Former Pakistan bowler Shoaib Akhtar was asked to leave in the middle of a TV show due to a dispute with the host. Akhtar appeared on a TV show with David Gower and Sir Vivian Richards, where they discussed the ongoing T20 World Cup. The presenter did not agree with Akhtar's comments on Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf.
"You're being a little rude, and I don't want to say this, but if you're being overly smart, you may go." "I'm saying it live on the air," Dr. Nauman Niaz told Akhtar.

After the break, they both try to sort out. Please see my earlier tweet when they exchanged harsh words during the live transmission. pic.twitter.com/kXA06Armxn— Kamran Malik (@Kamran_KIMS) October 26, 2021
Responding, to the issue Shoaib Akhtar tweeted that "Multiple clips are circulating on social media, so I thought I shud clarify Dr. noman was obnoxious and rude when he asked me to leave the show. It was embarrassing, especially when you have legends like Sir Vivian Richards and David Gower sitting on the set with some of my contemporaries."

and seniors and millions watching. I tried to save everyone from embarrassment by saying I was pulling dr nomans leg with this mutual understanding that dr noman will also politely apologise and we will move on with the show ,which he refused to do. Then I had no other choice .— Shoaib Akhtar (@shoaib100mph) October 26, 2021
