Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar had questioned English debutant Jofra Archer’s sportsmanship after his ferocious bouncer struck Australia batsman Steve Smith during the second Ashes Test which ended in a draw. Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh came up with a cheeky response to Akhtar’s reaction.
‘Yes you did! But your actual words were hope you’re alright mate be-cause there are a few more coming,’ Yuvraj wrote on Twitter.
While Pakistani cricket champ Shoaib Akhtar may have passed on a disapproving remark over the conduct of England’s Jofra Archer after he struck Steve Smith, Yuvraj Singh in a quirky response left fans on both sides of the border in fits.
The former Pakistani fast bowler had called out Archer over his conduct and lack of sportsmanship after he was spotted ‘smirking’ as Australian batsman Steve Smith was hit by one of his bouncers.
Akhtar on Twitter wrote that during his cricketing days he’d always be the first one to reach out to the injured player and check to see if he is doing fine.
Responding to his tweet, the Indian batting icon made a hilarious remark that is getting rejoiced by cricket fans all around.
‘Yes you did ! But your actual words were hope your alright mate cause there are a few more coming,’ wrote Yuvraj with laughing emoji’s.
Bouncers are a part & parcel of the game but whenever a bowler hits a batsman on the head and he falls, courtesy requires that the bowler must go & check on him. It was not nice of Archer to just walk away while Smith was in pain. I was always the first one to run to the batsman.
