Karachi: TV anchor Nauman Niaz has offered an  "unconditional" apology to Shoaib Akhtar for the on-air spat between them but also said that PTV was being "taken for granted" by the former Pakistan pacer and that also contributed in the ugly episode.

Akhtar was told to leave the set by Niaz and former Pakistan cricketer immediately announced that he is resigning as PTV's cricket analyst. The manner in which Niaz treated Akhtar had caused a storm on social media with many demanding the termination of the TV host. The incident took place during a World Cup show in which stalwarts like Sir Viv Richards, David Gower, Rashid Latif, Aaqib Javed, Azhar Mahmood, Umar Gul and Sana Mir were also present.

Akhtar had refused to appear before an inquiry committee formed by the PTV management until Niaz was sacked for his behaviour.
