But, Kabir, the son of former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif, called Shoaib’s ball too easy. Kabir said that Shoaib’s ball was very fast, so it is very easy for the batsman to hit. The Pakistani bowler jokingly said that there should be a match between my son Mikail and Kabir.
Old matches are being shown on TV channels amid the lockdown till April 14 due to coronavirus in the country. Seeing one such match, Kaif’s son Kabir said this. Kaif shared a video of it and tweeted “Thanks to Star Sports India, finally Kabir gets to relive that historic IND vs PAK game. But junior isn’t too impressed with Papa, says hitting Sohaib must be easy since there is pace in his bowling. Kids today I tell you…phew!
To this, Akhtar replied, “Toh phir @MohammadKaif match ho jaaye Kabir aur Mikael Ali Akhtar ka?
He’ll get his answers about Pace. Haha. Give him my love.”Mikail is the name of Shoaib’s son.
