For knee reconstruction, Shoaib Akhtar has left for Australia

Former pacer Shoaib Akhtar left for Melbourne, Australia on Tuesday to undergo his right knee partially reconstructed.

“Doctors say I’m going to have to undergo surgery for six to seven hours. Let’s see what they’re going to tell when I get there. How soon and how much do they want to implant the procedure?”he said while on board the Melbourne-bound aircraft on his YouTube channel.

The 44-year-old was of the view that as per medical rules any sort of knee replacement should not take place before one turns sixty. “It is unfortunate that it is taking place at this age.”

“I’ve been playing for Pakistan with pain in my knee. It has become necessary to go for its remedy now. I’ve left my family. I’ve left everyone and this is not a very happy feeling. But this is also important to get my knee sorted out,” Shoaib, who had over 1.5 million subscribers on his YouTube channel added.
