Shoaib Akhtar’s genital warts keep him off T20 Team Pakistan

hoaib Akhtar’s genital warts keep him off T20 Team Pakistan
As injuries go, this one has to take the cake. And as for revelations and official press releases go, this one could be a sure nomination for the Oscar award for the best ‘visual’ effects, if not win it hands down!
In a statement graphic enough to necessitate a ‘Parental Guidance’ certificate, the Pakistan Cricket Board revealed, “The medical board has reported that Shoaib Akhtar was suffering from genital viral warts and the wound needs further care and treatment for a minimum 10 days for the purpose of healing and to achieve skin cover.”
For the uninitiated, I tried to dig it up in a medical dictionary, and it said, genital warts are a type of sexually transmitted disease (STD), also called a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Hmm, so just why the Pakistani cricket board came up with this explanation, when it would have sufficed to call it anything but what was revealed is beyond me. Unless of course, they wanted to embarrass him as a means of punishment to its perennially erring cricketer!
Akhtar has been one of Pakistan’s most controversial cricketers in their history. His offences range from the ever-so-common ball-chucking to doping, using abusive language in the ‘gentleman’s game’, smacking team-mates and calling the PCB chief by names!
Amidst all of this, Akhtar has had the time to send many a stump cart-wheeling, capture more than 400 wickets in all forms of international cricket, and bowl at speeds that are reminiscent to once found on a formula-one race track.
So while the Pakistani board has already announced that he will not be able to be featured in the ICC World T20 tournament, it would be interesting to know whether any action would be moved against the quick bowler for…er…having sex?
