Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar recently shared a quote from the Bhagavad Gita on his official Instagram account, sparking a wave of reactions. The quote, “There’s no greater enemy than an uncontrolled mind,quickly went viral, drawing attention from fans and followers worldwide. 

The 48-year-old veteran had earlier congratulated Team India for their historic T20 World Cup win over South Africa. India clinched the title with a thrilling 7-run victory on Saturday, June 29, at Kensington Oval, Barbados.

Akhtar, known for his fiery bowling and candid opinions, also reflected on Rohit Sharma's emotional reaction to the win. In a recent post on X, formerly known as Twitter, he wrote, “Rohit Sharma has made it. Emotions are really high, well-deserving victory for India. 

Many, many congratulations to them. They lost in Ahmedabad (ODI World Cup final). I have said then also that India deserved to win. And this time they won it. Rohit Sharma was down on the ground, crying, says it all. What this win means to him.”

Akhtar’s Bhagavad Gita quote came as a surprise to many, as such spiritual reflections are not typically associated with him. The intention behind the post remains unclear, but it certainly resonated with a broad audience.

Earlier in the tournament, India and Pakistan faced off in the group stage at the Nassau County Stadium on June 9, where India emerged victorious by 6 runs. This intense rivalry added another layer of significance to India’s ultimate triumph in the World Cup.
