Pakistan’s famous vlogger Shiraz named his favourite cricketer in a video on his official YouTube channel.

In one of his latest videos, Shiraz named world’s fastest bowler Shoaib Akhtar as the cricketer he likes the most.

Despite not being able to pronounce Akhtar’s name properly, Shiraz said that the pacer was “extremely dangerous” with the ball.

Akhtar’s quickest recorded delivery was 161.3kph against England in a World Cup match at Cape Town in 2003.

The right-armer made his Test debut against West Indies at Rawalpindi in 1997.

Akhtar retired from international cricket during World Cup 2011 after taking 178 Test and 247 one-day wickets in a career largely affected by injuries and controversies.

The six-year-old Shiraz shot to fame after uploading adorable videos on his YouTube channel titled ‘Shirazi Village Vlogs’.

In the bio of his YouTube channel, Shiraz claims that he is "the youngest YouTuber and vlogger in Pakistan". 

In a short span of time, Shiraz bagged a YouTube silver play button and has more than one million subscribers on his channel.

The vlogger, who hails from Gilgit Baltistan’s Skardu district, also recently met Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
