Shoaib Akhtar revealed the most decorated Indian batsman according to him. Rawalpindi Express Shoaib Akhtar named the bravest batsman he ever bowled to from Team India during his active days.
Rawalpindi Express Shoaib Akhtar was a fierce cricketer during his active days on the 22-yard cricket strip. Akhtar’s career was marred with controversies and several injuries but he remained one of the toughest bowlers in international cricket for his raw pace and extra bounce.
In a career where he claimed 444 wickets across all formats, Akhtar enjoyed a fierce rivalry with plenty of Indian cricketers.
In a recent interaction, the 44-year-old was asked to mention the bravest Indian batsman he ever bowled to. In this regard, Akhtar had quite a few options as he shared the cricket field with greats like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, MS Dhoni and the likes.
Sourav Ganguly was the bravest batsman I had bowled to : Shoaib Akhtar’s high praise for India great.
If I talked about India , then it will be sourav Ganguly. India haven’t produced a better captain than him. Dhoni is very good , he’s a fabulous captain but when you talked about team building then Ganguly did a great job, said Akhtar.
Under his leadership, India won the NatWest Trophy 2002, and started competing in all formats while playing overseas.
