Zulfi Bukhari accepts challenge to face ‘Rawalpindi Express’ in nets

LAHORE – Former Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis, Zulfi Bukhari Tuesday accepted the challenge of former Pakistani cricketer and fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar, to face him in the nets.

Cricketer turned analyst initially challenged Pakistani famous host and actor, Fahad Mustafa to face him for an over and also announced to gift him a motorbike – if survived.  

The Actor in Law seemed afraid to face the world’s fastest bowler in the history of international cricket as he did not take up the challenge while former PM’s aide certainly did.

PM’s close friend, while responding to Akhtar’s tweet, wrote he’s ready to face the fastest bowler in the world. Both seemed confident as first Bukhari pledged to donate a bike for every ball he misses.

Akhtar, known for his outspoken behavior, also appeared to be certain as he also pledged to donate a bike on every ball Bukhari manages to touch but with the bat only. The right-arm pacer also sounds inquisitive as he asked ‘When is this challenge to be met?’

Check out the whole banter between the two:

On the other hand, Bukhari has also returned to Pakistan and offered himself for accountability as he has been named in an inquiry into the Rawalpindi Ring Road scam.
