Shoaib Akhtar reply to Virender Sehwag: Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has given an answer to Virender Sehwag on the question raised on his bowling action. He has said that if Sehwag knows more than ICC, then he has the right to express his opinion. Significantly, during a conversation, Sehwag had questioned Shoaib Akhtar’s bowling action. He had said that Shoaib used to jerk the elbow while bowling.
On this statement of Sehwag, Shoaib Akhtar while talking to a sports website said, ‘I would request Sehwag not to make such statements. However, if he knows more than the ICC, then he has the right to speak his mind. My statement will be completely opposite to that of Sehwag. I think he has been the greatest match-winning player India has ever had. He has been the best of all the openers to have played for India so far. I would not like to make such a statement or insult any player who has played at the national level. Akhtar also says that he has not seen Sehwag’s interview. That is why they do not know whether Sehwag has given this statement jokingly or by being serious.
What did Sehwag say?
Sehwag had said, ‘Shoaib knew that he jerks the elbow. He knew that he also did chucking. Otherwise why would ICC have banned him? If Brett Lee’s hand came straight down, it was easy to guess the ball. But in Shoaib’s case, you could not guess where the hand was coming from and where the ball was coming from.
Sehwag is also seen saying that, ‘I was not afraid to face Brett Lee but Shoaib.. I could not trust him. I used to think that if I hit him twice, he might bowl beamer and yorker in the next ball.
