    Awww - Shoaib Akhtar calls it a day

    mod
    I'm not a Pakistan cricket fan but I am a cricket fan and have enjoyed many a match watching this dude bowl against England and with a few Pakistani mates against other nations.

    I'm actually really sorry to see him retire; a proper good cricketer and a proper good personality.

    He looked genuinly gutted to be retiring when I saw him on SSN. His farewell speach read:-

    "With this announcement it feels like it’s my first death. I have taken this decision after much thought. Pakistan’s last match in this World Cup will also be my last. I hope that will be the final on April 2. I would have loved to continue, perhaps forever, but I must make way for the youngsters to take over,”

    “In my entire career of 18 years, I have had many defeats but countless victories. I am proud that the label of the fastest bowler on the planet was associated with Pakistan. I have no regrets. I made lots of friends but some people have misunderstood me. I thank all the players who played with me and against me. It was an honour to have played with Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis,I know a lot of people will remember me as a controversial person, but I never trod on a wrong path,”

    Made me LOL

    had his errrrrr lets say dodgy moments but was certainly entertaining to watch,sad to see a genuine fast bowler go as they are a dying breed.

    Great bowler, Pakistan don't have a replacement for him.

    He was great to watch when he burst on the scene. Batsmen were surprised at the pace.
