Shoaib Akhtar has requested prayers as he is undergoing “hopefully” his last knee surgery in Australia.
According to him, the procedure was postponed for several months.
The Rawalpindi Express shared a video message on social media revealing that he has been injecting painkillers since December of last year because the surgery had been postponed by a few months.
Akhtar shared that he has undergone five surgeries earlier, but it was all “worth it” as playing for Pakistan as a fast bowler meant a great deal to him.
“But this is the pain that I have to endure. It will be an eight-hour partial knee replacing surgery and hopefully, I will come out right and I don’t look forward to it,” he added.
