Akhtar is not complaining. He is happy about the fact that he is being paid to listen to jokes. I am a fun loving person. More than being a judge, I am happy to be part of a grand show like the Indian Mazak League. I am sure with the kind of talent we have on the show it will be loads of fun. I will be actually paid to enjoy the jokes. I don t think there can be a better job than this in the whole world, according to deccanchronicle.com.

Talking about his fellow judge, Akhrat says, Harbhajan and I have had some interesting battles on the cricket field. He is a good competitor and now we will be a team on the comedy show.

Shoaib then lists some of the funniest people from the Pakistan dressing room. Take it from me, Pakistan dressing room was and is the best dressing room for a cricketer. There is so much banter, harmless leg-pulling, one-liners in the Pakistan team that my jaws use to ache due to all the laughing. It was fun to be with guys like Mohammed Yusuf, Shoaib Mallik. Even seniors like Wasim Akram and Inzamam-ul Haq were unbelievably funny. I still can t get over the mimicry acts of Shoaib Mallik, that man is on another level, says the former Pakistan fast bowler.
