As people of Pakistan celebrated their 73rd Independence day on August 14, former cricketer Wasim Akram spread some joy on the occasion with a hilarious tweet. Taking to the micro-blogging website, the 53-year-old tweeted, "The day we celebrate Pakistan s independence happens to be the same day that I lost mine."
He then went on to wish his wife, Shaniera Thompson on their wedding anniversary and wrote, "Happy Anniversary to @iamShaniera my life means nothing without you in it!" With a following of over 5 million on Twitter, it did not take long for Akram’s post to go viral.
