Former Pakistani bowler Shoaib Akhtar criticized Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for releasing “the worst song that he had heard in the history of the PSL”.
The Rawalpindi Express said that the PSL 6 song “Groove Mera” is the worst song ever released.
“If the 10 worst songs of the PSL are compiled, this song will be number one. Do you have any shame?”
He said that his children are also scared of the song and use it to make them sleep.
“My kids are scared of this song. When they don’t sleep, I tell them I’ll play it for them. That immediately scares them,” he said.
“Neither did I get the lyrics nor the song? What does groove mean? What is a groove? Even the singers who were singing I am sure did not know the meaning of the word groove,” he added.
However, the former bowler said that the singers have nothing to do with the song as they were told to do their work in that way.
Shoaib also mocked Young Stunners costumes in the song and said,
“What have you done? You hid the clothes of our Chief Selector Mohammad Waseem and dressed the rappers in them.”
The right-arm bowler said that PCB should make a good song next time instead of taking the criticism to heart.
“Make a better song next time and if you can’t, let me know I will sing it for you,” he said.
The song was recorded in the voices of Naseebo Lal, Aima Baig, and Young Stunners. The video features star cricketers Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shaan Masood, and Wahab Riaz.
