New Delhi: Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar on Wednesday revealed that he won't be part of Indian Premier League's commentator's team during its forthcoming edition, which is scheduled to start from March 8.
For the first time, Akhtar and former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag shared a commentary box together for the official broadcasters of the recently concluded ICC World Twenty20, which forced viewers to glue to TV sets.
In the past, Akhtar has been part of the IPL's official commentary team, where he gave his analysis along side former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu, Anchor Gaurav Kapoor, Samir Kochhar and many others.
But this time, his fans will miss him during the IPL's ninth edition as the fastest bowler tweeted that he is taking some time off from work as he wants to spend some time with his family.
Am taking some time off from work and really want to spend time with my family ..So am not doing Ipl for this season ..best of luck Sony..
