Shoaib Akhtar Looking to Come Back for the Bangladesh Tour

Pakistan speedstar Shoaib Akhtar looks to come back in the Pakistan team for next month’s Bangladesh tour after recovering his recent knee injury. The star pacer will, however, miss Pakistan’s upcoming two-match test series against Sri Lanka at home due to injury. It was earlier reported that Shoaib Akhtar might need to undergo a surgery on his knee, but the pacer recently said that he did not need to undergo any surgery to get over the injury. He sent the MRI reports to doctors in Australia and England, and his doctors advised no surgery for the injury as his injury could be cured through injections.

Shoaib Akhtar is a controversial character in Pakistan cricket, given his series of suspensions imposed by PCB as evidence. Since February 2006, he has taken part in only 3 tests and 11 ODI matches. He returned to international cricket in last August’s Quadrangular T20 tournament in Canada, after serving a brief suspension imposed by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) due to his indiscipline. Shoaib Akhtar’s recent form is not impressive at all as he conceded 88 runs in 13 overs for just one wicket, taking part in the first two ODI matches during the recent three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka at home. Now, let us see if he can come back from injury in time to catch the trip to Bangladesh next month.
