Legendary Pakistan seamer Shoaib Akhtar showed off his Rawalpindi and Pakistan pride following the conclusion of the first Test between the national team and Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi.
The match, which ended as a draw, was a historic one as it marked the return of Test cricket to Pakistan after 10 years.
After former Pakistan cricketer and national selector Mohammad Wasim posted a video on Twitter, Akhtar replied in patriotic fashion.
