In an interview with Zainab Abbas, Akhtar said that he came from London to watch the game. “I was angry because Asif dropped a simple catch but I couldn’t say anything to him because he recently came out of a family tragedy.”
Well, this passionate cricket fan’s reaction full of disappointment and anger was natural because Pakistan disappointed their fans with their poor fielding on the day.
