Akhtar terms current Australia team 'weakest'
Australia are on the receiving end of backlash from spectators all around the world.

Akhtar, famously known as The Rawalpindi Express, took to the social media platform Twitter on Thursday (October 18) to recall how the Aussies once used to give Pakistan the run for for their money during 1990s.

“Still remember the mighty Australian team playing against Pak back in 1999 giving us run for our money & now it’s really painful to see the performances of weakest Australian team which is not right up there.. Just wondering what happened to rich Australian Cricket culture??” Akhtar put up a question on his personal Twitter handle.

In another tweet, Akhtar shared his personal philosophy saying he thought that was dying around the world. Then in suggestion, he asked the International Cricket Council (ICC) to raise Test match fee to stop cricketers from participating in foreign cricket leagues.

“Don’t you agree that cricket is dying around the world. Just want to know guys what should ICC do to save cricket? How about keeping 100000 dollar fee for a test match so people won’t go to any other leagues & just play test cricket. Your opinion?” Akhtar wrote.

After struggling throughout the match to somwhow end up with a draw in the first Test, Australia are now staring at a mammoth task in hand, as they have to score another 507 runs with 9 wickets remaining in the last two days to come up with a victory in the ongoing second and last Test match of the series.
