‘I always refused to use drugs’: Shoaib Akhtar
ISLAMABAD: Former Test cricketer Shoaib Akhtar on Monday said he had always refused to use drugs to enhance performance in the game of cricket. “When I started paying cricket I was told you can't bowl fast and to achieve good speed of 100 kmph I will have to use drugs. But I have always refused to do so,” he said while addressing the Anti Narcotics Forces' (ANF) annual drug burning ceremony. The Rawalpindi Express revealed without naming that a world class Pakistani cricketer’s career was destroyed just because of drugs. “Similarly Pakistani pacer Muhammad Amir was also cautioned before the tour of England but he was taken away by bad company,” he said.
