Shoaib Akhtar Walks Out of GAME ON HAI After being insulted by Dr. Nauman Niaz
Shoaib Akhtar was talking about Aqib Javed on Game On Hai during the T20 live match and said that this was the boy who was brought in through Aqib Javed, Lahore Qalanders, and the Players Development Program. In a video, Lahore Qalandars, a Pakistan Super League franchise, is credited with discovering Shoaib Harris Rauf. Noman Niaz suddenly told Shoaib Akhtar that it was quite inappropriate, I don’t want to say that but if you are becoming over smart then you can go. Meanwhile, Shoaib, who was constantly smiling, suddenly looked surprised in the video. Noman Niaz then ignored Shoaib and started talking to the next guest and announced to take a break without giving Shoaib a chance to talk about his behavior.
After the break, Shoaib Akhtar politely excused and left the show saying:
“A lot of apologies guys, a lot of apologies. I am resigning from PTV. The way I have been treated on national TV, I don’t think I should be sitting here right now. So, I am resigning. Thank you very much”.
