Former Pakistan pace spearhead Shoaib Akhtar has hailed the appointment of former Indian captain Saurav Ganguly as the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), and compared him to Prime Minister Pakistan Imran Khan.

While sharing his views on his Youtube channel, Akhtar said “This is a massive news. India is playing very smart. They are bringing their A-class people to the forefront.”

“If there was one man who transformed Indian captain, it was Saurav Ganguly. Before him, in 1996 and 1998, I never felt that India could have beaten Pakistan,” the Rawalpindi-Express said.

Akhtar said that Ganguly’s style of leadership had a lot in common with Pakistan’s World Cup-winning skipper and current premier.

The former speedster also recalled his old battles with Ganguly, again clarifying that contrary to popular belief his Indian counterpart was not afraid of him.
