Review: Controversially Yours | Cricket | ESPNcricinfo

I must say the book was not disappointing! Shoaib could controverssially entertained his readers with a ringside view of these intricacies; it feels like a golden opportunity lost. How can he discredit his country of birth when all he achieved was in the same dis functional country, the same controversially yours shoaib akhtar system and the same unimpressed cricket control board?

Though a lot of senior players of Pakistan insulted him and tried to spoil his career, he never ever bothered about them. They also reveal how even the topmost leaders in the government have a direct say in cricket affairs. Amazon Prime Music Stream millions of songs, ad-free. One singularly glaring feature of this autobiography is the extraordinary self-praise and gloating contained within the covers.

Shoaib Akhtar is a former Pakistani cricketer. Unnecessary use of urdu controversially yours shoaib akhtar, attempts to add satire when it didn’t fit did to the book what shoaib did to his career.

He tells controversially yours shoaib akhtar about the hardships he’s had to face since his childhood. If anyone wants to read it borrow from me, don’t buy it, not worth it. From controversially yours shoaib akhtar dressing room incidents, to Shoaib’s naughty childhood If not for anything else just one chapter called ‘The dressing room’ makes hilarious reading.

I never saw anyone taking on foul mouthed Aussies like Akhtar did. Before that, he played informal street games, including gilli-dandaand ran a lot – everywhere, aimlessly – because it made him feel free.


Take away this shameless vanity and what emerges is a disturbing portrait of Pakistani cricket where captains are spineless slaves, one fast bowler controversially yours shoaib akhtar against the another,a former captain drives taxi in England and players contemplate suicide. You keep expecting to be placed inside the fast bowler’s head yoours he psycho-analyses the batsman, adjusts the field, and contemplates his wicket-taking plans, but it never happens.

Such an apt title.

This player hides nothing, descriptive and honest-book containing bold narrative controversially yours shoaib akhtar going through some trying times but leaving his mark where he went. Insights into his greatest spells in Colombo and New Zealand are missing and what we get instead are his run-ins with his teammates,coaches,umpires and PCB.

This catches readers eyes.

He insinuates that Sachin Tendulkar played for his records first and his team next. A particularly funny anecdote involves Saqlain Mushtaq chasing around Javed Miandad with a bat and the other teammates following them with a smile in their faces.

Sep 09, Ali rated it it was amazing Shelves: In a way, the whole controversy surrounding the book’s launch captures his life and career – egged on by a sense of bravado he talks controversially yours shoaib akhtar nonsense in an interview, blown out of proportion and context, unable to backtrack because of his ego and the spotlight on him, and controversially yours shoaib akhtar has to retract his statements, asking everyone to read the book – which actually doesn’t talk about Sachin ‘trembling’ at all in the first place.
