I was advised to take performance enhancing drugs: Shoaib Akhtar

Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, who is famous in the world for his fast bowling, has recently made a shocking revelation about drugs. He recently told that when he started his career, he was advised to take performance-enhancing drugs. This was said by Shoaib Akhtar at the annual function of 'Anti-Narcotics Forces'. He said, 'He was advised to do so by many people but he flatly refused to accept this advice.'

Cricket Pakistan quoted this former fast bowler as saying, 'When I started playing cricket I was told that you can't bowl fast and to get a good speed like 100 mph (160 km / h) Drugs will have to be used. But I always refused to do so. The 45-year-old former player, known as Rawalpindi Express, said in his statement, "Similar advice was given to Mohammad Aamir before the 2010 tour of England. After that he moved to Buri Sangat. '

In the year 2010, Mohammad Aamir and Mohammad Asif were found guilty in spot-fixing along with the then Pakistani captain Salman Batt. After that Asif and Butt were banned for life, while Mohammad Aamir was banned for 5 years. Let us also tell you that in 2006, Shoaib was banned before the Champions Trophy played in India for taking banned drugs.
