New Delhi: Former Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar became the butt of all jokes on Twitter on Monday after he posted a tweet which caused massive confusion on social micro-blogging site Twitter.
The Rawalpindi Express shared a photograph with Samina Baig – first Pakistani woman to scale
Everest. However, for reasons unknown, Akhtar goofed up with his English and posted a tweet that read, "Hounour of meeting the First Lady of Pakistan who concerned Mount Everest with her share will proud of you Samina..like the whole country."
The Twitterati could not have missed out on a chance to troll the speedster.

Akhtar later realised his mistake and posted a proper tweet which read, "In d inspiring company of Samina Baig,1st Pakistani woman 2 scale Everest. It wasn't an expedition but a statement."
