Srinagar: Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar has lashed out at ICC for leaving out star batter Babar Azan from its recently released World Cup 2023 promo.
ICC recently released its official promo on all social media platforms for the ODI World Cup 2023.
‘All it takes one day” is the theme showcased in 2 minutes and 13 seconds video released by ICC.
The video comprises a stunning montage of monumental visuals from past World Cup tournaments, with Shahrukh Khan’s voice used in narration.
However, against everyone’s expectations, the promotional video didn’t feature Pakistan captain Babar Azam, who’s currently the number 1 ODI batsman.
Former Pakistan pacer, Shoaib Akhtar, known for his outspoken nature, didn’t hold back in expressing his frustration through one of his tweets.
“Whoever thought that World Cup promo will be complete without Pakistan & Babar Azam’s significant presence, has actually presented himself as a joke. Come on guys, time to grow up a bit,” Shoaib Akhtar Tweeted.
Shahrukh Khan appears at the end of the video with the prestigious World Cup trophy saying, “For everything ever dreamt for, pushed for, lived for, it takes, one day.”
