“Will eat grass but Pakistani Army budget should be raised”, says Shoaib Akhtar

Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akthar who always finds himself surrounded with various controversies, earlier he used to be in highlight of his game on ground. But now of his vocal & outspoken nature he becomes the talk of the town.  

Recently with his bewildering off field bouncers he claimed that he is willing to eat grass, if it is enabled an increase in budget for his country’s Army. 

“If allah ever gives me the authority, I will eat grass myself but I will increase the budget of the army,” said Shoaib Akhtar in an interview with a popular Pakistani news channel. 

Earlier he had said that he turned down a 17,000 Pound contract to play County cricket for Nottinghamshire so that he could fight in the Kargil War. He added he was willing to take bullet for his country & die for this mother nation when Kargil War errupted in 1999 between Indian & Pakistani forces.  

After giving this perplexed interview, Akthar has surrounded himself with another controversy & made a meme out of himself, which has just started off on the internet.
