But fast forward to 2018 and the 'Rawalpindi Express' has managed to unsettle some social media users.
Akhtar, on Sunday, revisited his golden days and shared a collage of batsmen from different nations struggling to play him. He wrote, "Don of cricket as they called me but never enjoyed hurting people but I must say when I was out there I just ran in for the love of my country & for the people around the world.."

While his heart was in the right place, Twitterati were quick to remind him of legendary Sachin Tendulkar hitting him all over the park during the 2003 World Cup battle in South Africa. India emerged victorious thanks to Tendulkar's 75-ball 98 run knock.
