Lahore- Shoaib Akhtar , in an interview to The Cricket Monthly revealed his strange views regarding fast bowling.

“I wanted to copy Waqar, Imran and Wasim. That's what you call inspiration. Then it became my passion. Then it became my madness. And in that madness, I found the method to become the fastest,” he said.

“I used to bowl in the streets, copying Waqar's action,” he added.

Shoaib said, “Being a fast bowler is the best thing in cricket. You are running in, the crowd is behind you and you enjoy it. The heart pumps more blood and you take in more oxygen.”

"I used to throw rocks on the mountains next to my house. I used to build up muscles by throwing rocks," he shared his past.
