, who made his debut under Wasim Akram in 1997, played under several Pakistani captains during his career.

Bad management of the board -:

Shoaib Akhtar said, ‘I was not fit to play all the matches. I could play three out of five matches, I was offered the captaincy in 2002, but then if I had played all the matches, I would have played only for a year or two. I have been supportive of my teammates, but the board was very temporary. Management was not right across the board, Pakistan was also facing bad management at that time.’
