Guess What Shoaib Akhtar is Up To?
The former cricketer is making a drastic career change
Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar and India's Harbhajan Singh are gearing up to debut as judges on the upcoming comedy show, Indian Mazak League, on Life OK, according to a report in Mumbai Mirror.
Shoaib was quoted saying, "I've had my share of fun in the dressing room with a-joke-a-minute with contemporaries like Mohammad Yousuf and Shoaib Malik and seniors like Wasim Akram and Inzamam-ul-Haq. There was so much of banter and harmless leg-pulling that my jaws would ache. Among the Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag, Ashish Nehra and Yuvraj Singh are a riot.”
When asked about his upcoming show, he insists that more than being a judge he is happy to be a part of a fun show. He said, "Now I will be paid to enjoy the jokes, I don't think there can be a better job."
