Former right-arm fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar lauded an Indian artist for drawing a hyper-realistic ballpoint sketch of famed former cricketer and commentator, on Monday. 

Titled ‘Fast and the Furious,’ the jaw-dropping artwork shared on Twitter and Instagram was made by the New Delhi-based freelance artist Chitrakar Lucky.

The sketch, which honours Pakistan’s “Rawalpindi Express,” shows two expressions of the legendary fast bowler, one in black ink and the other in red — the latter indicative of the cricketer’s passion for cricket.

Responding to Lucky, Shoaib Akhtar re-shared their artwork, saying it was “lovely work”.

“I can’t thank you guys enough who make these illustrations by giving so much time & dedication,” he added.

“Appreciate” the effort, the cricketer added on Instagram.
