Shoaib Akhtar Resigns From PTV After Being Insulted

Former Pakistan fast bowler and cricket analyst Shoaib Akhtar resigned from PTV after things turned unpleasant between him and host Nauman Niaz on the popular show Game on Hai on Tuesday. As Shoaib Akhtar was going through some cricket trivia — during which he credited the Pakistan Super League’s Lahore Qalandars team for discovering Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf — the show’s host, Nauman Niaz, seemed to take offense and snapped back at Shoaib.

“You’re being a little rude and I don’t want to say this: but if you’re being over smart, you can go. I am saying this on air,” Niaz told a dumbstruck Shoaib, cutting him short and moving to the next guest for their comment. It wasn’t clear what rubbed Niaz the wrong way, and it seemed Shoaib himself was caught off guard. As the tension in the room heightened following the interruption, Niaz called for a commercial break.

Several clips from the segment have been doing the rounds on social media, with a number of Shoaib’s supporters expressing disappointment and anger towards Nauman Niaz for “demeaning a legendary cricketer” on live television.
