Shoaib Akhtar Trolled For Posting Incomprehensible Tweet In English
Known for his express bowling, former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar was on Monday trolled severely after he posted a tweet in English which social media users found extremely difficult to comprehend.
Akhtar tweeted about having the honour of meeting Samina Baig - first Pakistani woman to conquer Mt. Everest - but his English confused everyone on the micro-blogging site.
Akhtar's incomprehensible tweet had the entire virtual world talking, with people advising him to restrict his English to answers like, "boys played very well."

And while hundreds struggled to understand the meaning of his tweet, some social media users from both India and Pakistan came together to troll the former speedster.

This social media user suggested that he should write in Urdu instead.

People were so confused that one user suggested Akhtar outsource his Twitter account and make it easy for them to understand what exactly he wants to convey.
"Shoaib Akhtar bhai needs to outsource his twitter account like Afridi (sic)," said this Twitter user.
