Mumbai: Former India opener Virender Sehwag has revealed that ex-Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar was his most-feared bowler in his career.

Sehwag was speaking during a live video chat organised by UC Browser.

 

“If there is one bowler I was scared of it was Shoaib Akhtar. You didn’t know which ball he would hit on your shoe and which one on your head. And he has hit many bouncers on my head. I was scared of him but had fun hitting balls from him too,” he said.

He also added that India’s World T20 win in 2007 and the World Cup win in 2011 were his best memories.

“For us, there was two - 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup. In 2007, we had a really young team and no one had expected us to do well or win, that too in South Africa. And 2011, because before India, no other host nation had won the World Cup,” he added.

 

Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi too spoke during the video chat and recollected the country’s successful 2009 World T20 campaign.

“2009 World Cup was memorable for us because of the Sri Lanka incident that had happened and Pakistan cricket was struggling. That win was important to lift the spirits of our nation,” said Afridi.
