Shoaib Akhtar sent back from London due to visa problem
Fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has been sent back from London as he had no working visa. He had reached London for playing cricket for Surrey - an English county. He was determined to make a successful return to county cricket and help Surrey with his performance in the county's remaining three matches. Although the Pakistan Cricket Board had given Akhtar a No Objection Certificate, clearing the way for him to play in Surrey's last three County Championship matches but the British immigration officials sent him back to Pakistan as he could not show them his working visa.
