Former cricketer Shoaib Akhtar seems to have not just one but many 'problems' with his buddy Shahid Afridi, a list that had Afridi chuckling once Akhtar shared it with him.

Look like the legendary fast bowler had a reunion with some of his cricketing buddies in Dubai following the T20 World Cup. He met West Indies player Chris Gayle as well as Shoaib Malik and Shahid Afridi. The meet-up became the perfect opportunity to let Afridi know that Akhtar has a number of 'problems' with him, which quite frankly, are ones many men will be able to relate to.

"The problem I have with Shahid is that he's much better looking than me," he teased Afridi. "Also, he can hit the ball farther than I can. He's also more famous than I am. Another big problem is his hair, he has more hair than I have."

Afridi didn't miss the chance to pull his old buddy's leg either. He teased Akhtar about finally changing into a new shirt, asking him to wear something else apart from black.

This wasn't the first time Akhtar was spotted with Afridi in Dubai. The two ran into each other at the Dubai international stadium, during the tournament final between Australia and New Zealand on November 14.

It's always fun to see players on and off the field. As for the Rawalpindi Express' list of 'problems', we'll have to agree with him on one front — Afridi does have a luscious head of hair.
