Shoaib Akhtar likely to play fifth ODI against S. AfricaNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:45 am ICT by admin
Shoaib bowled 21 overs and took one wicket in the first innings, the Dawn reported.
“I bowled 21 overs today and am feeling fit for the game,” Shoaib said.
“Resuming cricket for Pakistan gives me a great feeling and hopefully, I will be succeeding in convincing the selectors with my fitness and form to get back my place in the team,” he added.
Shoaib, nicknamed ‘Rawalpindi Express’, has been under suspension for the past two weeks due to serious disciplinary charges levelled against him by the PCB.
His ban will end with the fourth game against the South Africans in the on-going ODI series, making him eligible for the fifth and final match scheduled to be played at Karachi on October 29. (ANI)
