Former cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has voiced strong criticism against the current rules and regulations in cricket, labeling today’s cricket as “fraudulent.” Akhtar particularly pointed out the use of two balls and the restriction on the number of fielders outside the 30-yard circle.

In his statement, Akhtar expressed discontent, stating, “Today‚Äôs cricket is fraud. Batters are scoring 30,000 runs with the introduction of two new balls.” He went on to express admiration for legendary players like Sachin Tendulkar, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Yousuf, and Jacques Kallis, emphasizing their achievements with the use of a single ball in 50 overs.

Akhtar extended his support to any player scoring runs but emphasized the impact of fielding restrictions, saying, “However, they will come to know if six fielders are placed outside the 30-yard circle.”

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has faced criticism for altering the game dynamics in favor of batsmen, treating bowlers like bowling machines. Former Indian player Gautam Gambhir echoed similar sentiments, criticizing the preference given to batters, especially evident in the ICC World Cup 2023 games where bowlers faced significant challenges.

Akhtar’s candid remarks add to the ongoing debate surrounding the evolving nature of cricket and its impact on the balance between bat and ball in the modern era. Also read Pakistan Nears $600 Million Loan Deals with Chinese Banks
