Following Pakistan’s win against New Zealand in this T-twenty world cup, a post-match analysis was being aired on the show “Game on Hai” on PTV Sports, when the spat between Shoaib Akhtar and anchor Dr Nauman Niaz took place.

State owned PTV has now sent a recovery notice to the fast bowler worth rupees 100 million.
The notice reads “As per clause 22, both sides shall have right to terminate his agreement by serving three months’ written notice or payment in lieu thereof. Whereas, Shoaib Akhtar resigned on air on October 26 which has resulted into huge financial losses to PTV…”

Shoaib Akhtar took to Twitter to express his disappointment saying “Utterly Disappointed. After miserably failing to safeguard my respect & repute while i was working for PTV, they have now sent me a Recovery Notice. I am a fighter & will not give up & fight this legal battle. My lawyer @SalmanKNiazi1 will take this forward according to law.”

Twitter has been pouring in with messages supporting the fast bowler. Scroll down to see.

Dr Nauman Niaz has also spoken about the incident, in an interview he said “I was a host and the incident shouldn’t have happened in presence of international stars.”
