WEB DESK: In the wake of Shiv Sena’s attack on BCCI office, cricketer Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar will go back for security concerns.
Akram and Akhtar were in India as part of Star Sports‘ commentary team for the India-South Africa series. They will return home before the fifth ODI in Mumbai.
Wasim Akhtar’s manager broke the news on Twitter.
The news broke soon after the ICC withdrew Aleem Dar, the Pakistani umpire, from the last two ODIs. An ICC release cited “Monday’s incident in Mumbai where a group of extremists stormed into the BCCI office” as the reason for its decision.
