Rawalpindi Express Shoaib Akhtar criticized Sachin and Dravid the previous day by saying that Sachin and Dravid were not match winning players and that they were afraid of his deliveries. Pakistan pacer said “I think players like Sachin and Dravid weren’t exactly match winners to start with, nor did they know the art of finishing the game,”. Shoaib holds the record for the fastest delivery(100.2 mph) in cricket ever. He also added that “I bowled a particularly fast ball which he, to my amazement didn`t even touch. He walked away! That was the first time I saw him walk away from me that, too, on the slow track at Faisalabad,” Akhtar wrote.
What do you guys think? Is Shoaib Right in his assessment? Or he is been way off his mark in judging two of the greatest batsmen of the last 2 decades? Leave your comments
