Shoaib Akhtar took to Twitter on Wednesday to clarify his position following the Game On Hai controversy

 

“Multiple clips are circulating on social media so I thought I shud clarify. dr noman was obnoxious (sic) and rude when he asked me to leave the show,” Akhtar tweeted.

“It was embarrassing, especially when you have legends like Sir Vivian Richards and David Gower sitting on the set with some of my contemporaries and seniors and millions watching.

“I tried to save everyone from embarrassment by saying I was pulling Dr. Noman’s leg with this mutual understanding that dr noman will also politely apologise and we would move on with the show, which he refused to do. Then I had no other choice.
