"There’s another name you guys mess up as well. Try pronounce Fakhar.” former Pakistan pacer said. The comment left the Aussie commentators in splits.

Akram went out on to narrate on his Australian wife Shaneira's trouble in pronouncing the name. He added that Australians can't pronounce 'K' in Fakhar's name.

"So my wife came to Pakistan and my son’s friend’s name was Fakhar. He brought his friend. He was 12 years old and he said, this is my friend Fakhar. Because Australians can’t pronounce ‘K’, it took her about two years to pronounce his name." he said.
