The ace Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar is now being targeted by the English county side Surry who are presently fighting the relegation from the premier 1st division of the County Championship.
Surrey is possibly look set to get dropped as they are placed at the bottom of the table by only 18 points in hand with 3 matches to play. And now in this crunch situation, the cricket manager of Surrey, Alan Butcher, is planning to include Shoaib for the upcoming matches. Especially against Kent, Butcher wants Shoaib.
Butcher claimed that he had already talked with the lanky fast bowler and they are now wanting to see whether Shoaib get himself ready for this crunch game of surrey.
The manager also said that they have got 3 games in their hand which they desperate to win and to do that they there needs to be something special to happen. But it needs to be seen if there is any sort of legal problem to include a foreign player in the midst of a season. On the other hand, it has to be seen how he performs if he plays.
But one thing is sure he will give his best to this because this performance can prove his candidature for the forthcoming cricket series of Pakistan and T20 cricket matches especially the IPL.
