The Rawalpindi Express Got The Best Gift On His Birthday And It Will Absolutely Melt Your Heart

By Iman Zia | 14 Aug, 2017

The Rawalpindi Express aka cricket prodigy Shoaib Akhtar celebrated his birthday on the 13th of August, and splendidly enough it was a two-fold win for the tiger, who’s birthday falls a day before Independence Day. Possibly the greatest bowler to ever walk this earth, the legend turned a whopping 42 and was treated to quite the lovely delicious surprise to commemorate it.




The sportsman was given true homage to an incredible 14 years in the game – a train called the ‘Rawalpindi Express’ made entirely out of yummy sponge

The cake was a tribute to Pakistan’s unstoppable bowler and a man who would always gloriously celebrate in style…


And by style, we really mean in style


It was a heartfelt post for fans, who began reminiscing about the good old days when the Rawalpindi Express was in full form



With many commending the ‘express’ cake



With fans from across the border pouring in their adoration


And many wishing him a happy Independence Day too


It really was quite touching, as the man truly is an inspiration



We wish Shoaib Akhtar all the best. What did you think of his cake?
