Karachi: Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar has said that the International Cricket Council would kill off cricket by trying to stifle fast bowlers with rules and regulations.

"Don't try to suffocate the fast bowlers or the sport will lose its charm and following," he said on the state owned channel. Akhtar said that the ICC needs to understand the fast bowlers are the real characters of the game.

"People want to see fast bowlers run in and take wickets and show emotions. When you are trying your best for your team and running in huffing and puffing there will be emotions to be showed. What else to expect from a fast bowler," he questioned.
