Its more than 5 years since Shoaib Akhtar has exited from international cricket, but even than no one has even dared to dethrone Akhtar as the world’s fastest’s bowler, and that is the reason he is regarded as one of the most prominent legends of Pakistan cricket.
In a latest show, ‘The Sportsman’ hosted by Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar revealed the most difficult batsman he ever bowled to, and unexpectedly it was not Sachin Tendulkar.
The 41-years-old fast bowler named Inzamam ul Haq as the most difficult batsman he ever bowled to.
“There were a lot of players in the world [whom I found difficult to get out] but the most difficult, whom I couldn’t even get out in the nets, was Inzamam,” said Akhtar in the Wasim Akram-hosted show The Sportsman.
“I think there was no other player who played me better than him. His footwork was quick, he would place himself and be ready to play. He could see the ball earlier than many. I always thought he had an extra second. However fast I bowl, he had placed himself where the ball would land,” he added.
Shoaib Akhtar also talked about many of the unforgettable moments during his career with Wasim Akram.
