Karachi10 hours ago

The rivalry between Sachin Tendulkar and Shoaib Akhtar, who are called the Gods of Cricket, has always been a matter of thrill and tales of their confrontation have also come to the fore from time to time. One was the fastest bowler in the world and the other was the best batsman. Shoaib Akhtar himself narrated a similar anecdote on Sunday.

The 46-year-old former fast bowler told that once he wanted to intentionally injure Sachin and was hitting him with back to back bouncers. However, they could not injure Sachin. But, Mohammad Asif got the advantage of this.

As long as Sachin played, he dominated the opposition bowlers. Every bowler wanted to take his wicket. It was not that easy to get Sachin out. In such a situation, when Shoaib was not able to get Sachin out in the 2006 Test, he fell behind injuring Sachin. He also hit the ball in Sachin’s helmet. But, Sachin saved his head.

In a special interview given to a website, Shoaib Akhtar has told a 16-year-old story. Shoaib said- ‘I had blood on my head that day. The talk is about Team India’s tour of Pakistan in 2006. The third test match was playing between the two teams in Karachi. I was bowling to kill Sachin.

I hit the helmet but he saved his head
All-time Fastest Bowler Shoaib said- ‘I had never said this thing before today. I always wanted to hurt him. My only intention was to injure him. Then in my mind it was not his wicket, but the injury was going on. Whereas Inzamam was constantly asking me to throw the ball in front of the wicket. I hit the ball on Sachin’s helmet. I thought it was done, but Sachin somehow saved his head.

He got the wicket of opener Salman Butt and Younis Khan, known for his technique, Mohammad Yusuf.
