Oct 19, Muhammad Arqum rated it really liked it Shelves: Look it's not even so much about how the book is written, because frankly, it isn't all that great. But it's Shoaib bhai we are talking about: At points you are like man, was everybody against Shoaib?

Why couldn't he just admit that he was way too cocky for our dressing room. I liked his beginnings, he was truly an ordinary Pakistani, I believe most of young Pakista Look it's not even so much about how the book is written, because frankly, it isn't all that great.

I liked his beginnings, he was truly an ordinary Pakistani, I believe most of young Pakistani guys can relate with his story. Shoaib was all about passion, that's what kept him going.. He was a man who took on everybody who did not accept his greatness, and he won in my opinion, since he did play for Pakistan for 18 years.. His account of not playing for the Pak vs India semifinal is really heart breaking and especially where he mentions Afridi coming up to him and saying "Shaoib, ye kya hogya yar" The chapter towards the end named Dressing Room is so funny I laughed out loud: D I thought that was a smart move adding something like that in the end, it neutralizes all the negativity Shoaib pointed towards when it came to Pak Dressing Room.

There are very many little exclusive insights that this book offers and I believe every Cricket Nut must read this. Look, you may not admire Shoaib the person but you gotta admit, Rawalpindi express with his massive chest out and his locks flying, his super aerodynamic action and his ferocious pace..

I felt emotional towards the end I gotta say.. Thank you Shoaib for all the moments! The Shoaib moments.. Mar 17, Aimal Khan rated it liked it. In an era of Pakistani cricketing giants, Shoaib Akthar was a towering figure. From to there was no better sight than Shoaib Akthar running half the length of the filed, steaming in with his slinging action and throwing the ball like an escaped missile at some of the finest batsmen in the world and making them look like hapless victims on the way.

Throughout his career, Shoaib Akthar has always been a polarising figure. But no one can deny that he didn't have talent or can question his In an era of Pakistani cricketing giants, Shoaib Akthar was a towering figure.

But no one can deny that he didn't have talent or can question his passion and commitment to Pakistani cricket. Its hard to believe that someone with so much talent and passion for the game only ended up played 46 tests and ODI's in an 18 year career.

But his statistics don't tell the whole story.

Controversy has always followed Shoaib Akthar both on and off the filed. Sometimes his own fault other times a victim of his own reputation. Which is why this is an important book. The book it self isn't a literary masterpiece. Its not going to win any awards but what it does well is give a vivid and entertaining account of Shoaib's rise from a poor background to a global superstar.

Although it does tends to repeat itself at times. For example how he was a misunderstood child and his lack of consulars and guidance thought out his life. Reading the book, its hard to figure out which poor soul would have been willing to guide him anyway. While shoaib gives an account of the the major controversies in his career, at times it feel like he blames everyone but himself.

For reasons unknown, shoaib chose to gloss over some of the major turning points in his career. As i said above, the book is not going to win awards but its an enjoyable read for all cricket fans especially from Pakistan.

Shoaib always wore his heart on his sleeves.. This book is not going to change your opinion of him. If you are his fan, then you will love him even more after reading this and if you are not then its safe to assume that you wont become one after reading the book either.

Regardless of what you think of him View all 3 comments. Feb 28, Sana R. Gondal rated it really liked it. This book was filled with the sort of information you really can't find elsewhere.

Not only do we get a look into Shoaib's personal life and version of events but also a glimpse at Pakistan's social and political conditions over the period of a decade. Actually, not just Pakistan, a few more countries across the cricket sphere too. The inside jokes between the actual living legends of cricket, the sort of knowledge only experience can reveal- this book was an eye opener.

I felt like Shoaib used th This book was filled with the sort of information you really can't find elsewhere. I felt like Shoaib used this opportunity to whine just a little bit and blame lots of people and maybe the claims of some conversations being fabricated in this account are true, who knows, but they're mentioned as such an after thought, you aren't deterred from the point. Honestly though, I didn't lose any respect for him despite this.

I had no idea how bloody difficult a journey this was and how full of shit the people in charge are. I was just about bursting with respect for the cricketers of my country minus those bribed at the end for the unnecessary obstacles put their way and of course, the fickle nature of fame and and being a crowd favorite.

This was a fantastic read and it contains a very bold narrative about a man who went through quite some trying times but left his mark wherever he went.

Does it give him the right to sometimes be an asshole? I can't decide that, but I do know now what provoked such controversy. And even if my opinion doesn't count, I forgive him for what comes off as slight arrogance in the book because when you're the fastest and scariest bowler in cricket history, you sort of deserve to be a little proud of yourself.

Dec 25, Rural Soul rated it it was amazing Shelves: I find myself clueless to decide how to start this. Shall this be about the book, that how it precisely captured the subject 'controversies'?

If I tried to go further, my love for Shoaib Akhtar and Cricket game will dominate my personal opinion about "Controversially Yours". Cricket had been a passion in Pakistani youth. Being raised as 90s generation in rural environment, Sports was our only entertainment. Cable network or Internet hadn't stepped on that time. As a child our only dream was to get I find myself clueless to decide how to start this. As a child our only dream was to get a chance in A level team of village while children and teens used to play uncategorised B, C and D levels.

Cricket is linked to our lives at extreme level. Even some of tragic and pleasant memories are attached to our love to cricket. My dying maternal grandma on her death bed cheered my uncle to quit worrying and turn on TV so she could see Inzimam playing.

She assured us that she won't die but she did and so as Pakistan lost against Bangladesh WC Bangladesh gained test status. When Wessler 'Hansie' Cronje was charged with matchfixing charges. My elder sister and maternal uncle quit eating for couple of days.

That was the time I saw Akhtar walking to Pakistani fast bowling arena. I guess one of most annoying things which readers find in this book is Akhtar's self centred tone of criticism. This is understandable if you didn't see Akhtar being interviewed priorly on screen. Akhtar has a very complex personality which had faced a lot of discouragement since his childhood.

His natural belief eventually made him victorious but more rude and proud. We can't blame him for that. We know how corrupt our system can become when we try to go fair for ourselves and country.

For instance Akhtar never forgot street vendor and tangah driver who had helped him in early of his career. You will be shocked to know that this fastest ever pacer once had slept on footpaths and begged for food from these innocent street people. Success isn't easy to avail. Book also confirmed the statement once he had given while talking to my friend who was a domestic cricketer, struggling in first class level.

According to my friend Akhtar claimed that he was already finished inside when they picked him eventually for international level. Due to lack of grass root coaching and excessive running had ruined his knees.

There was not a single night when he slept without physical pain. I don't know who helped him to write it but it has very firm and natural narration. This catches readers eyes. So some people are different.

I am different from him. It does not bother me. But his idea is good.

I was commentating throughout the series. In batting there were a lot of injuries and rightly so because Indian team is a human team. They were playing for a long time. Fair enough. But you did not play him for the five ODI matches. You groom a bowler.

If you give him a chance against England in India, then there is a flat wicket over here. He will get hit and his confidence will get affected. He did well against Australia with the Emerging side India A.

There are two-three more bowlers. I will talk about them when they start playing. They will retire after three seasons after bowling on these slow wickets. The former paceman, who has taken Test and ODI wickets, said Indian bowlers themselves were responsible for losing pace soon after debut.A legend of Pakistan cricket, Shoaib Akhtar is a former right-arm fast bowler, who is regarded as the fastest bowler in the world.

The country boy from Kingaroy rose to greatness in the cricket world. The media definitely took some of the quotes out of context and ran with it.
