Internet is being flooded with the rumors that former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has been selected as a head coach of Lahore.
An unverified Twitter handle @fawadRana_LQ has posted on the microblogging web site. This handle is named on Lahore Qalandar’s owner.
The tweet reads,”Shoaib Akhrar set to be appointed Lahore Qalandars head coach.”
After the tweet, it is assumed that the role of Akhtar would be to primarily work with the young fast bowlers in the Qalandars’ squad, alongside another former Pakistan pacer and the franchise director and Head coach – Aaqib Javed.
BOL News contacted the team management and they refused the story and said there is no such development that has been made yet, and if something happens in the future, media will surely be informed.
Despite this, the social media account was not verified, but several local sports web sites published the story and people on the internet start retweeting and commenting on it.
