Shoaib Akhtar Criticizes Indian Media for Biased Coverage of India-Pakistan Matches
Shoaib Akhtar, a former fast bowler, has criticized the Indian media for presenting India as superior over Pakistan in international cricket. On Sunday, October 24, Pakistan beat Virat Kohli’s India by ten wickets at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the Super 12 match of the T20 World Cup 2021.
“Why does the Indian media portray that their team cannot lose a match? This is cricket. Pakistan comprehensively beat India and the same can happen to Pakistan. That’s the beauty of the game,” the 46-year-old said on his official YouTube channel.
“I understand why media do it, it is their business. I will never understand how ex-cricketers who have played cricket at the highest level use such foul language against their own cricket team after they suffer a defeat. It is extremely disappointing,” he stated.
