Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar on Tuesday accepted IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals’ challenge of facing their star bowler Jofra Archer.
Days after Akhtar and Pakistani singer turned actor Ali Zafar locked horns in a cracking battle on the pitch, Royals challenged the duo to face Archer next time.
“Hey @AliZafarsays @shoaib100mph, that looks like fun. How about facing @jofraarcher next?” the inaugural IPL champions tweeted.

Akhtar has been pretty active on social media these days and regularly posts videos on his YouTube channel pertaining to the latest happenings in the world of cricket.
Last week, the Rawalpindi Express took his fans by surprise as he posted a message for Zafar.
“Suna hai bara cricketer hai tu @AliZafarsays ??” he tweeted.
