Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has made February 14 an even more special occasion for his fans. If the former speedster is to be believed, Valentine's Day could see him make a comeback to cricket. In a video posted on his Twitter account, Akhtar says that he is coming back to play and that he will show kids of today what speed really is.

It is being speculated that the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), which begins on February 14, could see the return of the Rawalpindi Express in some capacity with one of the teams in the league.
Akhtar retired from international cricket after the 2011 World Cup, with 178 Test, 247 ODI and 19 T20I wickets respectively.
