Shoaib Akhtar, an iconic bowler who used to play international cricket for Pakistan, is going back to his home country after getting knee surgery in Melbourne, Australia.
Shoaib posted on Twitter with a picture to let his fans know he was back. This is something he does regularly to keep them up to date on what he is doing.
It’s time to head back home now and Thanks my brothers @13kamilkhan & @asad_ali_30 for taking care of me & another memorable trip to Melbourne. Will definitely be back healthier next time. pic.twitter.com/RfxMdJp3p7

He thanked his friends, who were with him through all the procedures and took good care of him and helped make the trip “memorable.”
The fastest bowler in the world, who is also known as the “Rawalpindi Express,” hoped that he would be healthier the next time he went to see them.
The former cricket player posted a picture of himself standing with the help of a crutch.
In a video that was posted on Twitter before the surgery, Akhtar said that he had already had five surgeries like this, but that it was “worth it” because being a fast bowler for Pakistan meant a lot to him.
After knee replacement, the legendary pacer said in December that his “running days are over.” He will no longer be able to run.
It’s important to know that the pacing legend holds the record for bowling the fastest ball at 161.3 kph, and it’s almost impossible to bowl at 219 kph.
Along with Brett Lee of Australia, he is thought to be one of the fastest bowlers in cricket history.
