Shoaib Akhtar says Shahrukh Khan cheated him
 
 
 
Former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has said in his autobiography that India's batting maestro "chickened" out of Faisalabad Test because he was unwilling to face his pace. The fastest bowler in the history of cricket, Shoaib Akhtar has made some sensational claims in his autobiography 'Controversially Yours'. In his book Shoaib has said, "I bowled (Sachin) a particularly fast ball which he, to my amazement didn't even touch. He walked away That was the first time I saw him walk away from me-that, too, on the slow track at Faisalabad." Taking a dig at veteran Indian batsman Rahul Dravid, the former Pakistani stump-wrecker has said that The Wall and Master Blaster are not match winners. "I think players like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid weren't exactly match winners to start with, nor did they know the art of finishing the game," Shoaib said. In his autobiography, Akhtar has also alleged that he was cheated by Shah Rukh Khan and former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi. He states, "Shahrukh and I talked about my not being happy with the money settled on me. Shahrukh and Modi got me to agree. I should have never listened to Modi and Shahrukh." Akhtar, who retired from cricket following the 2011 World Cup, has also shockingly revealed that he tampered with the ball claiming, "everyone tampers with the ball. I did so too. Tampering should be legalised."
