Lahore : Last night, Shoaib Malik started crying in front of the audience at the Pepsi Future 11 opening ceremony. The star was asked to talk about the trials that are going to take place in Pakistan to hunt talented young players from all over Pakistan.
Shoaib started the speech with his life story, how he had no shoes to wear when he had to go to the under 15 trials and he had to borrow them from someone and even those shoes were in a very bad condition. He mentioned how he was thrilled to meet Wasim Akram there and even more thrilled to learn that he had been selected. Just then he started talking about his father’s support in life and broke down into tears. He said he can talk about anything but his his late father. Wasim Akram had to go the stage to stop him from crying, only then Shoaib choked down his tears and gathered courage to continue. Everybody was applauding the star on his hard work and talent
Shoaib Malik is a very humble superstar who always motivates others by his speeches. He appreciates effort because, according to him, no one can stop you if you really have talent and if you work hard for your dreams. It was heartbreaking for everyone to see him breaking down at the stage.
