Former Pakistani fast-bowler turned commentator and YouTuber, Shoaib Akhtar, has appealed to the masses to follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) to defend themselves against COVID.

Almost two weeks earlier, the Rawalpindi Express had reminded the BBCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) and PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) to reconsider restarting PSL and IPL.

Now that the IPL is canceled, the fast-bowler tweeted that he saw it coming. He even mentioned that he’d earlier suggested the Indian Cricket Board to reassess its decision.
