After a shameful defeat against India in World T20 match, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar is very unhappy.

Working as a guest expert on Star Sports Network, Shoaib Akhtar lost his cool with the anchor on live TV during a post-match discussion.

As the camera panned back to the guests after a break, the host stifled a laugh as ‘Mauka Mauka’ blared in the background.

Akhtar got terribly irritated with the sarcastic laughter, and questioned why the host laughed as the jingle played.


“You are sitting here to ask my opinion or ridicule me? You can’t call me to the studio and make fun of me,” he further added as Sapru tried to calm him down.


Kapil Dev, who was sitting next to Shoaib, rescued a possibly embarrassing situation for the anchor, as he continued talking about the India-Pakistan match.

“Give Shoaib some time and let him cool down,” Dev told Sapru.


Earlier, Virender Sehwag had said that former Pakistani players praised Indian cricketers on TV shows only for monetary reasons.
