Shoaib Akhtar : I will fight to get back into the team

Shoaib Akhtar's chances of coming back to the national team might be a big question mark. Pakistan's controversial pacer Shoaib Akhtar maintains that his international career is far from over. He said that he was surprised for not been included in the preliminary squad for the Twenty20 World Cup.

He said if you look at Australian pace bowler Brett Lee has fitness problems, even then he is into the Australian preliminary squad. Similarly, Shaun Tait despite his history of injury problems he is also in the squad.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has given justification for not picking Shoaib Akhtar in the preliminary squad by pointing out that he has hardly played any cricket since last May after playing against Australia in Dubai.

Shoaib Akhtar underwent a knee operation in England last year & despite his request, PCB refused to pay the bill for his treatment insisting, that he was not injured on national duty.
