    Shoaib Akhtar

    Shoaib is no doubt very grateful to the PCB for their frankness with this particular press release...

    Does veer towards the "too much information", frankly. Surely "routine but necessary surgery" would've sufficed?

    Some score settling going on IMHO.

    genuine

    Feel the love. Akhtar sure is.

    Like this bit:
    "The PCB's unusually graphic press release said that a three-member medical panel appointed by the PCB"

    So they needed three members to assess the one member in question?

    Crossed the line by publicly embarrassing Shoaib. That said

    I can't imagine the sledges he'll get now.

    In any case, as much as I don't like Akhtar, that is very highly inappropriate. It should obviously be a personal matter. In the western world, he could sue them.

    Can't imagine any opponents will want to shake hands at the end of the day's play.

    Does that count as a method of ball-tampering when he shines it in the crease of his trousers?

    Not too much sharing of boxes in his team, I hope.

    Yep indeed. And since it's been published in the western world, perhaps he will...

    Might open lucrative new sponsorship opportunities.



    "Hi, I'm Shoaib Akhtar. Do you suffer from the agony of dick-warts?


    I used to, until I tried Wart-blaster's electric sander. It has three grades of sand-paper, each of which will help leave you dick wart-free, so you can get on with you life. (pauses to bowl and knock over the stumps). HOWZAT!!! Try Wart-blaster - and enjoy the confidence!"

    A groin injury will have been the best euphemism.

    Oh my, quite unprofessional and yet, quite hilarious. At least Shoaib had a smidgen of dignity left* when it was a 'skin problem in the groin area'.

    *Scrap that.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Anything the PCB does is highly inappropriate. As much as I despise Shoaib, I hope he does sue them and win some money.

    It isn't the first time PCB has done this to Shoaib Akhtar, though it ups the ante. From his drug ban:
    "Occasional smoker and a past history of infrequent alcohol consumption, with a penchant for western lifestyle, sexually active Shoaib has an unremarkable medical history."
