Banning Bouncers is Not the Solution: Shoaib Akhtar.
The unfortunate and tragic death of Phil Hughes has given rise to another debate on the use of bouncers in cricket.
While some voices have called for the bouncer to be banned, some others have called for more regulations on its use.
But former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar is against any further regulation on the usage of bouncers. He added that Bouncers should not be banned.
That is not the solution to this issue. Phil Hughes' death is an unfortunate incident, but banning the bouncer will not help matters," said Akhtar.
During his 13-year international career, Akhtar, known for his ferocious pace, played 46 Tests, 163 ODIs and 15 T20 internationals. A number of batsmen endured the wrath of his express speed.
