Cricket, Warts and All

This next story is for those of you that didn’t think the words “cricket” and “genital warts” could be in the same story.

Pakistan pulled fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar out of next month’s World Twenty20 tournament in England due to him suffering from genital warts, the Pakistan Cricket Board said Thursday.

“We have pulled him out of the World Twenty20 on the basis of a medical report given by our doctor which said that Akhtar needs 10 days to recover from groin wounds,” the PCB said.

“The medical board has reported that Akhtar was suffering from genital viral warts.”

Akhtar becomes the first casualty of the 12-team event for which final 15-man squads were announced on May 5.
