Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar is in Saudi Arabia where he is performing the holy sojourn — and he is keeping his fans updated on almost every activity there.

In the latest ritual related to Hajj, Akhtar performed “rami” — act of stoning the devil — in Mina. This ritual is a symbolic reenactment of the incident between the Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and satan.

“[I] didn’t measure the speed, but the anger was definitely 100 mph,” Akhtar wrote in an Instagram post.

Also, in the video, while making a fist, he said: “Isko chorna nahi [don’t spare him.”

The cricket legend left for Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj, as a state guest of the kingdom, last week.
